This 1995 E300D is a Mercedes classic with
legendary style and bulletproof reliability. 1995 was the last year of the
nine-year run for the W124 chassis in the U.S. market, making this vehicle the
high-water mark for the refinement of the line. For many Mercedes diesel
enthusiasts, this particular model, along with the W124s that preceded it,
represent the perfect balance between the reliability of the old and refinement
of the new.
vehicle is performing to high standards. Steering, handling, acceleration,
braking, shifting, etc. are all performing well. It's really a joy to drive!
606 engine is really very impressive. Plenty of power. . .great around town,
but it really excels on the open road. Both the 606 engine and the 722
transmission have proved to be extremely reliable over the years (as I suspect
you already know if you're reading this ad). I know of one individual with this
car with over 400,000 miles and counting on the original transmission! Recent
transmission fluid and filter service confirms that the transmission is in good
condition. And while it's impossible to be certain, it's likely that many of
the miles are highway miles.
are in excellent condition with lots of tread remaining; rear tires are BRAND
exterior is in overall decent condition, though there are imperfections upon
close inspection. Visual impact from 10-15 feet is quite good. I think the pics
give an accurate representation.
frame and the body are rust free with the exception of the beginnings of rust
at the rear jack points (not visible with caps on, but this should probably be
addressed at some point). And there are two small holes in the rear wheel wells
that have been patched and had undercoat sprayed on.
front suspension was recently carefully inspected by my mechanic. He noted that
it's been well attended to, with many parts replaced. The only item to be
addressed is the right lower ball joint. While there is no movement, there is
mild intermittent squeaking. It should probably be replaced in the
interior (seats, dash, trim, etc.) is in very nice condition. The one exception
is the front part of the arm rest, which is worn away.
climate control works reasonably well. Heat is piping hot, variable fan speed
works as designed, the blower motor does not squeak, and the AC is ice cold.
However, there is a leak in the system (not diagnosed as of yet), so periodic
recharging is required. Also, the air flow at the vents does not seem to be as
strong as it should be, even after replacing the cabin filters.
is one glow plug that is not working, but the car starts without any
difficulty. There is a block heater, but I doubt that it would ever be needed
(some like to warm the block on cold mornings. . .I've never bothered).
original Becker audio system works great. And there is a CD changer mounted in
the trunk. A cassette adapter works well for iPod, smart phone, etc...

in RI, safety inspection valid through May 2015.
following items are not functioning as they should: (1) Left Rear Window (needs
a new regulator. . .the motor works); (2) Sunroof; (3) Exterior Temperature
Gauge. (4) Auxiliary Fans. The auxiliary fans are certainly not needed when the
AC is not running or when running the AC on the highway. Even in stop and go
traffic with the AC on, the temperature gauge says well within safe levels.
But, on a very hot day climbing a steep grade with the AC on you would probably
need the fans. Under most driving conditions, you can safely live without them.
New fans can be purchased for as little as $68 each; there are two of them.
REASON FOR SELLING
am I selling the car? What I like to do, in addition to the 91 300D and the 92
300D that I own, is to acquire and get acquainted with different Mercedes
diesels now and again. I had always wanted to own a 95 E300D but never had the
opportunity, so this became my latest "additional" car. I've enjoyed
learning about it and working on it, and especially DRIVING it, but now it's
time to pass it on to a more permanent owner so that I can search for my next
car. I have no particular need to sell the car and am very glad to enjoy it
until it does sell.
bottom line: this is a classic W124 diesel sedan, undoubtedly one of the best
cars Mercedes ever made, in good condition for a fair reserve price. (FYI NADA is
$4555, Kelly Blue Book is $4665).
attempted to provide a reasonably full description of the car, partly because I
want prospective buyers to be as informed as possible, and partly because I
despise Craigslist ads with no information. Feel free to call, text, or email
with any questions. I will answer promptly and to the best of my ability.

BMW opened a whole Pandora's Box when it introduced the X6 back in 2008. Sure it made little sense, sacrificing all that "utility" for a little more "sport," but it's been a solid success for BMW - especially considering the nominal expense it cost to develop the X6 on top of the X5 on which it's based. Little wonder that, while BMW has already followed up with a smaller version in the form of the X4, other automakers are starting to catch up. And that includes Mercedes-Benz.

The German automaker is preparing to launch a new MLC, based on the M-Class but with a sportier silhouette, and previewed it with the Concept Coupe SUV at the Beijing Motor Show. But that's just the start, according to the latest report from Automotive News Europe.
Mercedes is reportedly considering spinning off an entire line of crossovers more for use on the road than off it. Which may go without saying for most crossovers on the market, but considering the Geländwagen with which Mercedes got its start in SUVs, would mean an even further departure than it has undertaken already.
Another month, another car pack for Forza Horizon. This time it's the Recaro Car Pack featuring a motley gang of cars and trucks: the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500, 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV, 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR, 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition and 2012 Lotus Exige S.

It'll be up for download on Xbox Live on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 for 400 MS Points. As usual, if you have the Forza Horizon Season Pass you can get them all free, and Season Pass holders will also get a bonus car that's not pictured: the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.
The Pagani is everything opposite to that Vandura, but while you might not ever win anything with the van, you can always use the back of it as a place to give out free hugs. Check out the video and press release below for more details.
If we're being completely honest, we haven't exactly been in love with the aesthetics of the sixth-generation Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. It's mostly a front-end issue, with its glowering eagle-eye headlamps and upright, dinner-plate-sized Three-Pointed Star coming across to us as overwrought. That's particularly troublesome for a roadster whose history has of the most elegant designs of all time in its back catalog. Somehow, the new R231 generation's brash visuals seem more at home on this Brabus 800 Roadster to us.
That's probably because the high-dollar German tuner has turned up the wick on the SL's visuals even further, with carbon fiber bodywork, a more aggressive aero kit, matte hood scoop and complex two-finish wheels. It's all-the-way committed to its brashness, in other words - and justifiably so. Anything with 800 horsepower and 1,047 pound-feet of torque has earned the right to look however it wants, right?
Brabus started with the SL65 and its not-exactly-underpowered 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12, and went to town, fitting their own turbocharger and intercooler system, along with a less-restrictive exhaust system with driver-selectable sound levels and new engine electronics. The result is a 3.7-second 0-62 mph time, an electronically limited top whack of 217 mph... and one seriously compromised toupée.
