Looking at a W203

I'm looking at a very good condition C230 Sport in Virginia. 41K miles.

Vin# WDBRF52H17F932932

hoping to confirm that it is outside the range of vehicles with potential balance shaft issues.

Thanks!!

I'm replacing my 1994 C280 (W202) which took me 232K miles before transmission issues became more trouble than the car was worth.

WDBRF52H17F932932 has M272 engine #602903, which is beyond the affected range for balance shaft issues , but is still in range for potential camshaft magnets (but those are cheap and easy to replace).
