    About two weeks ago, I bought a Mercedes 190D 2,0 Cocoon. Can anyone provide me with more information about this 'Cocoon' thing ? The Cocoon is identified by a little oval symbol on the sides near the front wheelarch. I can send anyone more pics on demand... I hope you can tell me stuff about this edition because so far, no one can :) . Please let me know !

    Further the car has an electric sunroof, a 5 gear transmission, wood finish, airbag, and green metallic colour ... and maybe other stuff I don't know about :))

    To prevent confusion I must say that those logos are probably something originally from MB and not from an aftermarket company. Because I have seen one other 190er with the same logo on it. That one altough was stached with options ... Airco, Electric Windows, Creme-coloured leather interiour + woodfinish, ABS, 5 geared, electric sunroof and a 1,8 E - engine with 109 hp...

    I almost bought that one, but I didn't like the nose very much ... It had been hit by a car, and had been very poorly fixed... It looked more like a W123 than a 201 ;-)

    Hi.

    Yesterday i have upped the pics to my webspace:

    [​IMG]

    I think, that the logos are from a special car-equipement shop or from an company, who sells their own style, like the "house tuners" here in germany.
    or an special car tuner has orderes a many of the same cars, like a special edition....

    or from a company in the past, which has special cars for her employes.....

    i think, that is not an original logo.....


    regards

    Ok the tuning company-thing, I can understand ... the only thing that bothers me then, is that there is 'visually' nothing 'tuned' about the car except for that simple logo.

    Otherwise the 'company' reason I could agree to, if it weren't for the different engines on the 'cocoons'. I have a 2,0 Diesel, I've sat in the cocoon with the 1,8 E engine, and now I've seen another one in an add, in the newspaper, with a 2,5 turbodiesel. I don't find it very likely that one company would buy company cars with at least 3 different engine types ...

    I'm going to check with my local dealer if he knows anything about it, or grab hold of the MB vehicle history .

    Thanks for the hints and I'll defenitly keep you posted !!

    Ok, here is an update on the 'Cocoon' - thing ...

    The Cocoon tag was used on some cars on the end of 92 and the begin of 93 ... That means you can find that on the W201 and on the W124 . :]

    It is without a doubt something original from MB, altough my local dealer did not know whether it is something that was launched in Belgium alone or not ...

    The specialities on the car are that the cocoon is finished in wood ... and that's it. Special is also the wooden gearshifter.

    If anyone knows even more ... pleeze inform me ... :D

    The cocoon is the very last version of the W201-series, it was launched in the last weeks of W201 -production. A local guy here in antwerp could tell me this when I brought in the car for repairs ... He also brought to my attention that the cocoon-logo is also on the windows with 'a' number (mine's 268)

    It is normally supposed to be stached with options, but it seems mine isn't ... The car should have come with electric windows, leather interior, airco ... It seems the person that originally bought my car, didn't want those ;(

    Anyway, mystery solved ! So where are all you final-version cocoon-drivers ? :D
