I have an 87 190D Turbo that I drive every day. To me the 2.5 turbo makes the car. Good power and mpg. Small car that handles well but built like a larger car. Most parts are readily available except a couple. The radiator and condenser are one year only parts and very hard to find. I had to find a new condenser last summer and it was very hard to find one.

I just saw one on the road today and it looks stunning. Its seems like the right size, styling, and MPG that I've been looking for. I'll start the search.

Thanks for the tip about the rust.

I'm going to wait to find the 2.5 turbo, its gonna take a while.

So where did you find the condenser eventually ?

I got the condenser from a warehouse in SC. I spent a week looking for one online and this was the last one in the US. It was an aftermarket one and fit like crap but it did work.

I bought a new A/C condenser for mine several years ago as well. It was a custom-ordered deal, and took a couple of weeks for it to arrive. If I remember, it was around $400.

It still blows nice and cold, though, so no complaints.

IIRC, it was because particulate standards starter their ramp-down in 1988.
