If you're going for just straight hard core durability and longevity it would be hard to beat the OM601....but at 72HP it will get you there just not quickly. They are a bit easier to work on than...

I tried the rain-x junk in my W126 once and had similar results. Smearing and skittering wiper blades. It also turns to sludge from the intense heat of the heated coolant reservoir. Never again!

I'd be suspicious of the monovalve (water control valve) for the climate control, they've been known to degrade internally and start fires in W123s.... :eek:

The Zerex G05 gold coolant is better at protecting all of the aluminum in the cooling system on an MB as it is formulated differently.

The hood weight isn't that big of a deal....my dad's 300SD had a steel replacement hood.

Those 40lbs aren't going to have much impact on the 0-60 times. :D

Life's too short to spend 100+ miles a day in a Camry. Not to mention the risk of being killed in one...they're a popcan compared to a W211 or even a VW. A 130k mile TDI vs a 270k mile CDI is a...

Unless the OM611 is dead/unrepairable why would you want to trade it for the 603? The 611 is superior in efficiency and power. I've driven in one in a S203 Europe, it was fantastic!

That damage isn't bad enough to give up on it, its all high up/sheet metal, I doubt the lower structure has much if any damage at least based on the photos.

Yup its like that on the W126 also, its just so the bleed air for the VCV is drawn from a reliably clean/dry source of air inside the car rather than out in the engine compartment.
