Question E-class Diesel W211

Refering to my previous request locating a E 320 CDI in America.

Is it at all possible to find CDI's in America?????

I've surfed some more, around the net, and it seems only to be the newer cars 2007-08 that have diesel. None from 2003 -

Is this right? - It's a fact that no E-Class CDI from 2003 are available in the United States?

The U.S. got the E320 CDI from 2005-2006/7(?). 2007+ is called the E320 Bluetec.

I have seen modern diesels for sale. Rare, but that is just due to low demand at the time. You simply have to search around and be patient.
[edit] maybe I'm wrong and they aren't that rare. There are a bunch for sale in my local area. boston craigslist > for sale / wanted: search for "mercedes"
None of these are from 2003, however - they are the previous body style.

Mercedes did not sell diesel cars in the USA from 1999 through 2004.

I'm sure Kent is correct, he usually is. I heard the reason for this is because our diesel fuel was inferior and it was gumming up the Mercedes diesel fuel systems. That is just a rumor though, I have never researched it or seen it from a reputable source.

They were sold for the 99 model year. You can get a 99 E300. They were not sold between 2000-2004. 2005 was the first model year for the E320 CDI in the US.

Makes more sense, i.e. no diesels in "facelift" W210 for USA.
