Help !! My Mercy has an Identity crisis !!

Hi all Gurus!

Could you guys please put me out of my misery !!

I own a 1989 Merc 190 E, 2.0 litre, Manual – 5 speed, 4 cylinder which I purchased a couple of months ago.

Upon finding your brilliant site, I have – like a conscientious newbie – tried to find my car model by using your model guide page, checking all options - Production Guide, Chassis and Engine No. Look-up, Model Look-up and finally VIN Decoder.

Believing the VIN Decoder I now own a 2002 , w201 (which is correct according to my vehicle VIN Plate !!) , Daimler-Benz., Model 190 E 2.3 (!!) , Diesel (!!!!) [:(!]

Now that worries me slightly, as this could suggest someone fiddling with my VIN plates (which doesn't look lik it !) or simply – as I have all the history of the car – that the decoder needs to be amended.

My engine number starts off with 102.962……. which is also not featured anywhere on this site.

So – I am now even more confused than before and really need some advice !!

Hope you gurus can shed some light on all of this and help me have a sound night’s sleep again ;>))

Many thanks
Mickey D.
