Thanks for the reply Mark.. yes, it is the 126 long body, same as the the gasoline-fired SEL cars.. a rare find with the larger 3.5 diesel turbo engine, only a few for sale in the country at any one time, when you do find a clean one the sellers make no apology for asking what I found to be an average of $5,000 to $11,000 over blue book. (they ranged from $25k to 29.5K) I lucked out at this one at $19k. SPOTTLESS not a nick on the paint or wood, perfect leather, mint top and bottom and runs real strong (even smells new).. no engine blowby, etc. Yet, it sounds like a garden tractor outside at idle due to missing encapsulation panel. I'm convinced it was robbed while at the dealer since the hardware that supports is very clean. I'm beginning to realize that it's not to be found anywhere else.. even used ones would likely not be acceptable since the acoustic material can easily be ruined by leaking fluids. Thanks,
