240D with manual transmission. I dare anyone to dispute that...
Yeah, it's tough to see how you can beat the 123s (I assume you weren't referring to the 115 - not that it couldn't make a claim of its own...). You almost need to specify diesel or gas, because otherwise its not a fair fight.

As for the 300E... no. A fine car, but in no way the most reliable Mercedes. If I were going to nominate a gas car, I'd probably go for the 450SEL. Bulletproof engine, mechanically sound chassis. Rust killed them, not much else...
