I am looking and going to get a 300td. I want<br> to hear feedback on this subject. I did drive a<br> 1985td turbo and a 1979td non turbo. I didnt feel<br> a differance. Possibly one or both needed tranny<br> linkage adjustments. The 85 did have an exhaust<br> leak. Please any feedback would be appreciated.<br>

I have owned a great running 300D. Very fast for a non-turbo. Then I got the 300TD wagon...which is like a Ferrari by comparison. It is ALOT faster from a dead stop, to about 50 mph or so....nice for freeway onramps and such. Not to mention just better acceleration in any gear, any situation. I strongly recommend the turbo car. If you could not tell the difference between the two, the turbo was not working!<br> Good luck<br> <br> GJ

gj thanks so much for responce. Come to think of it, the 85 turbo didn't have an air filter nor<br> the filter housing. Glad I didn't get that one.<br> Any low mileage td's out there for sale in the northeast? Ebay has two beauty's right now. They<br> are A1 examples. I couldn't buy either with out<br> a garage for it. So I have settle for one that will be outside all the time. Any more feedback?<br> thanks.
