300SD Pictures

Just got my SD a bath so I thought I'd post up some pictures of her. Purists and those with dial up might not want to proceed. Flame suit on!




















And a video for those curious about the stack...

Um.....that is horrifying. Moment of silence for that car.

If it don't blow black take it back? Is that supposed to mean that an improperly running diesel is ideal?

Nice exhaust design, is it supposed to allow as much snow and rain down into the turbo as possible?

Your quote on the rear window would imply that black exhaust is ideal....

No.

Clean burning diesel exhaust is ideal.

Aka, no visible smoke.

I am impressed. It gives 'custom' car a complete different meaning. Sorry for the passenger 'point of view'. I would imagine it would be illegal to do this with RHD car.

You traded your part exhaust and muffler for the speakers?

Haha not so much. It all goes over the car and in all honesty is not that loud while driving.

I can fit my 14mm ratcheting wrench right down in there and loosen the clamp and the stack just slides off. Takes about 45 seconds.

Opening it is easy.

It won't be driven this winter because I will be at school.
