98-00 Kompressor or C280?

About to buy my first Mercedes in the next 2-3 weeks. The cars I'm trying to decide from have between 90k and 120k miles on them. I'm leaning towards the 280 just because it's a larger engine and I don't want to have supercharger problems since the miles will be getting up there soon. Do many people have problems with the superchargers with high miles?

Also, another C230 I'm looking at, the odometer stopped working. Is that a common problem with these models? I'm guessing that would normally be a pretty simple fix.
