Merc 190E
I bought this just over a week ago and only done 187 miles in it so far but that short distance has convinced me that I did the right thing buying this rather than a newer "Beige box". (Not neccessarily a Volvo).
Note the current "Beige box" in front of the Merc.
It looks like a bog standard 190E with no flash bits or engine enhancments but it's really comfy and does the job of getting me from A to B with a minimum of fuss.
OK, 0 - 60 is about 45 seconds but that's just the way I drive and not the fault of the car, lol

Modification list
Errrrrr, Bottle of "T-cut" count?
Oh,I changed the aeriel to a manual one 'cos the electric one was goosed and fitted a new radio with lots of flashy light things, (No idea what the lights mean though)
Planned Mods?
New front carpets

Well, that's about it. Just needs a bit of a polish and we're off to Bournemouth later in the week. Probably do about 1000 miles before we get back home what with driving about down there and I've just noticed, looking at the pix, that I forgot to put the front of the radio in before taking the snaps, Bummer, lol
