Post M273 Balance Shaft Gear Issue

I am about to purchase an 09 E550 and am very excited about the car. I came across some info last night on a class action suit for a idle gear for a certian engine serial # range. Can anyone tell me if this vin # has an engine in the effected range?


Thanks to whoever can help, I dont want to buy the car if I may have a $7000 repair bill.‏
