Is the 'Turbo' mentioned in the thread title mandatory or optional (I noticed how quickly the 123 240D crowd got booted)
I have an '84 300TD 5-speed, non-turbo. Am I still eligible?

Happy Motoring, Mark

My 300D has the transmission out of a 240D as well. According to EPC its the same transmission that was also in the 300D NA. StaggerLee you may join.

Let's take a vote. Should we include 300 NA's in the group?

Any 300D NA stick is a good car in my book. I still miss mine. 110mph, no turbo lag, body shot.
