I have just purchased my 03 plate W211 EClass. I love it. However when I purchased it I checked it out with my mate who works at Mercedes Dealer. He said all history checked out ok but it was showing as a non standard UK car. All spec checked out ok but he said it appeared as though it could have been made special order for either forces, military or government or some dignitory. I thought nothing of it but having just parked it next to another e class of same year. Its actually longer by about 30-50 cm. The back doors appear longer and the boot is deeper. Has anybody heard of or seen anything like this?

A photo would be good.

Stretches are not uncommon...in certain professions.

Yes a side on photo will ensure you get a quick answer but I think you already know anyway.

They quite often make a LWB version of mid size cars for the Far Eastern market - Hong Kong etc. not sure if they made a W211 for this though.
