FS: 1993 190E 2.3 "Special Edition" in Vancouver
I decided to sell my 190E as I'm going to be buying a 2011 Smart Fortwo (decided to factory order one for early 2011). It's not really worth it to trade it in of course plus it has many good years left on it and deserves a good owner.
If you click on my sig I have recent pics of it and here is the rundown of info on it:
-Aircared until June 2011
-Custom "Avantgarde" grille
-Recently replaced cassette holders with the Euro Map Pocket
-Recent oil change with Mobil 1 0W-40 oil and Bosch Oil Filter
-Transmission was rebuilt before I bought it from White Rock Sports & Imports where it has been serviced since 1996 - they have the full history for repairs and servicing
-New front JBL speakers from Best Buy with remaining warranty
-Coolant Flush performed recently
Everything works and the car runs great. The only reason I'm selling is because I would like something newer plus I almost never use the backseat so I figure a two seater is ample for what I need in this stage of my life.
I'm getting a couple things fixed on it Thursday - it needs a new engine cooling fan switch (extremely common problem on 190s) and there's a wiring short circuit which I'm getting addressed.
The only two items that will need addressing for sure in the future (and I have adjusted the price to reflect this) is the A/C will likely need a recharge or conversion (if important) and the original exhaust is on its way out and will probably need replacing in the spring.
Otherwise it drives great and it's a wonderful car for commuting or for a young driver.
I'm pretty firm on price but am willing to move a bit if it means it's sold right away. I'm asking $2500 CDN.
