New set of tires and even a new trunk light

Posted By on December 1, 2014

After my blown tire fiasco I realized all my tires on the 1982 Mercedes Benz 300D Turbodiesel were aging and decided to play it safe and replace them. It made sense since I’ve been driving the car on longer trips than originally intended.


Besides tires, I had the slow leak in the spare tire fixed and added a new LED trunk bulb (photo above), which does an amazing job of lighting up the trunk — it was $3.50 on EBay — and making it easy to find things after dark.
