If you are certain that yours is gone for good, I would investigate the cost of sending it back to the manufacturer (it used to be Bosch and it still might) and trading it for a factory re-built unit. I had mine replaced under CPO warranty recently and the parts guy said mine would have cost $4000 new.

How old is the car - must 5 years or less for W211? Have you checked your warranty? It may be longer than the overall warranty for expensive components like this.

Otherwise, it may be worthwhile contacting MB either yourself or through a dealer. They sometimes will offer a break on expensive items like this, just based on goodwill. A friend of mine had the "computer" on his '99 C230 fail and MB provided a NEW replacement for about 1/2 price - cost him under C$2k installed.
