Suginami, where did you hear that W210s have the buffer built in?
The Technical Editorial in a previous issue of The Star Magazine.

"The display is a plateu display - the pointer stops at approximately 95C at temperatures between 95C and 115C. Temperatures in this range are not considered critical. The correct temperature is only displayed again from a temperature of 116C. This prevents the drivery from being disturbed by excessive needle movement in the display. The warning range starts at 116C.

The coolant temperature signal comes from the engine control module, and the guage is activated by a stepper motor."
