Not sure about that one. But one day, while I was picking up parts for my 300E, I stopped at the showroom and looked over a loaded ML430 Sport. Along with all of the goodies like third row seats and video entertainment system, it DID have the walnut sport shifter! I don't know why the E-series sport wouldn't...
