BTW, why does carfax also show this: "1992 MERCEDES-BENZ 300CE WDBEA51E0NB584761 COUPE 3.0L L6 FI".... Huh? Not a 3.2L 24-valve? Engine pics would prove it otherwise though.
Strange comments I've not seen before concerning coupes, their engines and markings... In reference to the carfax noted above, it's just a system prone to human error as anything else, the only thing it's missing is the 24V part, but the 3.0L is correct.
Also a couple of comments from two posters concerning 3.2L and an a "possible" missing badge that should say 300CE 24V.
3.2L 24V is not
motor, thats been documented everywhere.
1990 thru 1992 is 3.0L 24V in the CE's, (from the E-Class Owners Bible)
1993 introduced the 3.2L 24V in US, (from the E-Class Owners Bible), elsewhere I have no idea
I am rather new to all this, but still, I've read a lot already and I've not seen a US version 1992 coupe with a 103 motor anywhere. Every advertisement and picture for a 1992 CE is a 3.0L 24V only. If there are any 92 CE's with a 103 motor, their owners must have realized how rare they are, because I've never seen a 92 300CE with a 103 advertised anywhere.
I own a 92 300CE, it is a 3.0L 24V, and the badge on the trunk says "300CE", just like every other 92 CE advertizement I've seen. Is is possible that non-US versions have this "300CE 24V" marking?
How about this possibility, since 1990 was the first year of the 3.0L 24V in the CE's, could that be the year when they also still put 103 motors in them? The E-Class bible says nothing about a 103 motor being standard and 104 being optional for CE's, by the way, this poster is the first person to make this statement. I wonder if he's confusing motor options in the sedans for different years?
