im looking at a clk63 , but I’m worried about the issues on the engine are they common place or is it like a lot of things blown out of proportion as the internet often does??

If you know the engine number then there’s a possibility it’s outside of the headbolt issue period, though in all likelihood if it’s not happened already it will possibly be fine (most are)

Mainly Mercedes
Headbolts the biggy in that age range. There are some cam/bucket foibles, but regular oil changes with decent quality lubricant can mitigate that
