I am looking for a 240D, 4 speed, in or around NJ to be used as my daily driver. I am trying real hard to find one, not having any luck though.

Talking there is a white 300D at Dirkes U Pull it on 322S

I believe its a EURO 300D with a nice white paint job, EURO would mean no AC, and 5speed , and no Turbo, just as good if not better than a 240D

The Euro 300D with its larger engine and 5 speed would be a much better option than the slower 240D and equally reliable, if not more.

one more thing.... why don't you try to find a 190D 5 speed instead ? I have driven both and can tell you that the 190D is 100000000 times better.

The best part is that the 190Ds get way better gas mileage than a 240.
