No avoiding it any longer - the 300E needs a rear muffler. What was once a nice sort of growl has become a plain old annoying noise. I plan to go through Partsshop on this and they list the following:

Eberspaecher $175.89
Bosal $222.14
Ansa $182.37

Are there any recommendations? I would like it to be quiet, not hurt performance, and look stock. In this range price is not an issue.

Eberspeacher...even in Europe!
Like the partdr said: it is original equipment factory-mounted by MB.

Just to close the loop. Bought the rear muffler by Eberspaecher from Fastlane. Delivered on-time for twelve bucks, installed with no hassles, fits perfectly, sounds fine. Highly recommend it for someone needing a stock replacement.

BTW - The muffler was OK. The noise was coming from a hole on the top side of the pipe at the bend just before it enters the muffler. Is this a common failure?
