FS: Raleigh, NC 1985 240D Euro

I am coming to grips with selling my 240D Euro after about 10 years of ownership. I have a new child on the way and wife is making me sell it. (Just purchased a 1995 E320 wagon.)


I am the second owner of this RARE 5-speed manual transmission with manual windows and sunroof. This translates directly into "nothing to go wrong."

275,000 miles
A/C needs a new switch (consequently, this is the only problem i have had with this car--an aftermarket add-on, they don't need AC in Germany)
This spring replaced the crankshaft seal
Replaced radiator this spring as well
Fuel milage is incredible on the highway with the 5-speed (about 34-36 mpg)
All oil changes, filters changes done routinely by me.
A couple of dings on the body, probably could use a paint job. My cheapskate father had it painted for me while I was on my honeymoon 5 years ago--I still give him hell about that.
Cloth seats in good condition
A few cracks in the dash, adds character.
Blaupunkt CD with direct Line-In for IPOD, Polk Audio Speakers in rear

Incredible car that I will truly miss.
