Supplied new by Monarch Mercedes, Tamworth, on 21st 1991 (I think that's the best year for Mercedes, when quality was at its absolute pinnacle), this W201 190E 2.0 Auto is still in incredible condition. Although the car has had four previous owners, which isn't really that many anyway for a vehicle of 25 years, the first real owner only (the first was the supplying Mercedes dealer) kept it just over a year, however second owner kept it for over 22 years. There's a letter from him in the service history folder in which he explains he would have never sold the car had his circumstances been different, and asks any future owners to look after what was his pride and joy for many years. It's crystal clear that this 190E has been a highly cherished vehicle.
Finished in what I think is probably one of the best colours for the W201, the vehicle is in absolutely immaculate condition. The paintwork is beautiful and has a deep even shine, while the underside is among the very best I've ever seen, in fact its still blue under there. I've given the underside a coating of Dynax UC, which is a clear anti-corrosion wax treatment, that dries to a translucent finish, so that look, now protected, is still retained. Judging by the bright orange colour of the dial needles, the car has obviously been garaged much of its life, as these tend to fade to yellow if the car is left outside.
All original books, manuals etc, warning triangle, jack, tools, and unused First Aid kit in the rear shelf are also all present and correct. The service history itself comprises of 18 stamps, and there's also a separate large A4 file containing lots of supporting paperwork, as well as every single old MOT certificate As you'd expect of a vehicle maintained to this level, it's is mechanically superb, and a real pleasure to drive too, and like any Mercedes of this era, has that "carved from granite" feel about it; a feeling no other car can give.
As I've been saying for quite some time now, good W201 190 are becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially since interest in the model range has been bolstered recently by what is being currently written in the motoring and general press, extolling their virtue as probably the best engineered vehicle ever made; that's some accolade, but one that is entirely deserved in my opinion; I certainly can't think of a more completely engineered car . I'm sure in the not so distant future we'll look back and wish we'd got one, while we still could.
In summary, a beautiful, incredibly well preserved and extremely well maintained example in undoubtedly one of the best colours for the W201 , and one that really belies its 25 years. A viewing and a test drive, will almost certainly impress any discerning potential purchaser.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected, and I work very hard to ensure that when these cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such, in my 11th year of doing this, I have many repeat customers and a steady stream new customers coming along that have been recommended via word of mouth…this is the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
Finally, I'm situated in Keighley (pronounced keith-ley), West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
