I have seen this question asked many times on this board, but not of the 190's. I am looking at a 1988 model, 96K miles. Looks pretty good, but, I have reservations as I have only worked on my W126 model. I found some discussion on a few subjects, but nothing stuck out to me.

Are there any common problems to look for? (i.e. the dreaded head gasket leak on the 300E's, or the suspension on my 560SEL) Besides maintenance records, and the obvious original paint, original drivetrain, what else?

I appreciate the advice! But remember, if you talk me into buying it, there will be future tech help questions!

p.s. The best part of this car? It matches the color of my 560SEL perfectly!!
1989 560SEL (172k)
1989 325IC (122K)
2004 Suzuki Volusia LE (3500 miles)
2005 Yamaha Road Star (20 K miles)
