Always crimp. Soldering makes the wire rigid and will become brittle over time. A good crimp will last the lifetime of the harness. I know there will be other people with other schools of thought on this one that will more than likely chime in; however, I have built motorsport (milspec) harnessing for the last 6 years and have never once soldered wires together (unless a factory connector called for it like the 14 pin connector in the engine compartment). I have also never had a failure of a crimp after it passed the pull test.
