Turbo Diesel Estate: 123 or 124?

Ok, I know that asking for personal preferences can be a dangerous topic but I'd like to hear why you'd prefer one over the other. They seem to bring roughly the same money on the private party market, am I to assume that the 123 is better?

123 has an all cast iron head and block as opposed to the 124 with the aluminum head and cast iron block. I favor the 123 because of its heavy duty construction, that and the fact that they seem to run literally forever. Be careful with the turbo because when your car is cold and you push the gas the turbo can kick in and blow the engine. Non turbo 123s are a favorite of many because they are the simplest most economical benzes out there. Id say get an old 240d stickshift with the roll up windows and no sunroof.
