on the same note:

The daily driver on the main character in "Pushing daisies" is a USA diesel
W115. Brown with tobacco interior. I have not yet figure out if 240D or 300D.

It looks like its an early one too....probably a N/A engine?? The headrests look like the 70's/1980 type. Also, in the shots where you see the back of the car it does not have the turbo diesel badge. Unless its a gasser euro model or something....my friend's mom had a 280te wagon....who knows. I'll have to see the movie.

They'd better not blow it up!!!!!!

the red wagon in "Dan's..."
is definitively an early pre 1980 wagon. It is a US spec one so the most probable is a 300TD NA.
