One doesn't need gifts to be happy.

I just walked out to the 300D and realized I am quite fortunate to have a car (unlike my brother who destroyed my honda almost a year ago).

There hasn't been a new car for him, but I got the garaged benz

I also want to wish all forum members and all who read this, a Merry Christmas.

Thank You to all that have helped me directly and indirectly. each day I read the forum is like opening up a new gift in some way. always something new to read and learn.

I hope I have passed on what I have learned here and what I have learned through doing in practice, have helped some one.

Merry Christmas

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
