I can't tell from the picture but I'm pretty sure it doesn't say 300DT on the trunk.......





**edit**
Good Lord you have 3 on here incorrectly named. Snap out of it man!!

Seriously, good luck with your sales.

Yeah, but we know what he means...and I for one appreciate that he didn't say 300TD for a sedan.

Good humor on the forum.

The reason I left 240D on the trunk lid is the same conclusion you might come to when purchasing annual plates. Try comparing an 83 300DT to a 82 240D.

I'm in Cannonsburg, just outside of Rockford.

I just had great success in using the MB non hardening windshield caulking available from Fastlane or MB. It was about $18 if I remember correctly. The black hardening stuff I got at an auto parts store did not work.
