2x E350 CDI Sport W212s... for a bit
Curious to see the highest miles / life expectancy of OM642 engines. I know there are lots of OM651 taxis with 400k miles on in Europe, but how about the 350/320?

Mine’s a 59 plate W212 E350 on 165k, oil cooler/seals done at 102.5k. It’s the 231bhp variant running a Brabus D6III so 272bhp / 590NM.

Currently running very well (feels like I’m tempting fate!)

How about you?

Plenty of moon mileage om642 engined ambulances for sale on ebay.

426.000 miles on this one...

 
Cool to know! Still interested in what member's on here are running though. I'm winning so far :)
 
That's around 445,000 miles....impressive!
Yeah, it’s been a taxi for most of its life. Picked it up a bit ago to drive the family around. Lots of room being a 9passenger van.

I have 2011 sprinter 319 with an om642. Currently 718000km and still going strong. Original engine and 5G transmission. The key is oil changes.
Thanks great. Kindly inform oil type u are using.
