On the whole it is more likely not to see a sunroof on a four cylinder engined vehicle - but that isn't "a rule"

Ya we have 240D`s here with a Sun Roof. My Bro in Law`s 82 has one.

I actually think a SR will be enough drag to slow down a 240 LOL.
Automatics don`t help either, I can walk away from him with our 80 4-spd.
Us 372K and he with 146K miles.

Today is not a SR day with the rain pouring down, can you believe rain here in Calif. ???
Guess the drought is over now.

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

I have an 83 240D and was delighted to know that it had a sun roof when I bought it. But sun roof cars should be garaged. That does prevent a lot of problems. When I did the engine switch and at that time we had three cars, it did sit out for a couple of months and got plenty of rain. No leaks! Very happy about that, but now it is inside all of the time and I just leave the sunroof open all summer. I just love it. As soon as it gets cool I close it up and leave it that way till next summer. I also have the dark plastic "windshield" on it and that eliminates the air blasting in. Very nice.
