Post BenzDslPwr - 1985 MB 300SD

two weeks ago, I became a proud owner of 1985 Mercedes Benz 300sd. It has approximately 163K miles and no rust!!! After the purchase, I visited my local autorized Benz mechanic and there were a few items that had to be fixed or replaced: front suspension ball joints, turbo seal, starter, thermostat and engine mount. There is a still a number of things to fix but they don't affect the way the car performs. I have put some money into it already, however, I believe that this car will reward me with its longetivity and reliability. I have never been a Mercedes Benz owner and I am looking forward to the new relationship. I would appreciate any advice or tips that you could share with me to make this relationshiop an enjoyable one

Hi BenzDslPwr,

Welcome to the forums...great info here...i used to own a 83 300SD (best car i have ever owned!!), sadly it got totalled (i wasn't even in the car!!) anyway it's a great car and will go at least 500,000 miles (just keep the oil changed and the valves adjusted and it won't let you down)
