Hey Greg, you didn't see wrong. As you will see in my signature line, an E300 Diesel is my wife's daily ride. It's the E class chassis with a normally-aspirated 3.0 liter diesel.
Turbocharging was available in '97, and I think '98, then no more diesel.
It's quite a nice car, if you don't mind the less-than-spectacular acceleration common to most diesels. I have read that the '97 turbodiesels can make up to 200 hp with the right coaxing.
