Hi There - new 300SD owner

I am just entering the Benz world with a 1983 300SD. We saw the car at the auction and overall it was in pretty good condition so we had to pick it up. I joined to forum to inform myself on the model more and to find info on little parts and pieces. Off the bat the carpet needs to be replaced and a few other interior pieces. The car also has some sort of cheap aftermarket CD player which I am looking to replace with a nice OEM unit.

I am sure once we get into the car there will be lots of questions and items to replace.

I also run a shop that produces parts for Subaru's and my other car is a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT that has been modified and produces 260 awhp and 293 ft-lbs.

Hello and welcome BTLEGACY. You got a great car there...and you found the right place to find valuable information!

WIth regard to Subarus, I just inherited a 2000 Impreza Outback Sport w/ only 49k miles. Any suggestions on simple upgrade/modification I can do to improve it from stock?
