Just hit 64600 miles in my 1997 (1998 in u.s) C230 K AMG sport Package.
Full oil change with all filters and plugs.
Anything else I should Know, or do ?

When will the clutch be due for change and is there some kind of gearbox service to be done ?

Thanks..

Most people are changing their transmission fluid + filter at 50-60k miles now. I went ahead and changed mine before that just because the fluid is now 9 years old. Don't believe the "sealed for life" claim. Even MB is backing off of that now. Given all of the posts on the MB forums in regard to failing transmissions, it sounds like a good gamble for preventative reasons. Make sure to only use the correct synthetic fluid if your car requires it. It is rather expensive.

Recommend: Install a New Fuel Filter. New Cabin Air Filter. New Engine Air Filter.
Full Tranny Oil Change + Differential.

Optional: Inspect your Brake Pads, front and Rear, and Rotors
If you change out Brake Pads and/or Rotors-Flush and Refill your Brake Fluid with DOT3/4 Brake Fluid.
VERIFY this with your Owners Manual.
