Thanks. I know that 93K is nothing at all. My dad had an 85 TD wagon that he sold about 2 and a half years ago with 210K. He currently owns an 85 300D with just over 127K. If there's one thing I love the most, that'll be MB Diesels'. I've been around them since my dad bought the wagon in 1987, when I was two. I've always like the body styling of the 123's and especially the coupes, so I had to get one for myself. I even got some extra rims for the car from the PO. In her garage she had a 99 E300 Turbo and was going to sell it when MB comes out with their new Diesel's in the US.

I also have a 300Cd. It is silver with blue interior, an '81 with 115K miles. I'll have to take a picture and post. It is in excellent condition. Everything works. I love the car.

Sorta like mine...

I have an 84 300CD, a lot like this one in the pic, but this one isn't mine. Mine's the same color, but this one's a euro version. I've got tinted windows, too, but other than that, it's the same car with 213k on the clock. I really should take some pictures of it, though.

85 down, sunroof playin' some forgotten song...oh, sorry...the darn thing leaks into the back floorboard when it rains...rubber around the windows has a gap about where the front and rear windows meet, but I digress...hey, I had a problem with the sunroof in the 83 300D and disassembled the control switch, cleaned it and it worked...imagine that, repairing a part instead of just replacing it...what will those Germans think of next?
...a man's gotta understand
his limitations...

I still need to get the pictures of my 300CD posted, I might get around to doing it sometime in the next few weeks. I just need to take some pictures in good lighting, all the ones I have right now are in bad lighting so it makes the car look bad.

mike riemann, I pulled my sunroof switch out and cleaned it, and it made my sunroof open better, but it won't close it anymore. You are lucky that you were able to get your sunroof to work again.

You know those sun roofs have a clutch in them and often when they do not close its because the clutch is slipping.. Just adjust it.. In the rear where you run it by hand.. screwdriver in the slot.. adjust the clutch with a wrench on the nut..
