I've checked a number of sources and they all state that the engines in these are Interference Engines so there is a good chance of contact between the valves and the piston crowns. A compression test once the timing has been re-set would be a simple way to check if this has happened without taking the engine to pieces.
Yes you can bend valves and mercedes will generally not cover resultant damage even during warranty period.Mercedessource is a good site hosted by a Mercedes technician
