Hi Everyone

Hi, been reading with much interest for long time
finally got off my butt & joined
been MBZ driver since college, < free 240D, with issues >
over years have learned to do most maint and repairs myself
which has added significantly
to my appreciation of how these cars are designed and built
< with the exception of a few repair projects >
< that expensive factory tool may only do one thing, but it does it well >
currently have a pair of 300CD's, 79' and 82'
recently changed out the automatic in the 82' for a 4 speed manual trans
not sure what the improved fuel economy is yet, have not needed to fuel yet
< yuk, yuk >
recently got rear ended while stopped in traffic, welcome to LA
insurance co of girl who hit me considers my car totaled
I welcome any thoughts regarding this
thanks, DslNut

Welcome to Benzworld and sadly it does look like a total to me.

Am hoping not
will put it on the hoist today and look at underneath
have on hand an assortment of good spares
obviously going to need both rear 1/4 panels
testimony to MB engineering that it "only" looks this bad
< should see the car that rear ended us, it's dramatically totaled >
< young girl, DUI, never touched her brakes >
this will play out for some time to come
thank you for your support
