Out of curiousity, in the W126 chassis, 6cyl engines, in Euro trim for the 280 and Euro or N.A. for the 300), what would be the better built engine or more reliable? Was the 280 engine ever offered in N.A.? I will post pics of both.

280SE/SEL (1979-1985)
126.022 280SE
126.023 280SEL
2,746cc, 86 x 78.8mm, 6-cyl DOHC, type M110, Bosch fuel injection. 185bhp at 5,800rpm; 177lb.ft at 4,500rpm

126.024 300SE
126.025 300SEL
2,962cc, 88.5 x 82.2mm, 6-cyl OHC, type M103, Bosch fuel injection. 190bhp at 5,600rpm; 192lb.ft at 4,250rpm

Thanks in advance
