Although I was originally 'intent' on finding an 08/09 E320 Bluetec, I think I lucked out choosing a very well-kept, lowish miled 2006 E320 I6 CDI instead, for a lot less money than I had originally planned on spending. I can buy numerous SBC parts/labor, and their associated brake system replacements over the years, if and when necessary. Once I learned about how fantastic the SBC system's performance aspects were, in my judgement, I'm quite pleased with it.
