190E 1.8 owners

Are there any other 190E 1.8 owners around here?

I ask this because I don't see a lot of 190E 1.8's around (Holland).

We got this car recently from my grandmother. It's build in 1991.
I was a bit surprised when we got it, because it only had a 4-speed manual transmission (and no abs).
But it had central locking.
Is this a too early 190E 1.8 to get a 5-speed gearbox or something? I know other 1.8's have a 5-speed.

Besides, what would it cost to replace the 4-speed with a 5-speed (it's making a lot of noise, you know).

Hoe gaat het met u?

These 190E 1.8's are really common in Jakarta, Indonesia.

I guess the guy did not opt for 5-speed. I'd think that post-90 cars would have the 5-speed (manual) ..gearbox.. versnellingsbak ja?

If you could find a wrecked 190E with a good 5-speed tranny maybe you could do a swap. How much, I'm not too sure sorry.

Tot ziens

ps. I don't speak Dutch :p just know bits and pieces..

Je spreekt het redelijk hoor.

Indeed, maybe he didn't choose the 5-speed. But when I compare the price paid for it, with the properties it should have,
there should be a 5-speed.
