I am still hanging by a thread. In an inspection under the car I noticed that the aft most rubber coupling ( guibo in BMW speak) at the differential is cracked and stretched. Just lucky I was not cranking down the highway when it decides to let loose. I will update.

I've been lurking around since this thread started and I would love to give a 'definite', but unfortunately, it's only a 'maybe'. Make that a 'very likely'... and I'll bring my son, my wife, and the SDL. Although... you say VW's are OK... uhm... let's see how I feel that day... Please PM me directions.

Looks like there's other VW's coming and I am debating whether to drive the VW EcoDiesel or the 83 300D turbo. The Eco gets around 45 mpg and the 300DT about 27. Even though the fuel is "free" I burn less with the VW so it is tempting. I'll probably make a last minute decision.

On another note, does anyone have a gray W123 passenger front fender in good condition? Mine has a dent from a deer strike and badly rusted on the bottom and too much work to repair.

a different diesel ???

Chad.

Would there be room for a BIG ass diesel truck at your GTG? I'm thinking about it because how could I pass up seeing you, Coda, and Tyler plus meeting all these fine MB people?

If it won't fit in my driveway, there are two other places you could park within walking distance. 1st is a culdesac right behind my property and second is my neighbor's driveway. She has a 450 SEL and will be here so she said I can use her drive for overflow if needed.

Darn Again, I finished getting the car 300SD ready this a.m. and then got a call from work that will tie up Saturday. Make sure there are lots of photos to post.

I've finally decided which car to bring. I just hope Chad's new driveway can handle it.

OK, I'm booked in Fredericksburg on Friday night and in Morgantown for Saturday night so I suppose that means I'll be there!

Let me know what I can bring. Food, drink, injection pump parts, turbo's, superchargers, 7mm pump elements, show and tell?
