Bought my C220 a few months ago as a first car.
2 weeks later one of the camshafts snapped.
Ended up replacing the motor(and most of the electrics such as the wiring harness)
It had done 260XXX k's but i thought it would have lasted longer being a benz, however I don't know how it was driven previously.
Was wondering if the camshaft failing was a common issue due to the hydrollic tensioner in the M111 engine.
