My cousin has a 1994 BMW 5 series with a 2.5 liter (I think that was correct) diesel in it. Stick shift, no A/C, and the rear windows are crank operated! Many of the MB’s I saw had engines that are not available here in the States. Lots of E classes with 2.0 liter engines.
There will more than likely be speed limits in Germany soon. [:(]

It’s unfortunate that European car makers fail to understand that there are many European car enthusiasts in the US of A. Not only are we interested in BMWs, Porsches, and MBs, but the way European cars are packaged – I think I speak for most on this forum when I say we would like to see more European cars with sticks and fewer gadgets available in the US; I know I’d be a potential customer.
I think there should be a general speed limit in Germany - maybe 140kmh. Going much faster than that is only feasible for short periods of time because truck traffic is cruising at 85kmh. Going 200kmh for 1km is just not worth effort.
As far as MB in Germany is concerned, they are a major truck/bus/van/taxi company. DaimlerCrystler sells their MB Sprinter Van under Freightliner in the US in order to preserve the MB image of a luxury car brand.
