I've got a 190e 2.6 5 speed and love it. I paid a little more than I probably could have but there was a long line forming. I'd have bought it even if it was in bad shape. My wife had a fit with me buying a ten year old car. I also got lucky with it having low milage (66,000 for a 1991 bought 1 1/2 years ago.)

Ask about oil consumption and if the valve guides have been replaced with the newer long lasting ones, thats the problem with that year engine.
5 speed '91 190E 2.6 320,000 mi. (new car, fast, smooth as silk six, couldn't find any more Peugeots)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.5l Turbo Diesel 266,000 mi. (old car, fast for a diesel, had 2 others)
5 speed '01 Jetta V6 (new wifes car, pretty quick)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.2l Turbo Gas 197,000 mi. (wifes car, faster, sadly gone just short of 200k )
5 speed '83 Yamaha 750 Maxim 14,000 mi. (fastest)
0 speed 4' x 8' 1800 lb Harbor Freight utility trailer (only as fast as what's pulling it)
