I'm not sure you could select three more DIFFERENT cars to compare. You say you want a nice cruiser. The 115 diesel looks really nice in the picture. Do you care about A/C? Do you drive over 50 mph? If the answer to both is "no" then that's a great choice. It wouldn't work for me. As for the 280 C, I have a 250 C and I think that the 114 coupe is a great car. It's also a gas pig. Do you care? If not, it's a better cruiser than the other choices. As for the 108, bigger and faster and even more thursty. It would be good for driving circles around the 115 diesel.
If you are looking for a "cruiser" then it will help if you tell us what exactly that means to you. They are all good cruisers depending on your definition of the word.
On a related note, I have a 123 turbodiesel wagon, a 71 114 coupe, and a 67/68 108 2.8L gas. The 114 coupe is the nicest to drive.
