We finally acquired a 1982 300CD; this one has new seat covers and pads and has been repainted (nicely, too!). Silver/blue on navy blue tex interior. Engine compartment is spotless. Purchase price was 5k; initial shop visit (inc all new bilsteins) was 1k. We could use some help on this one as we have a few observations:<br>
<br>
a) car stalls easily when put into drive/reverse when cold. Letting it warm up a bit helps and can then drive off. The glowplugs might need replacement; the glowplug indicator light only stays on for a couple of seconds and then shuts off. Car starts a bit hard when cold.<br>
<br>
b) We would like to add a pass side rear view mirror...anybody done this with a manual mirror? Parts? Cost? Hassle?<br>
<br>
c) The pushbuttons for the seats (that are supposed to be depressed to then move the seatbacks forward to access the rear seat) do not work; ie, the seatbacks move back and forth. We would like to correct.<br>
<br>
d) surprise...cruise control works great!<br>
<br>
e) window regulators...mechanic says we'll need new window regulators for all four windows soon....cost, anyone? Is this a job a garage mechanic can attempt (without beer)?<br>
<br>
This car may not be as fast as the 92 Lexus sc300 5 speed I just picked up but it sure is a hell of a lot nicer riding car than the toyota, 'er, lexus.<br>
