Where ya usin' the cruise control? I got good mileage with the cruise on at 70mph. Like 33-34mpg at that speed. City is in the mid 20's. Is that what you are getting too around town?

I got a link for my car pictures on the mbnz.org website They show up much better than my scrunched up ones. View the website on the link provided. I also used the link for my homepage under the profile.

Daimler300CD- Nice color! I've never seen a diesel in Pearl Black. Did it come that way, or did you have it painted?

DCraig-
The car came this color. I purchased it in Oct. '02, so no time for a repaint. It's a really great color except that the paint is oxidizing/fading on the hood and roof down the center. The color is what sold it seeing how I've never seen any of these around. I just got the windows tinted too. I'll get a photo taken tomorrow and post it on the site. I know the color is original too, because I have the original window sticker stating it's pearl black.
Thanks for your liking of the car.

-Jamie

Original California car. Has never seen a winter yet. Going to keep it that way. Stored before the first hint of snow. Can't wait to upgrade the wheels on this beast. Ready to click 300,000

I'm about to rebuild the motor and replace the seats and carpeting on the SDL. It's got ~316,000 miles on it and I hope to use it to replace the 190D as my daily driver for te next 15-20 years. Wish me luck.
