Post Hello, new guy Mike here

Hello everyone

Nice to find a site that specializes in all aspects of MB cars. I have joined to do research on MB cars. I currently own a 1986 Mercedes-benz 190E 2.3 and it has proven to be more reliable and comfortable that all of the other cars have ever had. That includes a brand new, at the time, chevy. I figure that since I enjoy driving my benz so much, I should keep it forever.

I take good care of my car. However I need to know more information so that I can judge what replacement parts to buy in order to completely restore it. It has about 155,000 miles on it. Engine runs great, and has been kept up on. This includes:spark plugs, serpentine, fuel filter, oil consistanly changed with 10w-40, distributer cap, and the wire set. The interior is in excellent shape with only wear & tear.

Right now, I am searching for a new grille and bumper. I lent a friend my car, and learned a hard lesson. I am lucky that more wasn't damaged. I am considering using Ebay to get a grille, however I dont want to buy either poorly made products, namely a grille. I believe it's likely I can find out whether other people have had a problem with MB exterior parts on Ebay on this site. Also I will search for junkyards around that may have either. I will search for information about such things before I submit any questions.

Thank you for everything
