I have to second that. Really good job to mercedesshop.com and especially to stevebl. I am a relatively new owner of a 1995 E320 and have already have gotten some very good, solid and accurate advice on this board. It was one of the reasons I went with purchasing this auto (I was looking at a new Jetta TDI).
another subject - I have been watching and reading the reports on the new C series C270 - 5 cyl. turbodiesel. Durn, I wish it was available here. Top speed is limited at around 144 mph. I have a feeling that there is a lot of politics being played (read lobbying from the oil companies) to prevent these autos from being brought to the US.
thanks everybody. We can only wish.
