Hi, so I'm thinking of buying another 190e, I narrowed it down to a 1993 190e 2.6 but It's kinda hard to find. so now I'm thinking bout the differences from the year 1990 - 1993.

I have a 1989 190e 2.6 and as far as i know the 90's has the front speakers on the door panel, or do they have it on the door panel and the dash (both)? and what else is the difference between the 1990 to 1993 models?

Cladding on the sides of the cars. Updated bumpers. The car sits a little lower. Speakers in the dash and "subs" in the doors. I think I got mine changed to speakers but not sure. Updated center console with the useless tape cubbys which can be switched to a euro cubby hole. Apline Stock radio rather than becker. That's all I can think of from the top of my head.

in general 90-93 i essentially the same i believe some 90s had the earlier consoles which still had the becker units instead of the alpine active bass setup. most of the 2.6s had the cladding and all 90-93 had cladding. thaats speaking about the 2.6 the 2.3 motors had several changes thru the years.

1990 didn't have door speakers but got the console, cladding and bumper updates. Mine had the Alpine tape deck in 1990. I had both '89 and '90 2.6s.
