Good to see you're back, Chris. If you ever want to sell your E300, e-mail me I'm on my third diesel, and I'll bet yours is a sweeet car. Well detailed too, I trust.

Anyway, I'll vote for the M617 5 cylinder turbodiesel engine, and any of the cars MBZ put it into. It's a hard-to-beat car in the $5,000 range.

As an alternative to newer cars, I compare my experience of replacing shocks, etc. into my 14 year old SD to a friend putting a new engine for $3k + in a new Nissan Sentra.

I should post pics of my car, if anyone wants to see a brilliant silver 84 SD...I'll probably end up attaching questions to the pics.
