I bought my 1988 300CE coupe new in May of 1988 with a sticker of $52K +.
The coupe had the 3.0 M103-12V I6.

The modified AMG 320CE was about $100K in 1988.

in 87 AMG NA would upgrade your 300E to Hammer specs for around 90K to start..of course this price varied greatly as AMG was very much a-la-carte..

Prior to AMG being a big thing (from 1986 on), AMGs were apparently a good deal.

1983 Porsche 928 sold for around $43,000
1983 MB 380SL sold for around $42,000

My reciepts show my 1983 500SL with the full AMG package sold for $53,000. Swinging deal compared to the 1987 $100k w124 AMG, but one thing I've learned was that the Deutchmark was in an advantageous spot in 1983 - you could buy a Euro car for a lot less than a US car. Bitch was the cost of getting it into the country, which AMG of NA did in the early years very successfully, but then when demand starting going bigtime, prices of customizing here in the states went up bigtime too. Point being, before AMG became a huge US phenomenom, the AMG was an excellent bang for the buck.
