RE: 18 yr old looking for a MB.

Im w/ the early 90's 190e sedan as you may find one somewhere in the country w/ a stick. My daily driver is a 91 300e which has been one of my favorite cars ever. I sold a few brand new benses recently and dont miss them at all in comparison to my older ones. A site to check out for alot of nice used MB cars is car soup dot com. good luck, BC

I am second on 190e - great looking car. If you must get something newer - try looking for stick C-coupe and try lowballing a dealer saying that he will have hard time selling it because it's stick.

On your budget, forget about a Benz for now. One repair bill could put you in the hurt locker. Stick with the Bonneville until the engine explodes or you total it. Keep saving your money, learn how to invest. Between depreciating used car values and continuing to save money, in a few years (when your income hopefully goes up,) you could get MUCH better car.

I have a 190E-16V, 5sp. It is one of the rarest Benz out there. Let me know if you are interested.

RE: 18 yr old looking for a MB.

Gee, I don't think most 18 yr olds can afford "one of the rarest Benz's out there".

In fact, a lot of us can't either.

If this is an '87 190E 16V 2.3 with a 5 speed it's probably worth something between $3K and $4K if it's in perfect shape and less than 100K miles.

What are you suggesting?

Mike

Now: 2010 GLK350 4Matic Then: 2003 C320 4Matic, 2006 E320 CDI, 2000 E320, 1994 E320, 1991 190E, 1985 300D, 1983 300D
