Looked at the engine bay today for the first time since we bought out brand new GLE 250d amg-line.
Does it have one large and one small turbo?
Looked up the internet, can't tell s little info re the face-lift model.

As you can see finished in silver with black detailing. One wheel has 2 small chips where the paint has come away, all others are very clean. Come with original centre caps, I will source some bolts...
As per thread title. The engine in my car with 'Engineered by Mercedes-Benz' emblazoned upon it has been consuming oil at the rate of 0.5-0.7 litres / 500 miles for a while now and the suspicion has been it's gone the way of all smart Suprexes and is allowing it past the rings to burn. At this...
After e v e n t u a l l y managing to sell Mrs AMG's ML270 she is currently spending hour after hour on the interweb searching for a replacement. The ML was an unusual choice for her, but that was what she wanted so who was I to argue.

He says: '4 Lorinser Turbine wheels, one with slight kerb rash. Could do with a bit of a clean/polish but otherwise good. Fitted with 4 Vredestein 235/45 17s, all have reasonable tread.
PCD is 5x112 (Mercedes) but they've been on my VW T25. Very good...
I'm now after a W124 3.0 turbo diesel. Can anyone tell me what years/how I can tell? None of the 300D/E300D mention turbos in the adverts, Parkers indicate that ALL 3.0 litre W124's were turbo, those before about 1993 being lower power (no intercooler?) and the later 'E300D' badged ones...
