I have both

I have both a 240D and a 450SL.They are both great cars!
I find myself driving the gasser more than the 240D though.
If fuel prices start to increase again,the 450 will probably go into "hibernation" for a while.Hard to beat the 32-33MPG the 240 offers.
The 240 was originally purchased as a "safe" car for my daughter.She has been unable to master the manual transmission so I drive it instead.
An auto 240D was a brief thought,but it wouldn't be as "safe".She'd be in constant danger of being rear ended.....0-60 in 2.3 days!!
