Yeah...

A 300SE. Simple M103 motor I find overall easier to contend with than any of the OM60x turbocharged engines.

But overall I prefer the diesel. Simply because they don't have that lousy dead spot in power delivery from idle to about 4K rpm. The M103 stock tuning is set this way by default...What a PITA! I prefer a V8 gasser over the I6 for city driving. However, the diesel provides the feel of a V8 on city and highway jaunts, plus twice the fuel economy.
