I would recommend you change your add to indicate that it is a 300 D sedan. A 300TD is a STATION WAGON which has an entirely different value and following. Nice that you have low mileage, etc. Probably no one is going to believe that you average 33 mpg. Also, the "rust is a regular maintenance item" isn't going to win you any friends.

Good luck

Ditch that passenger side mirror, and fix the drivers door handle. Re list the car as a 300D not a 300TD.

Interior looks thing imo, if you are the second owner of the car you probably shouldn't claim that it is a "one owner car"

Everyone - thanks for advice -

Did everything except the changing of the mirrors. I really liked the european side mirror look.

In the city i got 20-23 mpg and highway - there were a few trips - driving very lightly - and going off refill (which can probably add 1/2 gallon or so) - i did manage 33mpg but mostly hovering around 28-30.

I divide the total mileage driven by what I topped that tank off with - if that makes sense.

Anyway - picked up a CLK550 - so will follow that thread going forward. 40K used - no current issues except - transmission "programming had to be updated" wouldnt shift down after stopping - freaky!

Starting to miss the 300D - realized diagnosing the CLK is much more compliacated!!

BTW - if this info helps anyone - car sold for $3400. The rust was the major issue and concern.

When i was looking for a 300D coupe (still dreaming about) - in the midwest - they all have rust - i always kind of expected around this area. But understandibly - east/west coast cars dont have these issues.
