Fuel Pressure Regulator is about $50 or so from online shops if you can install/get it installed for free or cheap then it's a quick fix. I would tend to wonder if it's your MAF (also not too difficult to replace and might cost under $200 for your car online, but buy Bosch ONLY and buy from reputable seller, not eBay. There are fakes stamped "Bosch" that won't work properly then you won't know if it's truly the MAF or not).
The car is also begging you for service since it has said you are 10k miles behind on a service, that meant is was late when you bought it. Why did you buy a car with a warning if you didn't know what it meant btw? In any event, service in a timely and practical manner is the only real way to prevent future issues like this and much worse from happening, and it's actually cheaper to prevent issues than try to fix them after they occur so please don't be afraid to do some basic maintenance, spend some time here and learn to do some basic things yourself, it can be a lot of fun! Finally, try the W203 forum for specific advice on your car, not the AMG forum but the one listed under "sedans" for W203, other people who own your same car can offer good advice to you.
