I'm working on my newly acquired 300TD which has bad power problems at the low end. I'm optimistic.
Out of curiosity, how much HP does the 85 300TD have vice my 83 240D? Is the performance much more significant? Some of my carpool members are not amused by the 240D.
(I love the 240 since i rebuilt the engine/ac/interior, but can be scary in fast traffik and getting on the expressway.)
