oh, i guess dt is for turbo diesel. i could have sworn td is for turbodiesel, at least in the us. on newer wagons, it has no extra letter after the model insignia.

"T" is for the body style:Touring/station wagon.Case in point:early 300TDs were diesel station wagons without turbos.(Can you say SLOW?).MBZ 123 chassis Turbodiesel sedans and coupes were SD or CD...Newer E-class wagons are designated TE.The only stock badging I've ever seen alluding to forced induction is the current "Kompressor" emblem.This may not be true in other markets,so don't take it as gospel.
