David, my accident case is not completely closed yet, so I am somewhat hesitant to post any details on such a public forum. Send me e-mail and I will gladly tell you what has happened and what I expect may happen.
Eventually when everything is finished I will make a public post.
In the meantime, I should mention that I got to keep my 300SD and I have a new 300D.
1976 300D (W115) - 330K and still going (sort of)
1991 300D 2.5 Turbo - Sold at 221K
1983 280SEL - Sold at 206K
