300E Diesel Air Filter

I have a 1996 300E Diesel that needs a new air filter. I contacted K&N directly to make sure I purchase the correct part and was told that K&N doesn't make a filter that fits my model.

Any suggestions as to what brand I should replace it with?

You're lucky there's no K&N--they are crap.

Get an OE filter.

There is no such thing as a 96 300E diesel. You have an E300D.

Agreeing with the others here. There has been a lot of discussion about K&N and the concensus seems to be to not use them. But just for kicks, and since you have a W124, try a search on that model-specific forum to see what those owners say.
