Timing chain at around 500k miles (all new rails and pins), Im glad I caught that, the tensioner and banana rail almost failed. I am glad that I baselined the timing chain when I did.
rebuilt injectors at 510k, It didnt need them. I just wanted to do it.
New glow plugs at the same time
All new front suspension, including a steering box from a car with 30k miles.

I can send you a spreadsheet.
Extra Upgrades/ maintainence that I have started, but not finished:
boost gauge and pyrometer (EGT). I have the sensor in, the gauges would just need to be wired and installed in the car.
I have run biodiesel (www.mountainbiofuel.com
) in it and it responds very well. It starts very well (after I did the glow plugs and injectors) even in the subfreezing temperatures. I was going to put in a block heater, but I havent had to use it yet. I personally feel that 50/50 biodiesel runs better and starts better.
This car has been very reliable for me. I was commuting from Tucson to Flagstaff in Summer 2005, and I have driven it to San Diego to see my family, more times than I can count on my fingers and toes.
And whomever buys my car will have first right of refusal to buy about a pallet full of parts (We can work that out too).
I will also be offering up my 1982 300CD (white) up for sale check back.

I tried to be as detailed as possible and hit the major items, but if you have any questions let me know. I have a folder full of recepts about 2 inches, well over 15k of receipts. I always wanted to be able to hop in this car on friday night and drive anywhere I wanted within the USA.
If you don't like the price, then this car is not for you. It is ready to go another 100k+
18inch wheels are neither for sale nor included in the $6500 asking price.
