See signature.

BTW - what exactly do you have in your exhaust now? One muffler or two? Was there any power difference compared to stock, and how does it sound? I've been wanting to remove the catalyst and center muffler, and just have the rear muffler...

'86 300SDL. Still being restored and had never driven it.

It's got 312k on it and the body is in great shape, the interior however is a little worn.

I bought a complete replacement carpet set from World Upholstry, front and rear seats and door panels from a '91 560SEL, Bosch euro lights with wipers and motors, and I've rebuilt the transmission.

Now I just have to get that engine rebuilt!

OhioSDL,

And grouping by ENGINE, you know that big heavy thing under the hood that converts heat energy to mechanical energy, would be even better.

'87 300 SDL, 167k miles mint condition, maroon in and out, and of course a six-zero-three engine.

My sig pretty much says it all, but the mileage is up to 242,500. I really like the 603 it sounds very nice over 4k rpm.

87 300D 603.960, 211,000 miles and counting. Uses less than a quart of oil on 6000 mile change intervals (Mobil 1 or Delvac 1). Has Euro (DEPO) headlights after an encounter with a deer last winter.

My brother has an 86 SDL, something like 200,000 miles on it. No oil consumption between changes, just ate an alternator and battery (checking on the glow plug relay to make sure it's not staying on).
