Default Martin d10, d12 or d16? Vs larrivee L03/d03

I have a beloved 2016 OM28!
Sheís asking for a dreadnought companion:

Thinking about another Martin of course:

D10e vs D12e vs D16e mahog
Care to share your experience?
(Iíll have to buy it online unfortunately)

Another model that looks interesting is the larrivee l03 or d3, but I never played one so itís up to you to change my mind from a martin [emoji23]

Audition a Larrivee D-40M or D-40R or Larrivee L-40R for a measly street price of about $1500 to $1600 and you'll be smiling. The Larrivee 03 Series guitars are nice, too, but will cost you about $500 to $600 more on average but IMHO don't sound better. Both the 40 and 03 series guitars have satin finishes.

Thanks!
As iím in Europe, larrivee guitars are impossible to physically find in stores... so just online availability.
From thomann store, for example, the 40 series are more expensive than the 03.
Some youtube videos are nice, they seem to be more soulful than some taylors I tried ( in my opinion)
