I already own a 300D but a friend is selling me a brown 240D 4 speed. It looks pretty nice and has ~180K on it. No radio and the AC doesn't work but it's otherwise rather nice. I'm planning on buying it and re-selling it, unless I fall in love with it then I might sell my 300D.

Can someone tell me what they think it's worth and how I might feel about a 240 compared to my 300 auto?

Thank you.

300 turbo or NA?

240D's are relatively nimble but are just slow to get up to cruising speed. The 300 NA can go ultimately faster. The manual feels faster since you can make more use of the power that is available.

As to the value, post some pictures, is the interior nice and or any rust? If it's a real nice 180k mile car you can probably get a fair amount for it if it's a good specimen.
