RE: Should I buy it? 1986 190E 2.3
IMHO, Mercedes is not known for making good small engines. Also, buying a MB is always the easy part, I think, taking care one is the costly part. An $50 oil change here, a $100 detail job there, we are talking about real money pretty fast.
With real money, I would like to get real thing. With the gas price being so high, people are giving away their 560 SEL. You should be able to get a 90 - 91 model with less than 150,000 mile for $4000
Bottom line, I would not get close to any 190E.
