    Had my car about a month now, it had done 9k when I got it now done 10k
    its a e250 cdi cabriolet

    I just wondered how good the engines are in these cars. only 4c with 2.1 engine. If I do 10k per year might I be ok to do 100k without any major problems. Obviously I know that things can happen but in general just wanted to know how good people thought these engines are.

    WOuuld you say they were as reliable as other makers, bmw, honda ...

    there are 2.1 cdi engines known to forum members in the 220cdi guise with over 500,000 miles on, so i dont think 100,000 will be much trouble. my own 220cdi has been faultless so far with 111k miles under it

    A big one
    The same engine (fundamentally) is used in Vito and Sprinter. If you look after it, it'll be good for hundreds of thousands of miles. My E220CDI (OM646 EVO, same basic architecture as your OM651) has 98k on it, and I intend to keep it for at least eight more years at 20k/year.
