Lately Iíve been wondering if itís time to part with my 1985 190e. I bought the car 2 Ĺ years ago because I wanted a Mercedes and the price of entry was quite reasonable. However, as I look at the things that Iíve repaired over the years, I wonder if Iíd do better by selling it and buying a newer car. Here is a shot list of repairs that Iíve made.
Aux fan switch
Aux water pump
Front strut to frame mount
Master break cylinder
Break pads (4)
Distributor Cap & Rotor Replacement
Condenser (soon- maybe)
Currently, the car is in good condition and has never needed a major repair or overhaul. All of the items Iíve replaced have been ones that normally wear out over time. And, since my car is a 5spd, which I love, itís going to be hard to find another like it. What do you guys think? Are the items Iíve replaced consistent with that of a 15 year old Benz?
