Reliability and Performance of motors/compare

I'm new to this site, but I have been checking out several MB sites. I can't seem to find a site that tells me about different motors in the various MB's. Which ones are better (I'm sure they are all good), and which ones are most reliable. I have an 83 240D which I have been told is indestructable. I am looking to upgrade and buy a newer one, but has the performance and reliability stayed as high on the newer ones? I am looking for something between 1990 and 1995. I have been looking at a 1995 C220 at my local dealer, but so far I am not impressed.

Basically, I want to compare engines and find out which ones has stood the test of time and have high quality that MB owners are expecting. Compared to my deisel, everything else looks weak.

I would like some feedback. If I am wrong, please tell me!

I think an engine forum would be way too specialised for common folks like me.

However, I do know that if you wanna compare a DIESEL engine, you won't be short of views if you posted a thread in the DIESEL FORUM with a topic like "What Diesel Engine is the Best?". (ps. you might also want to stick a poll in there)

I've never seen a Diesel forum anywhere else more excited and passionate about this topic than here in this shop.

Good luck.
