B200?

I just saw a B200 driving around MI (with normal MI plates), I guess someone imported one to the US.

Oh yeah, I can get B200 down the street from me

My dad's friend used to have a B210

Wow I'm just full of zingers today.

I don't think you can just import cars anymore, I started a thread a while back about importing new diesels. There are problems with DOT standards and emissions. You probably just confused it with an r-class

Well, it said B200 on the rear lid, I followed it for a couple of miles.

Hmm, perhaps it just inadvertently complies with DOT and EPA standards? Or maybe someone just bought the trunk badge and pasted it on their r class. Or, even less probable, someone skirted the law and somehow imported one. Canadian, perhaps?

It wasn't a R-class, it also didn't have a CDI badge, so it seems to be a gasser. Someone must have done some magic to get it registered.

When I read this thread I thought it was going to be about some truck stop selling b200 biodiesel.

I was trying to wrap my head around how a biodiesel concoction could have more than 100%

I'd never seen one in person, so I had to look up a photo.

I have seen one in MI too but I think it had Canadian Plates. The B200 gasser is actually wimpier than the diesel. 136hp and 141lb/ft torque. The equally sized B200 cdi makes 140hp and 221lb/ft of torque!

What I want is a C200 or 220 cdi, or an E 220 cdi. That 220 engine has some serious power, and still gets like 40mpg!

There is a B200 in Southern California.




Looked into importing on a year ago. Did not seem all that difficult, just needed to file paperwork.
