I agree. I need to add one.

Thanks again for all the comments. Maybe the color will grow on me. It has a little already thanks to the welcome received here. I have read many shaking threads, so I think I know what to tackle first. Just a tiny bit of throttle smooths it out, but the idle adjust seems to do nothing. I thought this was only used for starting, so maybe I'll look elsewhere. I'm going to start a new thread on which car to sell, but I'm afraid it might be this one...we'll see. Thanks again all.

Looks exactly like mine, but they upgraded some wood parts for the ashtray and area by the AT selector.

80K? Nice.

I would sell the 300SD. use the money to fix up the little mechanical stuff on your 240D, and get it a glossy black paint job

Did I mis-read, or is the oil in the car really 6 years old?

Regardless of the miles, you might want to think about changing it out if it has been oxidizing that long.

Nice find for $1k!
