The price seems very good if it is in like-new condition. It does not have the "big Benz" feeling but it is a nice car to drive. I drove the 201 body few times and I liked the car. I don't mind to have it if it is in like-new condition in and out. I own 126, 124, and 123 MB (all diesel). I enjoy the 126 body the most. This is just my opinion. Some people I talked to did not like the 190E mainly because it is too small. But I think MB engineers did a good job producing the 190E model for a different class of buyer.
