[turb0mike] Sibling Rivalry... <Project Blasphemy>

Hi All,

As you all know I was in the market for a Merc 16V for the past 3 months. I had one in site, but that car turned out to be a piece of trash. A friend gave me a friend's number who knew a friend who literally knew a friend. This last friend has bought and somewhat restored 20 of these 16Vs over the past few years.

I went to visit this one car he had for sale. It is a 1987 Mercedes 190E 2.3 16V. It has 106k original miles and has not been driven since 1994. It has a clean carfax and a literally PERFECT interior. The kicker was that the car lurched under load up a hill, something to do with fuel delivery. But the great thing about a from 87' is everything can be fixed. I asked the selling price and he told me 5k AFTER he fixed the problem. I instantly said I would take the car. 2 months later and she drives like a complete dream!

Without Further Ado...




^My buddy Adam's CLEAN e30 325is. DTM galore!!!



^Clean as F***!!!!


^A little chipping

^400e BBK FTW!!! Going to be painted bright silver!

^New steering wheel swag!


^super RARE euro rear headrests!!!


^Recaro seats in PERFECT condition. Such dope bucket rear seats...


^ <3

Absolutely love my 16V. One of the most fun cars I have driven for only 167hp!!! haha.

Also, to make the mods ok with this being in the photo section, got a little teaser.......


And thanks to LTBMW for the new front poly LCI lip!!!!

Hope you all like!!! See you at the SoCal Euro GTG in SD!!!

I would say on equal pegging. I actually like the merc styling better.

It's unmolested and will be painted correctly. No more chopped fenders, haha.

Great looking car, steering wheel just doesn't go. Curious to see what else you have planned for the interior.
