240D instant start now, thanks for the advice

Great group. Replaced 4 glow plugs, used the 1/4 drill bit, made sure they were Bosch, as soon as the glow plug indicator lamp goes out she fires instantly. Thanks for all the info and help from this group.
Amazes me how the 240d rides. So comfortable and smooth, not a rattle(from the body). Seems nimble. The sound of the diesel engine is music, as is my 74 bug's. I am replacing the shocks with Bilsteins, and she has a new set of tires. I also have a 300sd that is like new, but actually like the 240d for around town driving. Long trips, the 300sd gets used.
I have found that I do not need my Valentine 1 for the 240d.

Might keep it anyway; my 300TD doesn't accelerate all that quickly but at 85 on the freeway it's still smooth as silk and you wouldn't know you were going that fast if it weren't for the speedometer.
-tom!
