Good Diesel MB Recommendation?

This is my first so go easy on me.

In anticipation of driving (I am 4 months away from getting a drivers license) I am trying to find a good car to get as my first car.

I want a good, reliable, cheap ($2-5k) MB diesel. It needs to have airbags, (driver only is fine, I won't really be taking anyone with me) be able to fit me in it, (I am 6'3") and have relatively cheap insurance.

Any suggestions?

I have found a '95 E300 Diesel for about $3k. How are those on reliability?
What year is best for a 300D that meets my wishes above? I know 82's don't have airbags. So what years do?
