Going to be newbie C63 owner

I join the community in thanking Joe; he just verified that the car VIN I posted above, is probably free of the head bolt affliction; I am about to close the deal on a low miles 2011 C63 in mint condition, hello all.

I haven't been around these forums in a while but a few of these posts are written in a way that I'm wondering if in the past while Mercedes has acknowledged this issue finally? Was there a TSB or extended warranty or anything? In the past when I've read about this, going into your local MB to ask about this issue would usually just get you a confuses salesman and in this thread them running your VIN is being discussed.

Joe would you kindly run a data sheet for me. It would be greatly appreciated. I guess based on a few of your posts I can assume mine is a head bolt concern VIN.

Thanks

Hi Joe, I'm in Japan. I hope it will work for my car too. I'm guessing I'm in the affected zone but could you please let me know?

WDD2040771F447838

Also wondering what I should do about this, be preventative? I bought my car outright, no warranty, it's a '10 c63 it has 9000 miles. Or do I just hope it will be ok and fix it if anything does happen?

Thank you very much

Rob

Yes, there is a TSB. The number below is on Star but the link hasn't worked for quite some time. Early on, I was able to read the bulletin, but MB has since blocked download. You can show this to a dealer and they can look it up.
