Hello All! Forum Newbie Here

Hello. Name's Alex. I just bought my first car, a 1985 MB 300D with 295,XXX miles on the odometer. I am its 3rd owner. It has quite the story behind it, and I hope to be part of that story for the next 100,000 miles, maybe more. Currently it needs a little work; new motor mounts, tires and alignment, new struts in the rear, a new drivers seat, new drivers window switch, new hood release, and the paint is a little faded in spots (it's a dark grey, not sure what they called it from the factory). That aside, the mechanicals are solid; the motor runs great, has perfect oil pressure, transmission shifts perfect, and I have seen 30 MPG on the highway while averaging 70mph. I am new to the world of Mercedes Benz, and diesels as well, but I hope the members of this forum, and my diesel mechanic friends, will be able to answer most of my questions.
