Another 200D in NorCal, a 5 spd!

I hate being poor. I would love this car. I wonder what kind of mileage it gets.

I'd imagine the fuel economy below 55mph is excellent. But a 2.0L OM601 behind a W124... that thing has to work HARD to merge or go 75mph and I'll be the MPG falls off substantially.

There is a 200D sedan around me, I never see it parked though, been meaning to leave a note on it.

I think the leather on such a basic manual trans car is obscure.
