Both the option seems very dim to me atlest with 3L budget it would be very hard to find a good Accord however you never no...

You should look for OHC

OHC it has to be.
Why ? It is a good reliable car.
Also, You seem to be sticking to a budget, indicating you would also want to be having not-so-high ownership costs, right ?
You may get an accord for 3-4 L but the spares wont be as cheap. They would be as costly (2-3 times). And old cars would mean you may need to fix / replace something here and there at times.
Also old gen Accord spares may turn out to be an issue soon. This was mentioned to me by a mumbai Honda dealership.
If you are not looking to show-off, a OHC makes a lot more sense.
And save you some $$$ on fuel bills too.

A fact that many people overlook. Even if you buy an Accord for 4 lakhs or a W124 for 5 lakhs, the cost of parts & general upkeep will be in line with their original ex-showroom price (i.e. 15 - 25 lakhs).

Between the two, I'd choose the Accord for its all roundedness. Its a great luxo-barge and substantially more car for the money. However, if you want the thrill of high revving + room for modifications + good FE, you are better off with the OHC.
