I have a 87 420 SEL with 230,000 miles, and I'd say you are ready for a valve job, which is common for a W126 with high mileage - had mine at 200,000. The oil loss you are experiencing is primarily around the valve stems, and new valve guides will correct that. Mine uses no oil at all now between 3,000 mile oil changes.
