Thanks, but as I am typing the VIN, I do not get the market choice as far as I can see. It automatically chooses this car. But thanks for letting me have the right part number. How did you find which one was right?

Looks like a glitch in the EPC. If you don't enter the VIN, but enter the 202.125 model designation instead, and select engine 44E - OM 605 Japan, then group 15, then group 105, you get the choice of a 910 02 engine on part number 5. The 3rd and 4th number 5 are for engine number 9168 and above - your engine is 12059, higher than 9167, and not on the +/- exception list. But if you enter the VIN you get the same 910 OM 605 Japan engine, but it doesn't offer the 910 02 engine choice. Very strange - glitch in the EPC is the only explanation I can think of. You might ask a dealer parts guy to run it.
