I dealt with mechanical key/cylinder on 1997 E class. Even the new cylinders are pretty affordable -replacing them takes good trick. I managed to lock the wheel blockade and had to cut it off. Look for the thread in W210 section.
If you have just worn blade, but good cylinder the blade alone cost in $5 range at Duval. I am gettig house keys cut for less than $2.
