I still miss my 190e that I had a few years back.
Still regret the day I swapped it for a slightly newer C class.
The 190 was a great car as it could be fixed with a set of screwdrivers & spanners. More or less everything was easier to fix than the later stuff that always required plugging into a computer.

quite agree- good 190s are getting hard to find - i did look towards the C class - but the looks are bit too soft...
