300-E Model: Any Thoughts?
As some of you may know by now, I just bought my first used MB, a 1986 190e 2.3L and am starting to turn into an MB enthusiast and trying to learn all I can and have found myself looking at every MB on the road now to see what I can learn.
Today an MB was coming up behind me and in the rear-view mirror I thought it was a 190 model as the front grille and lines of the hood and quarter panels seemed to be a 190, but as it got closer and passed (Ikept slowing up just so I could get a good look at it) I saw that it was a 300E and seemed like a very sweet car.
Seemed the perfect size for me, larger than a compact but not too large either, and had very nice, clean lines and an elegant look.
I couldn't tell what year it was, don't know enough about them yet, but read somewhere on this forum that the "real" MB's of quality were the ones before mid-1990 and that they have the number first and then the letter, like 300E, and newer MB's have the letter then number, like S-500 or something.
So, was the 300E a good car, should I consider getting one or are their better, more reliable models?
