I was under the impression that the wiring harnesses were bad only from 1993-1995, and only on all M104 engines - on the C, E, and S classes - on the 2.8 and 3.2 liter engines.

The wiring harnesses on the 1990-1992 3.0 liter M104 300CE's were fine.

While there might be wiring harness issues with some 400E's, it is not systemic to the model, and not due to bad wiring insulation, but maybe chafing of the wires.
I remember reading somewhere that the M119 W124 equipped cars are also wiring harness defective. I could be wrong...
