The 115 220d or the 123 240d, both with manual transmission. THe 123 has enough room that you can easily get to the bell housing bolts and the 115 has the easy double a-arm front suspension and less electronics that the 123. I like the manual glow plug on the 115, but the 123 had some nice upgrades on the engine. Maybe a 115 with the 123 diesel would be perfect.

My least favorite is the 69 113 with an automatic. I hate king pins and the bosch injection with all the emissions and relays is truly confusing.

Of course any new Benz under warranty fits the ticket. All you have to do is drive in and then pick it up. Can you define DIY as driving to the garage?
