No problem from this end of the country, you're welcome. I think it is primarily the older M-B diesels you have referred to as running 200,000 to 300,000 miles. The turbocharged ones had more pep, but you'd have a ask some folks who have owned them to get a realistic assesssment, and what their maintenance costs are likely to be. Lastly, I think there are many more diesel engines in trucks and busses than there are in passenger cars, but if you want one, I think the german diesels (VW has used them too - a former girlfriend had a diesel-powered Rabbit) are better than those manufactured in some other countries.
