Potential New Benz Owner

Howdy all!

In my quest for looking for information about a possible Benz purchase I figured what better place to seek knowledge than a forum with lots of knowledgeable, veteran owners!

I live in S.W. Michigan, run my own small web hosting business, love my hobbies of wrenching on my vehicles and farm equipment, messing around with manufacturing biodiesel, my small herd of horses (6 right now), and running my RC Cars.

I've been labeled "Diesel Don" by all my friends who know me and know how much of a Diesel enthusiast I am. I'm not an expert, but I know enough to get me into trouble then fix it so I and act like it never happened.

I'm 28.9972621492128679 years old (Feb 10th is my birthday)

.. I've gotten a keen eye on a very nice 1992 300D with 288,000 miles on it and I've come here to learn anything I can. Especially since I have never owned a Benz, worked on one, or even touched one with my very own hand in my life.

So I'm looking for any information about this beauty if anyone has any; what to look for. Quirks they exhibit, red flags to not want to purchase; etc.

Thanks all, and I look forward to getting to know everyone eventually!
