There is no better feeling than dieseling around town in my speedy 1982 300D Turbo. I'm 17 and this is my first car. I'd say the W123 300D turbos are a great first car. Safe and solid. The play in the steering wheel can be a a problem, and I always make sure I have BOTH hands on the wheel, otherwise the car might wander in the lane. To remedy this, the steering box can be tightened for a temporary fix, but the "real" way to fix it is to replace the steering box (US$500 is the best price i've found). Lack of anti lock brakes may be a concern too. Fortunately I've learned to pump my brakes pretty well....
