Update on the Mercedes Benz 190e 2.3 8v..and a little bit more

The Mercedes Benz 190e 2.3 featured in here has gone through quite a bit of work. Mechanically its pretty sound with owner Adlis K only changing whats necessary (oil, fluids, belts as well as some screws here and there). These old Mercs are quite bomb proof you know.

The Mercedes evo 2 wheels have been refurbished and in line with keeping things very ’2.3-16′ the front AMG look bumper gets replaced with a fiberglass copy of the 2.3-16 bumper. And then the paintjob – Mercedes smoke silver, which looks like gold, one of two original colours for the 2.3-16. Yes, the car looks gorgeous, and drives well too.

The interior is all that’s left to work on but the question is can Adlis K keep the car long enough? In fact he’s just let go of the W124 200e that looked fab with those 500e arches for a newer W204 c-class with the AMG Sport kit.

More to come later. A comparo between the pre-facelift w204 C180 kompressor AMG sport blueefficiency and our own C180 CGI blueefficiency may be featured soon! Pictures below -
