The M156 AMG engines do not have problems with the "balance shaft" failure, but they do have other issues with head bolts deteriorating and valve lifters failing. My understanding is that they are all problematic before about MY2011.

Here's the TSB about the adusters/lifters:

And the head bolts:

That's a MY2006. All MY2006's are in range for possible balance shaft failure.
