RE: 1986 190E 2.3
Had one --- great fun to drive. They did save money, but it is lighter and there are some not too terrible ways they saved money.
The 2.3 has head gasket problems. Make sure it was changed or get an extended warranty - if possible.
Don't put 18" or larger wheels on it. I had a good friend and mechanic do it on his 190E and it ruined the road feel in a big way.
