"Value" questions...

The value of these cars is pretty much determined by their condition. I have paid as little as $783 for one with some rust issues and a worn transmission. I have seen "cream puffs" sell for 8K on Ebay.

While the 2.5T cars are probably the rarest of the W201's, they are still not impossible to find. I think there are 2 for sale on Ebay right now.

Great cars, 35+ mpg economy, and the engines can go for a long time (usually longer than the transmissions).

What is an "average" value for an average 190D 2.5T ?

Yep.

There is another thread (probably on the 2nd or 3rd page by now) about 190D economy numbers. 35+ mpg on the highway is in the "normal" range of reported values. I have personally achieved over 40mpg with a 5-speed 190D 2.5Turbo on a leisurely highway trip (traveling at the actual posted speed limit).

I would estimate that for a vehicle in "average" condition (which for this model might mean that there are some fixable electrical and/or vacuum issues), but with a rust free, straight body - that you might expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 - $4K. Like I said earlier, it all depends on the condition.

MB does not "rate" their engines for a particular distance. I have two 2.5 Turbos with over 200K miles, and there are plenty running around with far more than that. The transmissions usually cause problems before the engines ever do.

Here's a link to the 190D mileage thread.

MB 190D OWNERS -what kind of mileage are your getting?

fastest production diesel of its time, very peppy. Plus a 5 speed swap is a lot easier than the other diesels since the 190D 2.5 non turbo came with a 5 speed in some cases ( I have one on hand )

2nd fastest, same-year 300D is 1sec faster 0-60 and about 10mph faster top speed.
