All I've ever dealt with are W123s and a W126.

You already know its a 201. They're nice cars. Nimble in comparison to your 123-126 experience. The Euro 190D I recently picked up looked just like the one on e-bay. Florida took its toll on the paint. I think the car is silver in the pics. It looks like cream inside. It probably really is a good deal except paint can be expensive, then again, you may want to try clear coating the upper damaged surfaces only. I went for the whole paint job and stripped all the trim, bumpers etc off of it. $678, not the greatest but respectable. In the springtime (maybe sooner), I will help it out a bit. I don't know if this is good reference but I paid $1200 for mine 1986 2.5 5 Cyl (not 4 as "yours" is advertised) 62,000 miles, original owner. I had to do a ton of this and that but I now have a near perfect low mileage MB diesel for $2600. If I charged myself for the labor, I may have close to $5,000 in it. Either of these cars should hold up nicely for a good ten years if cared for properly. I love mine, had several before, no inherent problems. Well maybe the wiper.
