I have a 190 E 2.3 in Mint Condition and I had a similar problem with the transmission at idle I thought that this repair would break the bank however its simply the motor mounts that need to be replaced I ordered the parts through Mercedes and had my personal mechanic install the parts it wasa simple job. As far as a repaint the best place I think is Ben Clymers they repainted my mothers 5-Series for i think 5 Grand and the paint job comes with a lifetime warranty for cracking peeling etc. and as far as the rest of your problems I would suggest you buy the replacement parts via the dealer and contact a reliable mercedes certified mechanic. And finally to find any Upgradeable parts take a look at PerformanceProduct.com I found lots of useful upgradeable parts here at reasonable prices.
To stop vibrations check the engine mountings rubber bushes! This car sounds expensive.
A good paint job i would say around 3000. Depending on the miles it probably wouldnt be worth putting all the money into it.
Think again. You may just want to replace it with a newer one, unless you do most of the work yourself.
