Default W203 timing belt question

Can any c-class owners let me know after how many miles the timing belt needs changed and how much that part and service cost. I'm talking about a W203 (2002-2007). This would help me in deciding on getting a used C240 or C280.

Really, there is no timing belt that requires changing? I heard that the CLK-Class does around 75K miles, and thought that maybe it was similar to the C-Class. Anyway, are there any large/expensive services required on a W203 C-Class within its first 100K miles?
