5) GL350 -- too expensive
Well my wife reminded me that I missed a requirement. That a "no minivan" agreement was part of our wedding vows.

I think we're leaning towards a 606 swap into a late s124 or find a european model to import.

Subaru never made a diesel as far as I can tell and I don't even want to imagine an engine swap on that thing. But my wife already made it known that switching to gas is not an option. Even if some of her requirements aren't met.
