Welcome to the best Mercedes Benz forum on the planet. I don't know anyone that has gotten an MB Diesel as their first car, and wants to work on it as well. I commend you for that. Both of my nieces got 300CD's for their first cars, and they absolutely do NOT want to work on them. You definitely picked the most newbie mechanic friendly vehicle available. I don't think they get any simpler than a 240D. Short of rebuilding an engine or trans, if you follow the repair manuals and ask questions here, you should have no problem repairing any part of your car by yourself. As said, this is the best place for new parts (Pelican). For used, your local auto wrecking or better yet, members here have many parts cars. I think you will enjoy your new found hobby, as many of us here do as well.......Rich
