2000 C230 Kompressor noise

My C230 supercharger is making a slightly raspy, high-pitched noise, that increases/decreases w the revs, worse when cold.
The previous owner claims, it's had this noise since he bought the car at 60K!
The car seems well-maintained and the engine oil clean, synthetic...
The engine performs nicely at 128K. Mine seems noisier than I care for.
For comparison, I drove a SLK and heard no kompressor noises.

I'd like to know what normal life-expectancy for one of these superchargers is, and what some of the common problems are... Do the clutches and/or pulleys go bad, and what are the telltale signs of the above?
Any comments will be appreciated!
