Smile Please welcome the newsest member of my family

Its a 1990 350SDL, 91,000Mi, runs really strong no leaks. I've already replaced the filters, fluids, rear subframe bushings and lower ball joints.

I'll ask the obligatory question: what shape is the engine in? Any work done on it?

Thanks, I wasn't too sure about the colour at first but after I put the rims on It all ties in very well.

So far its been driven just under 4000mi and when I changed the oil for the second time it was low by less then half a quart, the compression is excellent. I bought this with the worst in mind and I do have a spare 3.0 603 engine so if the worst happens I'll be ready.

I now understand what so great about the 350SDL, it really is a step up from the 300SDL as far as power & smoothness... So I understand.
