You guys were RIGHT!
I told you how I recently bought a 86 420 SEL, and you told me to get the timming chain looked at. Before I could even pick it up the, owner starts the engine and BAM, timming chain broke. Well to make a long story short, the owner fixed the chain and I sold the car to a friend for the amount I bought it for.
Now I want to buy a 87 300D! I love those cars and I really want a diesle. What can you 300D drivers tell me about these puppies? I've seen some for sale with 250K, and they say nothing has been replaced. Then I see some with 150K and the engine has been rebuilt. Whats up with these things, seems they either run for ever or you get a lemon. Thanks in advance.
