I'll bet the old head gasket of my SDL that there are DOT and EPA certification tags on those cars.

Hi! Sixto:

Thank you for your info.

Actually, I am not sure the SEL is euro or us spec.

The owner said it's from the authorized "Mercdes Benz of Taiwan",
then I assume it's directly from Germany.

Well, I know that US spec has speed limit, but I don't really drive that fast, so I think US version is ok for me.
