Acura guy from Huntington Beach possibly making the switch to MB.

My name is Brett and I currently own an Acura Legend and Chevrolet Tahoe. I joined Benzworld a few gears ago because I was about to buy a 1989 Mercedes 190E, but the guy selling the car turned out to be a scammer. I ended up buying my Legend from my grandma after my old Integra "broke", but I may be ready to switch from the Legend to an early 90's 190E if I can finnew well maintained one in good-excellent condition. I looked in the 190E section, but couldn't find what kinds of things to watch out for? I know Legends are very blown head gasket prone; my legend has had 2 in it's 226,000 mile life. Basically, I want to know how "bulletproof" these cars are and how many miles i can expect from a well maintained example before it needs major repairs. If I can bring myself to selling this car, it will probably happen in June or July 2011.
