Bought my 2.3-16v into work... Now I view the 190e as the last of the 'Weltmeister' Mercs - built like a Bavarian Outhouse, and it feels like it'll go four times round the planet on an oil change..
The CLKs, C-Coupes, C-Class etc we on the company fleet here feel so cheap in comparison I was shocked! Built to a budget.
My Boss's ML270 Cdi is 18months old and has been into the dealership 12 times for issues other than servicing. Plus it has RUST under the bonnet!!!!! 18months old!! I have less rust on the Cosworth, and thats 16 years old!
