Just wanted to do a shout-out--the input from FI and the others on this thread is really helpful for getting a feel for the '80s-'90s diesel cars and their engines. Thanks.

I'm happy to see this tread still alive after almost ten years a lot has changed with me in that time. Looking back is amazing! Keep using the knowledge!

To All,

I just found a NAVY/TAN leather 1987 300D, with the W124 body, with 181,000 miles for 1,000.00 in good shape EXCEPT the PO's bird-dog ATE the 2 front seat's leather.

Can anyone tell me WHICH years/series M-B seats will interchange W/O "redesigning" everything??

yours, satx

Default Add bluetecs!

add bluetec diesels in the run away don't buy category. Extremely unreliable and extremely difficult to fix correctly. Do not ever buy a bluetec!!!

I only hope that mercedes does a buyback like VW did so I can get rid of mine!
