Unless the owner did an 617 conversion or did a custom turbo job to the 616.

It's a 240D for sure, you can tell by the lack of chrome trim on the tail lights.

OH NO! The return of the Ebay "turbo" 240D!!


240D turbo for sale

Looks like it was repainted/had a rear end repair, and the wrong badge was put on.

That's becuase there is none. The seller repeatedly insisted that there was and that it was a factory option.

I think the disease is spreading. Now we have two different "turbo" 240D's.

Wow, looks like this was in eBay already.... I actually saw the ad in Autotrader without pictures so I emailed the "dealer" and he sent me like a gazillion pics this being one of them. Must not have sold in eBay, ey?

Has anyone actually test driven this baby?

Not with those park bench bumpers and a USA dealer code.

look at the dash cluster, dual heat controls... is this normal on 240's? I thought only the euro's had that... the bumpers and such could have been changed.
