Seen a few knocking around; had a 300TDI in the past and not a patch on the drive of my 50th V8 Auto; but should these be recognised for being a rare machine - OR are they just a standard station wagon sold with some dealer add ons and not the unique build of a factory V8 Auto; that happened to be sold during 1998?

A massive write up around the 50th TDI in the below eBay add.

Looks to be in good condition for age...

Thoughts on it being almost a 50th?

I think the market has already voted on that question really. Their value is pretty much the same as the equivalent age/ condition CSW with no real premium for their "status" as limited edition.

I think the problem with them is there is nothing special over and above a standard CSW to differentiate them from the standard cars, so why would anyone pay a premium. If they had more power/ no bulkhead/ leather interior/ etc. or some other significant differences then they might attract premium money, but as they don't then I would see them as a nice/ desirable variant of the 300TDI but not worth any significant premium
