Post Future MB Diesel owner

Hi All,
Came across this site while researching MB diesels. I recently found a new job (the good news as I was coming off a layoff) that includes a 150mi/day commute (the bad news). As I will be putting over 36k miles per year I figured a used diesel would be a good candidate for my daily commuter. And what better diesel than a Benz!
Originally I looked at late model E320 CDIs, there are some GREAT deals out there right now, but got cold feet from watching the news.
So now I have lowered my sites to something under $10k, and am open to late 80's up to the last pre E320 diesels in 99. Right now my preference is for a 98-99 turbo, but am also currently looking at an 87 300D turbo.

Anyway I will post models specific Qs in the appropriate forum(s) as thing develop.
Big thanks in advance for all the help you all supply on forums like this.
