Exclamation Help! More transmission "CLUNKing"

Well, after taking my C280 to my Independent, the vibration felt when putting the car in gear turned out to be the motor mounts. The mechanic says the transmission might be hosed - there is a solid "CLUNK" when putting it in gear (not normal for sure - it's very hard). My question is: I've only got 43K on the car - I've heard and seen on here a lot of concerns about the transmission on these cars, so what other things should I be thinking about? I've read on hear about these machines needing a new tranny computer - a recall by MB or something. Please tell me there are other things to look at besides a rebuilt transmission - my mechanic is awesome, but this seems a bit extreme. HELP! and thanks!
