New 280E Onwer

Hey all, glad to be a part of the community. I recently got a 1984 Mercedes Benz 280E. It is my project car and has a long way to go haha. This past weekend I did manage to get it running! The guy I got it from told me I could have it if I wanted so I took it off his hands. It does have a bit of a rough idle, which I think is a vacuum leak. Other than that it drives great! It is a 4 speed manual and has around 130k miles. The title says '84 but I was looking through the internet and keep seeing the car was made from '77-'81. The guy I got it from said it was a grey market car, but it was free so as long as the title gets renewed and I get tags for it then I am set.
