Where can I find comprehensive MB diesel model info ?

Is there some definitive source I can buy or look to that describes in detail ALL the various MB diesels (from 123 to present) ?

I need to know years, models, chassis info, engine info, ect...

Looking to upgrade from my 87 300D, want to know what all is out there, what is good, and what is not so good.

I guess I could surf this forum, just wondering if someones put it all together.

Much thanks guys.

So the 1996-1997 E300 Diesel had less hp than my 87 300D ?? Wow.

I guess I need to be looking at 1998-1999 E300 Diesel turbo.

Any major flaws with the engines in these cars I might need to worry about (poor heads, rod benders, ect...)

Thanks guys.

Any ideas what a fair asking price is for 98-99 E300D turbo in reasonable shape (Southeast) ?

Any ideas how they take to WVO ? I would only install highest quality (frybrid or such) 2 tank.

A) Just take me to a bar and get a few beers in me.
