I'm in total agreement.

I've driven a few of 90's SD's when my Dad was searching for one. The level of refinement (as far acceleration,smoke and smoothness, etc) was almost "undiesel like" (I do mean that as a complement)....

If the fuel filters have not been replaced annually, this would be a probable cause. Especially since you stated that in addition to being sluggish, it runs poorly.

I tried the Mechanix brand gloves this weekend when I replaced the calipers on the 240d. They really do protect your hands from minor scrapes & cuts. I got mine from Advance Auto for $18.00.
