Interior and body parts aren't fuel specific.

Of this I am well aware, and I plan to raid the local junkyard this week. That was more of a comment on the longevity of our diesels.

More a comment on the diesels not being eligible due to high mpg ratings.

The good thing was that none of the diesels within the CARS time period had bad enough fuel economy to be eligible. So by the rules, not a single MB diesel was killed by the program.


Re the photos: what a waste of good M119's!

Exactly, the diesels didn't qualify for the CFC program. I just pulled the entire interior (literally, the entire interior) out of an 89 300SE that suprisingly read 240k on the odometer. The dash had no cracks and the seats were in great shape. Paid about $200 for everything at the pick n pull.

Next step...put it all in the SD (rear seats are already in).
