My 190 always sits at between 2&3 bar on tickover, and goes straight to 3 on acceleration. A while back, it started to drop to 1 on tickover once it was warmed up. It turns out that when the car was last serviced, the idiot who serviced it (the previous owner!) had done the oil filter up with a pair of grips...hence it was pretty crushed. Over time where the paint had cracked off the filter it had rusted....and eventually split...causing the leak, which made the pressure drop.
