I did have a W124 - E420 and a W123 - 300CD Turbo. Hence, I didn't want another 123/124 bodied cars.

and yah I saw the typo on the cyl. count too, but that's fine. Maybe it'll weed off people who don't know better

I would prefer a Turbo myself but this would be a great car to run around the city in and keep as a second car! Back in 2001, I almost picked up a cherry 190D 2.5T in diamond blue metallic with blue interior for $3500.... I should've!!

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.
