Consider all 2006 and 2007 models as candidates for the balance shaft repair. Officially, Mercedes issued a TSB (technical service bulletin OR The Sucker Buys) that says all 2006's and some 2007's. However, since there are some '08's showing up with the problem, I would say it's possible with all but most likely with all 06's and early 2007's.
Now that I've said that, I think it's unlikely you will have the problem since the issue occurred on most vehicles before your mileage mark.
