So I was driving home from my friends house at about 10PM last night when the Engine light came on my fairly new to me 2008 CLK 280. Being a 280 I have checked the engine number of the M272 engine and it looks to be quite past the balance shaft issue.
I see P0128 refers to the...

I recently purchased this 2006 CLK 280 Convertible. It's done 50k miles, been very well looked after.
I gave it a proper machine polish (wasn't bad at all) wax etc. Took a few pics yesterday. Love it, but already looking at CLK 55 Convertibles now!

My ML 280 is struggling to start in the mornings.
