Received my 1985 260E today.

Hello friends,

I would like to formally introduce myself to the forums. My name is Colin, I'm a 22 year old Canadian just finishing my undergrad at Carleton University in Ottawa. The Mercedes I just bought is my graduation present to myself! I've always wanted to go back to a European RWD car after I spent my first year on the road driving a Volvo 740. Since then, I've had two good experiences with a Mazda 323 and a Honda Accord, but driving dynamics and style are not the strong points of those cars. So I began searching over a month ago for something new.

My search led me to a 1985 Mercedes Benz 260E. That may not sound like a real model/year combination to you, but that's what's on the registration, that's what it's badged as, and so that's what I'm calling it. To see more about what this car actually is, click here:

I look forward to using this forum as a great resource for me to fix the car myself, which I always prefer doing.

So here are the pics!

Nice car. You escaped the E-Test as well.

If I didn't have a full house, I'd have got this one. to replace my 190
