I can only agree with bstreep. My '88 300E turned 204k recently and it still drives like new. Best car I ever bought. If you stay on top of the maintenance and have any work done by a reliable mechanic or do it your self, it will not let you down. I've talked to a mechanic at Hoehn Motors ( MBZ Dealership in Carlsbad, CA) and he told me the service 300E's in 400K range.
Stay with it and you wont be dissapointed.
81 300 SD grey/palomino 168K miles
84 190E 2.3 black/grey 64K miles (wrecked)
85 190E 2.3 maroon/palomino 92K miles
88 300E desert red/palomino 204k miles
(made to look like a '94-95)
92 400E desert taupe/creme beige 120K miles
(converted to 94-95 E420 looks)
