Need Opinions on 6 vs 8 cylinder W140s

I mistakenly posted this initially in the diesel area. Sorry.

I am now in the market for a late model (after early quality problems) W140. They just look so darn good! As a break from my personal need to smell jet fuel, I am gonna go gasoline vice diesel this time.

I would consider either L6, V6, or 420 (gas) but would appreciate hearing from those that have each kind ... specifically, what kind of maintenance issues have you had, what kind of gas mileage do you get, are you bothered by lack of power (in case of 6's), etc.

Thanks in advance!
