That is a must have, do it! Renee and I have always been on the lookout for one, but they always come up at the wrong time.

Thanks!  Me too...Hopefully I'll know within the next week or so if he's inclined to trade.  If so, we'll make a weekend out of it and take the rig out and pick it up.

I always like the old school baby benz, and this one has huge potential once it's back to mint condition.

Nice looking car Ian.  My neighbor across the street had one when I was in high school.  I always thought they were pretty neat baby benzes.  

only one word of caution though and that is to remember that it is a 20 year old car now, that'll make parts and repairs a little harder and you'll likely have to look at all the rubber items on the car to be sure they are in good condition, as full replacements can get awfully spendy.  good news is that in another 5 years you can get collector plates for it.   :wink:

Ian, you NEED to check out the Feb 2007 issue of Automobile.  they test both a 1987 190E 2.3-16 and a 1988 M3.

awesome article titled Second-hand thrills about "two performance icons of the 80's."

Sweet.
