Hey thanks for running the VIN so fast! It's a convoluted mess right now. Guy said it was "euro" (yes, I've learned that is key word for modified by anybody but Merc/AMG lol). I want to go Gen 1 route I think. What all do I need? And can it be retrofitted with a 5-speed tranny (manual). I did some quick research on ebay germany and it seems they are saying the 5-speeds from a 190e 2.6 will bolt up. Does that make any sense at all?
