What did you torque your wheels to?

Brakes designed for Mercedes are very sensitive to torque because they are relatively thin compared to other vehicles (of the same gross weight category). That's one reason why shops shy away from turning them, and MB never recommends you do.

I had the same exact symptons as you mentioned, I went back retorqued everything exactly to spec and also after a 100 miles of driving and the vibration went away, not completely gone but definitely MUCH better. What little vibration is left I chalk up to permanent warpage that I caused for over-torquing and can't be felt unless I'm breaking relatively hard at >75MPH.

I have a 1994 Wagon, same generation as yours.

Edit: My wheel torque was lowered from 100ft/lbs to 81ft/lbs
