Honestly the height issue is the only thing standing in the way of a s124 with a 606.
That's why I was suggesting raising Mitzi -- that would be a "factory" mod. I think it was called "Raised ride height for countries with poor road conditions" or something like that. I'll get my spec book and see what the height actually is. I've been somewhat interested in doing this myself (maybe to a beater 240D), since I live in the snow belt.
