Hi everybody!

As a G-Owner this is not my usual board, but I hope you guys might answer my question.

A Friend of mine is looking for a G, and somebody have offered him a G320 with a manual transmission .... but the G320 had never been offered with these transmissions!
Now I was wondering if the engine and transmission might came from a 320 Sedan ... had the E320 (or C320) ever been offered with a manual transmission!?

Thx, Arnd!

Sounds like you need to ask the W124 board....

as far as i remember the only car that had 3.2
engine mated with manual transmission was (is)
SLK320. This applies only to newer 320's,
engine of 112 series (V6).

Mike, I'm not sure if you are referring to US cars, but since you have an E50, maybe you are not. I think there were some M104 engined cars with manual transmission... definitely the SL320 (R129).

Hi Arnd (good seeing you over here), I am pretty sure there was an E320 with manual transmission in Europe. I am positive there was an E300 with it.

Re: Re: Re: E320 transmission question

Yeah, i'm all-euro, you guessed:)
I've refreshed my memory a bit and found that
actually that they lately put 3.2 V6 into Sportcoupe
and it is available with man. trans by default.
Of course there was a bunch of older generation
cars with M104 that they had manual trans either
as option or standard. I've seen even W140 with
manual transmission and 2.8 engine. Man that hurts.;)
we'll get a ban on this forum soon, so let's end
or move somewhere else:)
