Bought 1995 300D, has 177k on it, is Pearl Charcoal, very good paint, interior is excellent black leather. Has most all of the toys on it.

Need to buy front bumper cover (my fault) forgot how old the plastic was and how brittle some of them are.

A knothead hit me in the right corner ligthtly, fortunately only the lens cover needs replacing, so will replace both. That way will look the same

Two, it appears, major sellers came withim 22-cents for the bumper and taillight business.

Car runs like a top, strong tranny, very quiet, except for road noise. Could use more insulation. Doors close with a thunk. Think that's good for 15 year old ride.

No red then green racer to be sure, but once up to speed is OK.

Do some of you find yours is little frumpy when applying accelerator? I'm used to cars with where the tranny loads up at a stop, helping for quicker acceleration. This transmission does pre load. Is that normal?

Was going to post pics, but found I cannot use any of the icons, like the photo URL icon, as well as the rest, don't work when I try to use them.

Otherwise satisfied with the car . . .
