I was out today in the 190e and I saw alot of newer model Benz's, but you rarely see any 190e's, at least around here you don't, I see alot more 300e's compared to 190e's.

Although I like the newer models I still love the 190 series.

i had one guy ask me in the parking lot if i wanted to sell it, I said its an 85, he said it's a Benz!!

I heard on Sirius today, the 80's station, that in 1986 a gallon of gas was $1.22 and the avg car was $6700, now in 85 a 190e was around $24,000, so to have a 190e in 85, 86, etc was a big deal, that was alot of money!!! I was only 11 at the time, so it didn't matter to me.

Here you see 10 190's in a day when you drive around alot. Most of them are 190D 2.0 or 2.5. Sometimes you see a 2.5 Turbodiesel, you don't see the 190E that much here, but I noticed that most of them (when you see one) are 2.3, I only saw the 2.5-16v 5 times (one of them was a EVO II :D).

I see quite a few of them around here. Lots of college students have them, as well as Benz aficionados. In an average day I see 4 to 5 of them.

my 2 neighors has one each. the girl across the street (and she's hella good lookin' too) drives an old old old 2.3... the ones with the skinny bumper. the dude up the street has a newer 2.6 white and also owns a E60 (06) M5... or his wife does (and SHE IS SMOKIN'!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I WANNA LEG HUMP HER EVERYTIME I SEE HER IN THE M... but i digress).

there are definately more 300e's floating around here but 190e's are here and there though definately a lot more rare.

Here in Minneapolis I only see about one a week, if that. It's been an even mix of 2.3's and 2.6's. None of them have been as clean as mine :)

There are a few around our area but none with bodykits. So mine sticks out like dogs balls in comparison (pardon the french lol). Actually, theres a 190E in a town half an hour away from here, has an AMG kit, but i reckon its ugly as cos its two tone and the interior is terrible, just not looked after.. The kit on mines a Zender and i personally think its more attractive, but, im a bit bias i guess! lol
