In addition to this, didn't Mercedes have an I-5 diesel, the 300D?

BTW, a friend and I test drove the 850 turbo Volvo a few weeks ago, its a 
pretty nice car with good acceleration. Had the side impact air bag built 
into the seats. They only come in automatics here in the US. Sticker was 
just under $35k.
