Excellent choice. I just sold mine (too many cars..) but the car was a pleasure to drive, would give me 33-35 on the highway. Ample power etc. Records are key w/ these cars, you want to be sure that it has been run w/ the proper coolant and that it has been flushed every 2 years. The one weak point on these 5 cylinder's is head gaskets. With the proper coolant/flush it keeps everything in order.

95's are nice as they come w/ a VERY big fuel tank. Hard to find though.

Expect to pay a premium for a good diesel over the standard E320.

thanks
ive been looking around the forum and it looks like Im going to have to consider the maintanve cost to be a couple of thousand at least because i will be picking this out from an auction so I wont be able to get a clear history record of the vehicle at the auction, but I should be a ble to get it for 5-8k thts what the auction reports are suggesting, then i have to consider the maintanance as well.

Any advice on what I can look for when checking it out at the auction.
THanks
