hello from South Florida ( 240d vs 300d)

Hi everyone:

For about 15 years I have wanted to buy a w123 body style mercedes. Finally, the time has come. I am looking for a car that will be easy to repair and maintain myself. I want to restore to respectable condition. Since I don't know anything about these cars, I would love to receive some input from individuals who do. I am looking for either a 240d or 300d? which one would be easier and cheaper to work on? I think I want to go with a manual transmission. What is the difference in speed and acceleration between the 240d and 300d? Are the turbos worth getting? Do the turbos break down, and are the turbo cars harder to work on? What are the general differences in mpg on these cars? Answers to these questions and general thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
