Newbie bought a handful...

I just picked up my first MB a 1988 300Te mostly because it was cheap and it had the third seat in the rear that my girls are nuts for. It's all there but is "run down" to quote my mechanic.

Repairs will be many but I believe that this Benz is a car that's worth it due to the fact that it'll be with me as long as I want to keep it. Most cars simply die and become silly to repair, so you move on.

So I will get caught up reading and then launch into the forum with my many issues. It seems though there is always someone here that can save me from dropping it off and paying another $700 bill.

both lower ball joints, 2 motor mounts and 1 trans mount all need replacing so I'm having the mech do it. Estimate is $750. More than I paid for the car!

Off we go....!
