Ive heard those W115s handle a lot better than W123s. Any truth to that? I know they are lighter so it seems that they would be more responsive. I have heard a lot less body roll as well.

W115 Handling

I only drove a W123 once but logic tells me that MB would have improved handling with the introduction of the W123. Sorry I can't be of more help.
