There are some nuances of the W202 I could never get into, having owned one, it was always a bit of pain, and I could never get into the look. My W201 was a trooper.

The ideal car is a W201, with the W202 C36 motor

Better ideal car = 300CE with C36 Motor = CE36...

A C36 with a bad tranny went cheap near me 2 years ago, and I had a chance to pick it up, what a mistake I made letting someone else get it. That motor has a new life in a TE now.

Anyway, GLWS...

SL's & 124's
