What year is the car? does it have the sportline badges? Leather seats? 8 hole alloys?
Just a few easy questions you should answer to see if it really is a sportline.

SHAUNE55 thanks for the info. for some reason I thought it would say sportline not evo1 under sport package. it is def not an evo of any sort. I guess it is worth a look though.

Sportline option

Mercedes-Benz offered an option called "Sportline" for the W124 and W201 chassis cars. This option was available in the North American market for the 1992-93 model year 190E 2.6, 1992-93 300E/300CE and 1993-95 E320/E320 Coupe. In the European market, however, the "Sportline" option was available for all body styles. The option package included sport seating (sedans, not coupes), wider wheels (7" rather than 6.5") and lower profile tyres (205/60 x 15 rather than 195/65 x 15), quick ratio steering, "Sportline" badges on the front wing moldings and gear knob, a slightly lowered ride height and a specially tuned suspension including shorter, stiffer springs, struts, anti-roll bars, and bushes.
The suspension components of the Sportline package were available as an option on all cars, including estates, as Option 653 - Sports Chassis with 8-Hole light alloy rims.

So I have determined that it is in fact a sportline with some help from the fine folks on this forum. Now the question is it worth it. The car is in ok over all shape it has 293xxx miles on it and a hole in the hood from the strut coming through. Owner says that was from PO. Also trany kicks and the idle is low. Also noticed that the oil pressure dropped to 0 at one point on my test drive. It did not stall on me once though. He is asking $1000 for it and I am almost there.

Another thing to consider is that I have a 91 CA edition 2.6 already and thus a lot of parts.

SO should I get it?

thanks
