Yeah it does look pretty good. Wheels look wrong. Not bad really, I just can't see anything other than Bundts or the steel wheels with hubcaps on a W123. It was my understanding that MB never fitted a manual with a turbodiesel. So a transmission swap, or turbo addition was done at some point?

A gasoline Jetta with the 1.4 engine gets ~34mpg mixed, probably better on the highway. So here, with unleaded at $3.99, that's 11.7 cents/mile. The diesel at 42mpg with fuel at $5.19 would be 12.3 cents/mile. So there's no fuel cost savings driving a diesel any more. The higher energy content
