How many made/imported to USA?: w210 1998-9 Turbo Diesels

My mind is made up - I am trading up to a w210 car. With that decison made , I have now been weighing the decsion to get a e300TD or the gasoline powered e320.

I have researched the archives here about the diesel and there seem to be some serious concerns about the glow plugs and front/rear crank seals, heads. I have wrenched alot of cars but have never owned a diesel. But then again, there is something very compelling about owning one. Not to mention the fuel mileage.

I am concerned with the availability of parts/support, tech expertise ( outside of this site , of course). These diesels seem rare.

What were the production numbers on these cars, 320 and 300?

Any thoughts folks?
