Thinking about a 190E

Hey guys, I recently got rid of my weekend toy(91 supra turbo) and im looking for something to have some fun driving... what is the big deal of the 2.3 16V? Those are pretty rare no? Are they quick or are they well handling cars? Im looking for something to autoX

i would recomend a 2.5 16v over the 2.3 16v because the 2.3 timing chain jumps very easly and then bends the vavle not cheap to fix. but the handling is very good on both
