94 C280 is a road rocket! Fun car to drive, but my sister-in-law passed on it, they bought an 86 300SDL instead.

Go for the head gasket -- I think you want the Elring one (there are several versions, get the latest one, they are better).

Try to stay within 10 mph of the speed limit, especially if it is red.....

1987 300D Turbo killed 9/25/07, 275,000 miles
1985 Volvo 740 GLE Turobodiesel 218,000
1972 280 SE 4.5 165, 000 - It runs!

Relax man, I know your friend and he does good work. If you want a second opinion before he does it, lemme know.

I tell folks all the time, let us worry about the car, thats our job.

Thanks Joe.

I apologize for being so sensitive about this, but please understand I've been hosed a lot in the past, so I have trust issues that will need time --and persistent quality service from a service company-- to heal.

It's like telling a battered woman to suddenly trust all men.
