Is there a special formulation of urea or will just any urea do?

And being a German made car wouldn't it be referred to as Die Urea?

Drink good German beer in order to synthesize and supply proper urea to the system.

Not a Bluetec, but got 38 mpg doing the speed limit (65) last night. You won't be disappointed.

I bet the Germans could design a really cool looking catheter for self-service urea fill-ups. Maybe it's just me, but I think I'd be a bit leery of anything like an automatic catheter, though.

I think Mengele already came up with one.

Most light duty car diesels top out the revolutions around 6k, but this one is said to only run to 4600rpm.
That's a very impessive 0-60 time from 211 hp in a heavy car. However, the rev limiter breaking up the party at 4600 rpm would take some getting used to.

My diesel wagon does 0-60 in 7secs, with approximately 200hp, but I can't quite top 28mpg at that level of performance.

I picked up my 2007 E-320 two weeks ago at the factory (in Stuttgart) and drove it around for a few days before having it shipped back to the US. The car accelerates so fast when driving in traffic that it's almost scary! MB rates the Bluetec at 388 ft-lb but others rate it at 400 ft-lb. That's a lot of torque for a 3900 lb car. Now, I'm just waiting for the ship to arrive!
