There wasn't ever a E440 model produced for the W124 chassis. Is the engine in this car an inline 6, V8 or V6?

You see I really don’t know that much about the car but it is a V8 & it’s model designation includes the words Avant Garde E440 I’m just trying to figure it out also not even sure if that’s the VIN

Using this vin can you say for sure which chassis designation this vehicle is? VIN WBD2100721A209603

registration says its a 2003 but even as a E430 it does show in the 2003MY string more like a 2002 E430 but no where can I find a 2003 E440 Avant Garde

again, its an E420, not E430 or E440... ... Model 210.072 from your VIN, with engine 119.980 (4.2L DOHC V8) No data card on file with Mercedes. 'avante garde' is just an interior trim/color package.

per the mercedes parts catalog, a engine 119.980 use 'coil over' ignition, each spark plug has its own coil. there are M119 4.2L V8's that have 2 4-way distributors each with its own coil, but the XENTRY Parts Information system says yours is coil-over. 8 separate coils, PN A0001587203, each with a 'cable connector' A0001594142 between the coil and the plug, and held in place with bracket A1191580740

btw, due to sufficient confusion with the M119 engines having two ignition configurations, you should have someone check to see if it has the 2 distributors, and if so then it would have two separate coils, whereass if it doesn't have any distributors, then it has the 8 coil-over-spark ignition ...
