You HAVE to be carefull even with "Cashiers Checks" as even those can be fake these days. You don't find out until about 4 days later and by then the criminal has your car.

Most have few issues with the Diesel when the ECU is LEFT ALONE. Seems that it is the guys "chipping" that have the issues. I left mine alone and have not had any issues
