My new ride

1991 300D and 1993 300D After the Jetta’s demise, we were looking far and wide for a suitable replacement. We almost decided on a 2011 BMW X5 diesel, but then we learned that in order to run that engine on biodiesel, we really have to delete the diesel particulate filter and the EGR, an the delete kit costs $2000! Just to get rid of those components! So I ended up buying yet another Mercedes 300D from one of the mechanics at ABW.

Here she is – on the right – a 1993 300D with 260 000 miles (the one on the left is my old ’91 with over 330 000 miles).
