Daily Driver - 1985 Mercedes Benz 300SD - Now I can lift the Jeep!

All,

I have a 100mi commute once a week so I have not been able to lift my WK since I don't have another car. After begging for months my friend finally sold me his 1985 300SD with 311k miles...but it's still damn near perfect.

I immediately had to put a set of fat Michelin Harmony on the car and do a little tinkering to some simple stuff. I fixed the cruise control and the AC today so the car is ready for me to start commuting in it.

It will get about 30mpg on the highway so that will be a huge improvement over my 4.7L WK that gets about 17-18 on that same trip.

I'm sharing here because this is a huge step towards me getting my Jeep trail ready. I had an XJ in high school and college that was on 35's and I have missed it every single day since selling it. Once I have the WK on 35's I think I'll be happy with my driveway for good!

Nice car man - it looks super clean! I had a '83 300D through high school and college. The OM617 is basically indestructible. I miss my old MB everyday, easily the most well-built car I've owned so far.

Enjoy it!!
