Seems to me that 123 turbodiesels and 126 Diesels can be had for as little as 110 and 115 Diesels in the same condition. You'll have your hands full with weekend projects to get the interior and AC in shape but rust shouldn't be a problem in AZ.

If you want/have to shift, the 123 240D is the most common MT MB available.

You'll have too much competition from forum members when those elusive Euro or converted 300Dts and 300SDs with MT hit the market. None were offered by MB USA.

That said, maybe there's an age limit on the cars that are emissions tested so an older Diesel might be the way to go. Or move to California where Diesels aren't tested.
