Hello! Just registered. We have a 2006 E320 CDI. We live in CA & bought this car in Feb '07 with 8300 miles on it. It was originaly sold in AZ. Preimum 1&2 packages. This is my wife's car and she loves it. I must confess I bought it only for the diesel engine. However, I do love the feel of this car on the open road. We drive a lot (We now have 70+K miles on it). Only normal A&B services plus brakes, tires. Everyday driving returns 35-37MPG and 42-43 on a long drive is common. And that's at 80MPH. I am looking for a 83-85 W123 wagon or sedan (prefer the wagon) that is clean & low miles. Hoping to find one in the 6 months or so. Diesel is the only way to go for me.

Post Brakes & Shocks


We now have 100K on this car and it runs like a locomotive. On the hiway it returns 42-43MPG at 80-85 MPH and 35-27 in mixed traffic. I need to repleace the shocks and wonder what others have used. Bilsteins? Boge? I'd like to keep the ride about the same.

Also, has any of you change the brake pads & rotors yourself? It looks to be like any other type of brake system but...
