First time Benz owner... 83 300d

Well i took the plunge in and bought my first to be used as a second/winter car. Love it already and will be doing whatever i can to get it running nice.

One question i have is will seats from and 87 (not sure what model) fit in with no mods up front? my drivers seat is torn and i found a set cheap but not sure if they will convert over.

Thanks for any help and im sure ill have more questions as time comes.

Welcome to Benzworld! I have an 83 300D also. Post your question in the w123 section of the forums. I'm sure someone here would be able to answer your question, or you can try the "search" mode. It might be possible that someone asked a similar question.

Yes Honey! Thats how they sound! Its a diesel!
