Either I'm real slow on the draw, or this Autos/Mercedes section is new. To me anyway. I've got a 1985 300CD turbo coupe and a 2006 E320 CDI sedan. Anyone wanting to chat about these or similar Benz, jump in.....

I have a 2006 S 600 AMG. 5.5L V12 twin turbo. When you start the engine it sounds like a jet engine spooling. ....

It was a continuation of that pivot pin business that screwed the pooch for me

Your car is fine, in fact extra-fine. I'd love to be able to afford that kind of performance, but I'm in the process of buying a John Deere that's on the north side of $40K.

With the turbo diesel, I have to do with 0-60 times around 6.8 sec. My purchases lean toward the fuel economy end of the scale. It may not be a rocket ship, but I definitely like the 40 mpg.

This certainly wasn't the first time a thread's taken a proverbial 'left turn', but I fail to see how that is an issue, certainly not one that big.

I missed this thread the first time around.

I've got several Benz's too, an SL like Ace, an E sedan and an ML.

I had an older E sedan with that great little diesel at my place down south, but it got to the point where the insurance, license, etc. was costing more than what it would have cost me to just rent a car when I was down there. I sold it to my lawyer down there, he's still very happily driving it.


Best of luck. ....

I've got a 4th gen E-Class myself; a 1985 300CD Turbo coupe. It's in and out of semi-storage while I finish the restoration. I drive it periodically just to keep it somewhat limber, and to road test any work performed that is related to drivability. Insurance isn't bad though. I'm forced to buy full coverage, since anything less doesn't cover fire/theft/vandalism. And since it's a collectible (only 1291 '85 turbo coupes were manufactured), I'm paying extra for $12,000 worth of specified value classic car insurance. Even at that, we're only talking $380/year.
