Thinking of buying w211 E200 CDI

Hello all, I just joined the forum and have been trying to do some research on a 2003 w211 E200 CDI. Does anyone have any input on reliability/common failure parts on this car? Are the MB diesels more reliable than their gas counterparts? I have tried searching but info on this specific model is very limited. I currently own a 99 BMW 328i (e46) and would like to switch over to MB so any and all input would be greatly appreciated. I know the E200 CDI wasn't sold in the US, I'm in the Dominican Republic and we get cars from Europe and the US...again, any feedback will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Have you had a look at the W211 forum? They don't talk about the E200CDI but the E320 CDI problems are very similar, you would just have four injectors that may leak instead of 6 etc.
