1986 Mercedes-Benz 190 2.3 16v


If you find one buy it!


Had to install new sparks and spark plug cables.

New fuel, oil, air filters.

New valve cover gaskets.

General Comments:

After bringing the car to Seyer repair shop. I can now rev to the 8000rpm mark.

The car is much much quicker.

Without the Cos-worth head this car will definitely fall behind the Hondas.

Air-con is very good.

The wood and leather trims are in perfect condition.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My only negative, but only a trivial comment with this car, 1986 MB 190E, is on its top portion of upholstery at the doors which are being partly detached. But as a whole, it is probably one of the most reliable cars in the world. I never encountered even a single trouble with this car after continuously using it daily for more than 5 years now. It seems that every owner of this car would never sell it just for the purpose of buying a new car.
