Thanks for interested. The diesel conversion had been completed by MB Mechanic that spend over 400 hrs. This was a 100% conversion, not cheaply done just engine and transmission, but she had been done all down to the component levels, control systems and hardwares and all related components from bumper to bumper that made this diesel wagon exactly as it designed by MB for European model 1995 w124 wagon/Estate.
In US model 1987 was the last import diesel wagon with OM603 engine. OM606 engine was introduced for Mercedes w124 and w210 diesel up to 1997, and then it changed back to turbo after 1999. The 1987 diesel was famous for leaking head gasket, then OM606 non -turbo was the improvement of OM603, this engine has zero rust and low mileage non-turbo engines (<130,000 miles). This California car is absolutely beautiful no rusts had passed all referee strict examined and safety inspections and would pass all inspections of all states in continental US and overseas without any doubts. The senior Mercedes experts and mechanics had agreed this is a complete and done as it suppose to be and an excellent car. You wouldn’t see another nice wagon E300D like this. The production tag for this chassis was Oct /95. This was the last group w124 wagon came out of production line.
It has light Base exterior with palomino MB-Tex interior. Straight 6-Cylinders, 3.0 liters, diesel non turbo, dual overhead cam, 4-speed automatic transmission, power assisted ABS 4-wheel disc brakes, 4-wheel independent suspension, power sunroof, A/C and heat climate control, power windows, central locking, power steering, cruise control, original Becker AM/FM stereo with power antenna, electrically heated rear windshield, quartz chronometer, 8-ways adjustable front bucket seats, front and rear center folding arm rest, halogen head lamps, halogen fog lamps, 2-speed windshield wiper, zebrano wood dash trim. There are a few minor rock chips and scratches, a small dents at driver side rear corner near the bumper, and the overall very presentable for daily driver or show room. The polished aluminum trims and chromes are in excellent condition. Both the front and rear bumpers are in original good condition, has some minor scratches. New Michelin tires. The grill is good condition. Original factory glass has minor stone chip. The car had never been driven on salted roads, so the under carriage looks as new, no rust.
The interior is shown of normal wear, but cushions and springs are in good condition, no broken springs or damage seats. All of the accessory switches, knobs, and buttons are in excellent condition.
None Smogs required for this wagon or diesel cars weight less than 7500 lb in US for model 1997 and earlier.

The case of Dupont and Honeywell's refrigerant R-1234yf is doing the exact opposite of keeping things cool. The two chemical companies have spent years and hundreds of millions of dollars developing R-1234yf to replace R-134a, the new refrigerant shown to be 99.7-percent kinder to the environment than the one it is meant to succeed. Part of that development has been years of testing by governments, outside safety agencies and automakers to approve the chemical for use in cars. It passed the protocols necessary for the European Union to declare that new and significantly revised cars from 2013 onward needed to use R-1234yf, and mandated that every car as of 2017 must use it.
Enter Daimler AG. The automaker created a head-on collision test with a B-Class at their Sindelfingen test track that would lead to the pressurized refrigerant being sprayed on the engine. The result in 20 out of 20 test was that the refrigerant burst into flames as soon as it hit the hot engine, while Daimler says that R-134a does not catch fire in the same test. Another unexpected result of the R-1234yf test was the release of hydrogen flouride, a chemical far more deadly to humans than hydrogen cyanide, emitted in such amounts that it that turned the windshield white as it began to eat into the glass.
Said a Daimler engineer in a Reuters piece, "It was scarcely believable. The most complicated lab tests conducted using the most sensitive measuring instruments around found nothing and all we do is drive a car around a couple of times, open a tiny hole in the refrigerant line and the next thing you know the car is on fire." So Daimler said it wouldn't use the refrigerant, and it recalled the cars it had already shipped with R-1234yf.
It's been more than a year since we first saw the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show, but it looks like the compact diesel crossover is finally starting to roll into dealerships. Those wanting to buy a diesel GLK will only have to pony up an extra $1,500 over a base, gas-powered GLK350, as the GLK250's starting price is listed at $38,590 (*not including $905 destination charge).
The turbocharged 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel produces 200 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, and Mercedes-Benz has also provided some fuel economy numbers for this model, with claimed EPA estimates of 24 miles per gallon city and 33 mpg highway. There is no listing for the GLK250 on the EPA's website yet, but the figures represent significant increase over the GLK350's lackluster 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway figures, which are for the rear-wheel drive model. The GLK250 comes standard with the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system - a $2,000 option on GLK350 - meaning that if you want an all-wheel-drive version of the 2013 GLK, it's actually cheaper to opt for the diesel model. Head over to the Mercedes-Benz site for the full 2013 GLK-Class configurator.
The argument is made in a Reuters article: Audi is falling behind other luxury brands, such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW, due to a lack of research-and-development spending and "brain drain," or the migration of top executives and R&D chiefs to other parts of the Volkswagen Group. Reuters notes that Audi's current R&D chief is the third in 16 months.
Audi, which contributed to 40 percent of VW Group's $11.6 billion in profit the first nine months of the year, is delivering cars at a record pace: 1.31 million were delivered from January to October 2013 versus BMW's 1.35 million. Yet Audi, Reuters reports, doesn't have a halo car akin to BMW's new electrified i3 and i8 or an answer to Mercedes' plug-in-hybrid S-Class, and the R&D spending at Audi is less than BMW and Mercedes by a fair margin. It's noted in the article, however, that Audi benefits from other R&D spending within VW Group.
Reuters mentions that BMW "trumpets its new 'i' series" and the new Mercedes CLA and GLA ranges are winning "rave reviews" as part of its argument that Audi's recent lack of technological innovation could hurt future sales. Those cars do pack tons of new technology, some of which are firsts for mainstream production cars. But last time we checked, the i3 could be causing BMW's stock to slide, the CLA isn't receiving the rave reviews that Reuters would have you believe and the GLA hasn't been reviewed yet.
