Hey gang, was talking to a MB tech about our 300SD when the C280 was mentioned. A silence resulted and then he proceeded to share with me no specifics but rather generalities that the 104 engine was the shortest production run engine due to having to many problems. Then he recommended the 103 eng.up to 93' or the 95 on up V-6. So far I'm happy with the C280 (94) she flat out gets up to 125 easy and sips fuel at about 24.5 @ 75/85 on I-10 to Austin, so this kid is sat. B-u-t that seed of doubt has been planted and would appreciate valued opinions.
Best regards to all, Leon H.
