Just picked up this beautiful 190E 2.3-16, will keep you guys posted on everything I do to it, which honestly won't be much. Hello, to all the W201 members of MB-World.

thanks MercsDude, I will be doing a photoshoot this week, we had both cars down in Ocean City, MD for H2O international, a little more info, it has 98k miles, body and interior are mint, truly shocked for being a car that was in the northeast almost all it's life, the report showed a couple years in FL, still shocking, previous owners all definitely treated her right, needs the motor head to be redone, it has faded, and flaked away, going to restore it to it's original gloss black, came with clk wheels, and lowered to perfection, i'm putting in a good sound system this week, and that is all i have for now.

Nice...I was surprised mine did pretty good after spending most of her life in the NE also, Long Island to be more precise.

The peeling on the cover is very common...I would like to get it refurbished also but not sure which way would be the best way to tackle it, getting "factory" results and durability.

I've got the man for you! He did my E30's manifold and valve cover, and it came out BEAUTIFUL! It is very similar to the 2.3's with the silver lines, here's my valve cover on his instagram, http://instagram.com/p/ZLVQHSoHy0/#

He's on the forums here as well, he owns a 13' C63, he's in Staten Island, I had him do the E30 in wrinkle black, but for the 190, I will have him hit in gloss black (to replicate the original look, and have the lines silver, just like he did on my E30)

Sweeet. The E30 turned out fantastic! How did it hold up against time and heat?

Do you have your guy's contact info?

I noticed you are in the Space Coast region. How about bringing your German rides this Friday evening for Oktoberfest Car Show in Punta Gorda (posted on the "Gatherings" section)

It would be a drive for you but I could hook you up with a hotel room, plus we have a group drive on Saturday morning. It is a blast!
