My first M112 had a cps fail after 13 years and 112,000 km ,about 66,000 miles.
My second M112 had a cps fail after 13 years and only 40,000 km,,or about 24,000 miles.
One died when stopped at traffic lights...the other one failed to restart after being stopped for half an hour at the shops ...both had to be towed ,,and after that the next day would run for only about 5 minutes before dying again.
Consequently , fitting a new CPS to my newly acquired CLK55 ( 96,000 km or 58,000 miles ) was a high priority,,,so I did it about two weeks after I got the car. Difficult job due to limited access, but not impossible. I posted it on here in August ,2018.
I was determined to not be stranded without warning again ,,,and I would highly recommend you do the same,,,be careful to get a genuine Bosch like everyone here says.
