So, don't beat me up too hard. I bought a '91 190E 2.6 gasser this week. It has 99k. Everything works on it.

I haven't picked it up yet. I plan to use it winters while the diesel is hibernating from the road salt here in RI.

It is a 201 with one owner- all records, original paint. Accident cracked front bumper plastic, which was replaced. Owner showed all body panels and matching numbers etc.

It has the blue MBtex which I love- and I hear that the 2.6 is a reliable and powerful motor. Yes, I know there is little space under the hood and that the water pumps tend to fail with 120k on them.

Does anyone have a gasser 190? What experiences have you had? I wanted a diesel, but the diesel 190's go for foolish prices and I just can't afford them.

Anyways, it is a benz and that means fun driving and pulling it apart.
