Need a bit of advice and hoping someone knowledgeable on here can help me. I have a 1990 W201 190e auto (petrol), she a very clean little thing but on 256,000. I am the third owner, the first owner being for the first 25 years of its life. I has full main dealer history until 2015 / 245,000 miles then the rest at specialist. It's currently in for a service and I have been advised that the head gasket has gone, timing chain is stretched, engine mounts gone etc (although it drove beautifully I only used to drive it maybe once a month at most). With all of the engine work that is needed and taking the mileage into consideration, would it be worth me considering a complete engine swap from a different Mercedes rather than fixing this one? I am not fussed about keeping it original, it going up in value as in my view these will not see an increase for a long time, I would rather have something under the bonnet that will keep it reliable and enjoyable to drive. So, what are my options engine wise? I'm pretty handy with spanners and know my way around wiring so not shy going 'balls deep' as such(!), I just want to know what the preferred engine/gearbox conversions are that do not require any / much fabricating / mating with the car. Thanks Note - W201 not W124!
