So I have been reading this site since my grandfather passed his 93 190-E on to me (about a year ago).

I absolutely love this car and noticed recently that people had been checking their VIN numbers, which I also did earlier today.

This went as expected, 2.6L 190-E, electric seats, ect... the only thing that looks strange is this- 250 AMG DRIVERS PACKAGE.

I tried to find out what the AMG drivers package changes but I could not find anything, anyone have any idea? Here is everything that my VIN came up with.

VEHICLE TYPE: Car
MODEL NAME: 190 E 2.6 JAPAN

I do believe that term AMG Driver package was misprint from whom ever enter into the VIN searching at the first time...!!.. from my best acknowledge the AMG driver pack only apply to late 190Es with Cosworth 2.3-16V high compression engine than reg 2.3-16V Nam and came with Cosworth body wide body kit.I could be wrong !!!!
Don't Jap model has right hand drive ? and Vin # with WDBA....is American model.

Just a thought, but are you sure all the VIN numbers on the car match? They could of done some swapping when it was imported..

Hmm, not exactly sure of the history of the car (past my grandfather). Everything on the VIN matches and like silarrow said it is possible it is a misprint. Even more so JacobB said he got a similar issue.

I think im just going to take it that 250- actually means an alpine audio set.

I don't know why it says its a Japan model. Guessing its just another misprint.

i don't see anything "amg" related on the car...errors can be extremely prevalent on 15+ yr old information that been put into the system by a human

either way you have a decent looking car, already has euro headlights and clear corners..no rust bubbles give it a good wash and wax and a tune-up and your all set to go
