1987 Mercedes-Benz 190e 2.3-16 For Sale in San Diego

As regular readers know, I’m a fan of the 2.3-16. Usually I don’t post high mileage examples, but this car looks tight and well maintained. And it’s no reserve:

Complete Everything
I just completed the 60K service at Hoehn Mercedes here in San diego since I was nearing 160K Miles. I asked them to go through the whole car and replace anything that needs replacing.
I had them replace any and all fluids in the car. Coolant, rear diff, trans, engine, brake, clutch, sls, etc…
They also replaced the rear SLS system with new parts.
After the work they gave the car a thumbs up for sale. I am going to miss this car, while it was at Hoehn the service tech told me they had a Mclaren in for service and many people were more interested in my car due to the rarity and condition of it. Made me smile.
I do have a copy of the Vehicle Master Inquiry too as well as the service paper work I just did.

Not my favorite color, but this car could be a great value if it checks out. I’ll update when the auction ends.

If you want a reliable, fast, fun, and economical car (amazing to get all that in one car!), this Mercedes 16v is the car for you. The car drives and sounds like a stock Mercedes 16v, except power delivery is smoother, the idle is better, it is more reliable than stock, and it has more power! In all my years of ownership, the car has never left me stranded and has always started up and driven smoothly.

If this car runs and well as the owner reports and has the receipts to back up the work, this could be a really fun car and a serious consideration if you’re shopping for an e30 M3 for sale! While I think the $13.5k buy-it-now might be a tad on the high side for a car with extensive mods and moderate miles, but the owner states his reserve is at $7500. Currently at $3150 with 5 days remaining.

Update 2.25.2008: Reserve was lowered and winning bid was only $7100! The pictures and description certainly suggested it was worth more.

Not a stitch out of place on this Timeless example of the 80’s Mercedes Hot Rod, Less that 2,000 were made of this wonderful Supercar Classic. And I would say this is one of the best. Original Sticker of $42,387 tells you why few were sold. Originally sold and serviced at Mercedes Of Manhattan. This is the real thing I will give the VIN so you can CarFax and see it was last serviced in 2/89 at MBM and hasn’t seen the light of day since. Rare opportunity for an equally rare car.
