RE: 2005 E320 CDI NIGHTMARE!!!
I have experienced this but only for a short time and for seconds. It only occurs when the throttle is barely on, such as coasting at low speeds. Since Katrina, I believe its the fuel quality since I have also noticed more knock at low RPM. It is fine now.
This can explain why two cars at the same dealer were doing it. Otherwise, a manufacturing defect in a part could do this, but European diesel is of much higher quality than in the US, so fuel related issues may be more likely.
