Suggested list for 140-270-21-00-88 is only $1830.00 & that is from MB. Labor to install is 6.5-7 hrs @ local labor rate. Should be done in a day!!! SHAME on the person that quoted that price. Torque converter rarely needs replacing unless trans is completely burned & car won't move. Even if it is burnt the converter lists for $1310. Total is less than HALF of estimate. I would ask MBUSA for goodwill assistance! at that mileage.
