Yes I understood E280CDI only being available in Australia now. But how do you know that the E320 Bluetec actually has lower emissions compared to the E320 CDI with particulate filter? I did figure out the cars possibly having minor differences on the catalyst, perhaps ECU differently programmed, would like to see clear figures.
Then again, if you currently have E280 CDI, the E320 CDI would have similar emission levels (ppm figures), are you personally after the lowers possible or just after something that fulfils local regulations?
I am just assuming that the cars on the Australian market are more like the European models than the US models, from what I've learned from other equimpment. I would then assume the Euro model being more likely there than the US variants (what ever the difference).
I should try to search some documents for the real emission levels of these engines, would be interesting to see.
