Hello from L.A.
Lower Alabama, that is!
New to the forum, and fairly new to M-B. My wife bought a 2003 ML350 a couple years ago - almost by accident. We were in the market for an SUV - either an Escalade or an Avalanche, but couldn't touch a decent used one for under $30-35K. Wound up with an nearly perfect "Inspiration" edition ML350 with under 30K miles, and under $25,000 FROM A DEALER! Go figure!
My step son has since become a diesel fanatic, has been running a ford Powerstroke on WVO for almost a year and is now starting to make his own bio-diesel, SO...
I've decided to jump on both bandwagons, and just purchased a 1987 300SDL with 250K miles! I just LOVE this car! Its in nice original condition, and I look forward to (hopefully) many years of good service from it!.
I found this forum while looking for DIY tips - I'm sort of "mechanically challenged", but like to do small projects myself, when I'm able.
