Hit up e-bay: I see 5 speed 190's on there all the time. I bought my last two MB's on ebay from over 500 miles away & got pretty much what I wanted that way.

'87 300E: sold after 11years @ 230k & still on the road somewhere in rural Tennessee.

'94 C220 with 93k totalled 10/06 by hit & run broadsiding monster truck: not a scratch or bruise for me

Thanks a lot, I appreciate the help. I'll definitely start keeping an eye out on eBay.

I have mixed feelings about the auto C220, a guy at our dealership has one, and I've driven it a few times. It has a very particular powerband, and driving it in no-clutch manual mode all the time would probably make me go crazy. :-P I haven't ever gotten to stretch out the legs of 202 C280, but unless I could find a euro model with a stick I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be into it.

As far as patience, I'm fine, I've been looking for a car since May, so it's not like I'm in a huge rush.

For the money you want to spend, you can get a nice w126.
