Hang on for a '98 E300Turbodiesel. Dynamite compared to the non-turbo. I run a Euro '97 Avantgarde. My 7th daily Merc. Build quality not great compared to W123 and W124. Entire sunroof assembly replaced twice, cd wiring, antenna, front windows squeek.A mysterious pipe even blew off the turbo. I thought the engine had blown. I bought it with 30k up, now at 62k and bedded in. Love it but it has to go soon. Too fast(chipped). I am finding myself hitting early 100's almost every day. Thinking of going for a 70's V8 slug instead.
