1985 Mercedes Benz 300SD -4F Cold Start
1985 Mercedes Benz 300SD turbo Diesel 5 cylinder starting after an overnight cold soak at -4F. About 5 degrees above 0 at the time of the video. Took a couple of glow plug cycles but it started.
On straight #2 Diesel Fuel with no additives (like my other cold start videos) Doesn't start as well as my 240D but still a very strong runner.
Mercedes-Benz 300 SD 0-60 MPH Movie.wmv
A brief selection of videos demonstrating the acceleration capabilities of a stock 617.950 engine with nothing more than proper tuning and adjustments. The engine is internally stock and features an '05' camshaft advanced 4° and injection pump timing advanced 2° from specification respectively. The stock T-3 turbo produces 14.7 psi of Boost @ 5100 rpm. The injection pump is stock and no adjustments have been made to the rack limiter or full load stop. The ALDA set screw has been backed all the way out CCW. I hope you enjoy this short video....
Ridiculous Autocross Run In A Mercedes 6.3
The course was set up for the Rocky Mountain Fiat Club autocross, but later in the day I brought out the 6.3 for a few exhibition runs. The power steering didn't want to respond to the quick left-right-left-left section in the beginning, but it was a load of fun on the other end. Forgive the Dukes of Hazzard treatment at the end, but it had to be done, and it was a crowd favorite.

My 1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD
A wonderful chapter in the history of the automobile. My personal delight, a 1980 W116. A car I hope will run for ever, just like the Koschel's Mercedes. I recently got my first High Mileage award, and hope to get the remaining awards as well. Being a very satisfied fourth time Mercedes owner, I must say its true- Once youve followed the star, you never go back.
2013 Range Rover vs. 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! - Head 2 Head Episode 32
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 Range Rover against the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. Several technical & challenging obstacles await as these two SUVs navigate a purpose-built off road course. Did we mention that the course also happens to be the testing grounds for Motor Trend's SUV of the Year? Old school meets new school as tried & true German engineering squares off against cutting edge British gadgetry.
Of course, no comparison between these two status symbols would be complete without a visit to their natural habitat... the mean streets of Beverly Hills, CA. While both of these contenders will get you through the dirt in style, which of these two uber-luxury six figure SUVs is most befitting of high society? Join us as we find out.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

Won't rev past 1000 RPM. Really hard to get started. It's an OM617.952 that has been transplanted from a station wagon.
