Manual vs vaccuum?

I know the early 240D models had the manual windows, doorlocks, sunroof, but was curious if other models had the manual controls also? Did any of the 300D models have the manual controls, or is the 240's the only ones with such?

Lot's of Euro versions had manual transmissions/windows. But in regard to your question for U.S. models, some 240D and 230 models were equipped with manual windows, etc., but no 300Ds, AFAIK.

As far as I know the 210 has vacuum locks. Noticed, that around 1990 they changed the system and added electric vacuum pump that would open the doors even after long parking.

yeah usually the euros and base version cars like your 240 would have the manual. I had a 300cd with vaccuum and my friend had a 240 with manual, I was always envious because mine never seemed to work correctly and his worked like a dream. Simpler is better
