my w201

i got it in early october .. its a 1986 190e 2.3 with 197,xxx miles ..still runs smooth

idle was rough early on ..but after a fluids flush was mint..

there was no front suspension ..left mount shot..right shock blown

..i found a 2.3 16v in the junkyard so i snaked the bumpers and door panels .

for being a minnesota/wisconsin car all its life ..its pretty clean ..the only real rust is around the jacking mounts wich is live-able..when i get my skirts on it should be almost invisable ..i hope..

its the funnest car iv ever driven..and we have some good ones..
im planning to update on every benz in our just doing this for a start..

You're right. The 190e is a blast to drive. Bought my first MB in August, an '86 190e with 84Kmiles. A little slow to get going but a great ride for a small car!
