2nd time around, with "new" '89" MB
Hello. I'm from Delray Beach Florida. I bought an '89 300 TD last week. I had an "89" 560SL years ago....I think I like the new wagon more then the old luxo car. I forgot how heavy these cars are, they really are tanks. This TD was the loaner car for ABS Exotics, an big time indie service shop in Fort Lauderdale...they did a great deal of work on this car and other then paint that is shot on the hood and tail gate, this car is nice. It is having one issue presently, and they think it's the fuel line, part #62?....The idle is too low and the air will not come on at times.....I have to shut the air off prior to shutting the car off or the air almost definitely will not come on...
One other thing; there is a 1 inch 'cut' in the leather in the middle of the driver's seat. It is not all the way through and I would appreciate any advice to help contain that situation....come to think of it, I think the 560 had the same seat issue..
Anyway, glad to be here. I really like this car, it is tight and SOLID......
