I'm curious to know the going price for a decent condition 190D 2.5 5spd standard. We have found one (that's in any year), with this configuration, in Canada for sale and it was something around $20,000. We have a 1986 ourselves that is fully loaded with unique factory options, and pushing 500,000 kms with only a new clutch, but the body is pretty rough on it. We couldn't even find them in Germany! We were told that if the body was decent on ours, and as a Canadian spec with full service history from new, that it could be close to $30,000 (if engine was rebuilt)...seems high, but given the rarity of these cars...who knows?

I don't know the market there, but it seems outrageous here.
Especially when a gas version only brings a few $grand$.
Rarity takes a certain and willing buyer, and it seems there are other far far better choices (even rare choices) in that price point.

But, let others chime in on this. I could be off base.

Don't count on anywhere near that price. If it were a very, very low mileage 5 speed turbo in new condition there is no way it's worth the same (or close) to what it was new in 1986-87. Maybe if it were owned by a celebrity or had something unique about it besides the diesel engine and 5 speed.

there's no way anyone would drop $20k on a 190d 5speed that had 500km on it..If i owned that car i'd be happy to get $1500 out of it.

I've seen maybe 5-10 190d 5-speeds for sale since last year and only 1 gas 5 speed, which i bought for $500, and sold for $900.

That's what I thought...I know we bought ours in 2007 with 240 000 kms and with peeling paint plus lots of rust for $2200 Cdn. That was the going market here at the time. I think ours is the only 2.5 5 spd here in Alberta though...no records of another one from what I've heard.
