My personal opinion is not *if* an original 3.5 will bend the rods,
but *when*. Also remember that most owners think adding a quart of oil
every 1kmi is perfectly normal. For a high-mileage M103, it is... but
NOT on an OM603. But hey, if you get an S350 cheap enough, just drive
it until the engine is shot and then fork over the $$$ for a crate
motor. Or, consider swapping in a cheap/used 3.0L long block.
(Intercooled, of course. Heh-heh.)
