I am advanced DIY so I will never pay $5-6000 extra for CPO, but per my experience no warranty will be fully satisfy when you buy car with manufacturing weak points.
Recently I bought another W210 with 250,000 on it. It is diesel, so the mileage means nothing for the engine. Having owning 3 of those already I have high confidence in the model. Bottom line - the cheap Mercedes with high mileage needed new thermostat and driver seat skin, but other than that with only few scratches is perfect.
