W201 New owner. first time MB

so i got a 1985 190e 16v this weekend. for cheap. 1500 cheap. the car is in good shape, it still needs some TLC. with the paint some seats and the dash is cracked. but orver all the thing is good. the guy sold it to me for due to he thought it had a miss fire and that coolant was leaking into the engine. not the case. did a leak down test. nothing showed up, did a pressure test on the coolant sys. nothing there. everything seems to work great. the car does have a rough idle. where sometimes it might want to die. but does not . driving on the road with the RPM's 1200+ the car runs great just at idle is not right. and i have no idea. but wanted to say hi and that i got this great new car that i am going to put some money into. i hope to hear from you guys. and ttyl

here are some pics hope they show
