Brand new 240d Owner

I just bought an 82 240d, and have absolutely no records on it. I'm going to get the oil changed this week, but am wondering if anyone can give me some good advice for other things to check. I've never owned a diesel before. It seems to drive pretty well, definitely slow, but how slow is too slow for a 240d? I live in Seattle, so its pretty hilly, and have been able to snail up the hills at about 35 mph. Haven't tried it on the freeways yet.

No smoke, no leaks as far as I can tell. Only thing I'm not sure about is as I'm coming to a stop the car kind of pulses until I'm totally braked. Any insight into the little things I should worry or not worry about would be great. Also, any shop recommendations in the Seattle area would be very appreciated!
