The price seems cheap, only 1 bid so far. It is listed as a 4 cyl but is really 5 (count the intake runners in the under-hood photo. The 2.2L was the 4 cyl. If the car is in good shape you will really enjoy driving it on the highway. It is a bit slow to takeoff, but after you reach the powerband, around 2300rpm, it will cruise for hours. At highway speeds you can pass others like nobody's business and not even know it is a diesel. Bear in mind that the W201 has a lot less room in the back seat area, but the tradeoff is great mileage.
