I agree with all the response RE the E420. Only downside is your mechanic will not be too pleased if he has to work on the M119 engine that has been crammed into the W124 body. It's pretty obvious the W124 chassis was not intended to have V8 power - its an impressive fit job but lots of things take 2X to 3X more time due to very tight clearances under the hood.

The M119 will also run hotter - its important to have a well maintained cooling system if you are in hot climates.
