I think that Mercedes used very hard valve seats anyway. You will be fine, if not, all that is done is a valve job with hardened seats. The only thing the lead does is lube the top end. As a tech in the Us, this is what I have heard for I have never seen leaded fuel with the exception of race and aviation fuel! My whole life has been with unleaded fuel and it is fine.
