Got an '83 240D - new to Mercedes, new to diesel.

New here, from Woodbridge, CT.

Just purchased my first Mercedes - a 1983 240D.

New to Mercedes - new to diesel. I'm here hoping to learn about my beautiful new car (and others).

I'm really a motorcycle guy, so being this passionate about a car is new to me.

Thanks for stopping by.

keeping some "baby butt wipes" handy will make the diesel transition user friendly, the nozzle handles tend to be oily and using gloves usually ends up with the interior/trunk smelling like diesel. Enjoy!
