new to this forum.

Hi all, wanted to introduce myself. Figured I'd join this forum for more tech information and such. I'm very active on 190rev, under the same name.
For those who don't know me from there,
My name is Zach. I'm 19, and I live in Pittsburgh pa. My first car was a 1987 190e 2.3 5spd.
Its dead now, currently a parts car.
This is the last picture I ever took of it.

After it died, I needed another car. I slipped into a dark state of my life and bought a BMW e34. I won't burn your eyes with that.
I knew I needed back in the Benz game, and there was only one car I wanted...a 190e 2.3 16v.
After months of searching for the perfect cossie...
I didn't find one. So I bought this.

1993 190e sportline with a c36 swap, 16v getrag, 16v 3:27 LSD rear end. Some of you may know it as the "wald" car because of the wald kit. Now sporting an amg gen2 bumper, sans impact strip (if anyone has a euro rub strip laying around, sell me it)
My love for the 190e had been rekindled. But I needed more. The wald was a great weekend car but I couldn't daily it. Put the BMW up for sale because I found a nice 190e 2.6 locally I wanted. I didn't get that. I got this:

1993 190e sportline LE, 16v kit, amg boot spoiler from my old car, a few other fun little bits and bobs. Drove to South Carolina and meet with a guy from Alabama and did a straight trade, BMW for Mercedes. I think I made out like a bandit then drove it home and went to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, with my uncle driving the wald car.

this is what it looked like when I got it, blacked out s600 grill and ugly slr mirrors. Changed all that btw.
Anyways, that's my long ass introduction.
Nice to be here.
