Hi All:

I am a relatively new MB owner, having had my 1989 190E 2.6 (206K) for about 9 months now. I also have a 1992 190E 2.3 that I bought as a parts car but it has emerged that it may be in better shape than the '89 that I use as a daily driver.

I bought into the MBs at the suggestion of an old Army buddy but have found that they are significantly more complicated and expensive to maintain than I am used to. I hope that there are some local MB people in RI or nearby MA and CT that can advise me on how to sort things out...

I have also been looking for a decent 190D since it is the same car with much better fuel economy than the E, but no luck so far. If I had the money, I would own a W123? (Late 70's to mid-80's) 300D or 300CD.

Looking forward to meeting some of you,
