Hello. I thought Iíd show everyone my new 1989 190e 2.0. I bought her for the grand total of £510 with 12 months tax and 2 months MOT (but I am assured there is nothing to worry about when itís up), which I thought was an absolute steal!
By the looks of things she has been garaged most of her life, there is not a scratch on bodywork and no rust what-so-ever. The only small problems I have found so far is a slightly worn driverís seat bolster (which is expected) and the rear driverís side window gets jammed after about 1cm of movement. You can hear the motor buzzing, but nothing happens?
There is 171,000 on the clock, but it has been serviced regularly and drives lovely. I have service History up to 150,000.
Iím just getting my head around the fact the lights are in an unconventional position and the indicator stalk is on the opposite side. And it took me ages to find the windscreen wiper controls.

Why a saloon? I have a kid on the way and space will be everything.

All it needs is -40mm and some new rims. Also the cosworth spoiler.













The ebay photos donít do her much justice, Iíll get some better photos up once Iíve clayed her.

lol

The exhaust was only hanging off because I was using the karibina that was holding it to the car for climbing. I fitted back on before I drove off.
