buderus iron boiler vs weil mclain

I have to get a new oil burning boiler. Is Buderus better than Weil-McLain? I had gotten 2 quotes from each dealer for instillation and the Buderus is about $3,000 more. Is this reasonable? The quote for the Weil is for a 145,000 BTU and the Buderus was for 120,000 BTU.

In my opinion the Buderus is far superior to the W/M. I would take objection to the price difference unless the Buderus quote includes an indirect water heater.
Has anyone done a heat loss calculation (manual J)? If not, they are just guessing on what size boiler you need. Even
120K is a lot of heat. There is a good, free, program available online from Slant Fin.
