A questions I can't seem to find an answer to

Dumb question here that's nearly irrelevant. How fast is the diesel R-class? No one seems to have posted a 0-60 time anywhere. The GL diesel is supposed to be somewhere south of 8 seconds, and I assume the R is the same considering it's a very similar weight?

As I said, it's a pretty irrelevant question considering the class of vehicle isn't made to be particularly fast nor should it, I just want to know because I don't know...

The 320CDI is faster than 9.4, believe that it is 8.4 - 8.5sec, but I have newer timed it.
In 2008, Mercedes site posted 0-60 for R350 is 8.0 second and 8.3 second for R320 CDI.

Found this online:

Mercedes-Benz R-Class 0 to 60 mph Times & Quarter Mile Times

2006 Mercedes R350 0-60 mph 8.1

2007 Mercedes R63 AMG 0-60 mph 4.5

2011 Mercedes R350 BlueTec 4MATIC 0-60 mph 8.4 Quarter Mile 16.3

2011 Mercedes R350 0-60 mph 7.9

Thanks for the info people! I was very curious because at first I was finding only what shingleback found and it didn't make sense.

Where is the factory sub-woofer located? Upgradding it would be nice, though I'm not usually one to mess with a factory system, especially a amped factory system. Though, I do really miss a good sub... Has anyone found a clean install point that doesn't get in the way much?
It mounted below the cover of the spare tire area.
