Go for the rebuit tranny

Justin, at different times when I was on a student budget I maintained a 1997 Truimph TR7 & a BMW 320i and I could kick myself for some of the corners I cut to "just get by". If you are going to keep your MB for the long haul, by all means go for the rebuilt trans and do it yourself to save some $ and besides no one will make sure that all of the little things are done right like you, after all you have to take to old one out to replace the seal anyway. Just replacing the seal is a lot of work to do and still be left wondering how long the trans is going to hold up. Put Amsoil ATF (or Redline) in the rebuilt trans, and know that your going to have a reliable MB for years to come.
