I'm looking to buy an early 80's 300CD. I have a 1986 300E which I love (upgraded to 1991 orthopedic and heated seats this week :)), and a 1989 420SEL. I've sort of got a picture of what to expect from those cars now as far as maintenance and quirks, but I have no idea on a 300CD. Does anyone have some general tips or pointers like:
-Common, bad rust-through areas?
-Common (expensive) issues?
-Any hard or difficult to find parts?

Thanks in advance! :)

Body parts, and interior bits are hard to find.
You may want to get something '82 or newer so you don't have to deal with the funky servo heating unit.
