C219 Maintenance Overhead

I am looking at maybe buying a C219. Just looking around at the moment and have not found a specific car yet.

How does the C219 rate in terms of maintenance costs?

It seems to have some very complicated stuff for electronic braking and steering in the early models.

I have one car I am going to look at which is a 2005 so it predates the simplifications that were introduced in 2006 I think.

Is it worth avoiding the early models and go for a 2006+

Is the C219 generally considered to be reasonable on maintenance costs or expensive?

I would be looking at getting a local garage to service to avoid the dealership rates. This is how I have looked after my Jag for 10 years with no dramas.

Will local garages service these cars or are they too complicated?

Thanks
