When the infamous M104 leaking head gasket is properly replaced, is the problem solved? Or is there a history of recurrance.

ARJAY, did you have a c-280
repaired or r u just asking?
milage on car (curious)
I think in archives somebody
had to get gasket done twice over but
it may have been due to inadequate job
making for premature failure.

It is a '95 C280. The gasket was replaced at 30,500 miles. It now has 85,500 and no problems. Just curious to know if it may happen again. I couldn't locate information in the archives that directly answered this question, although it may be there somewhere.
