    pinged into my inbox at work - I *think* it's called Modern Classics magazine, features this month a test between 75 V6 and the 190 Cossie. It really is a 'plus ca change...' review... the conclusion is now as it was when these cars were new 30 years ago; Head v heart. The review presents a...

    The 190 (not mine, obviously) has an interesting back catalogue of famous owners. Well until now, a good, solid, two. Ringo Starr had an AMG one. Almost eclipsing his fame and success, is no less than - yes, that's right, actress Felicity Kendall - who had the sense to order a 2.6 (very good)...

    This month is my sixth year as a Taxifahrer ;) This time last year, I shared a list of what I've changed/replaced in the last five years. Outside of servicing, here's what I've replaced since then: - water pump - new rear tyres - front brake pads/pad warning light sensor Somehow, I clipped...

    I'm not always too fussed on stanced cars, but by Jimny someone nailed this 190 just right - the wheels, colour and height. Just give the video 20 secs, that's all. So nice:

    Oh my, she's a lovely lady. Left alone and not used for 12 days, I was a bit concerned if The Taxi would start and, if it did, if it would chug, chug, then rattle with a gaggle into life. Turned the key to almost start it. All dash lights showed up and each one then pinged off one by one, bar...

    I’m not sure whether this post is a rant or an observation. I suspect the latter. I take a great deal of pride in my 190. She's a lovely lady, that gets treated well and with respect. In Jan this year, my mum very kindly let me borrow her VW Up! while my 190 was being serviced. A week later...

    What we can read into this video is easy :biglaugh: The rough sea lapping around them represents their turbulent life together, while the 190 represents the solidity, consistency and assurance they crave from each other when things around them in life get really tough and choppy. But that...

    If I get a spare ten minutes this weekend, I may try this - it looks really easy :biglaugh:: THE TOP 15 POSTS OF 2015(and of all time): #3- Update of Piper Motorsports 1985 Mercedes Benz 190E Body Grafted onto 2010 C63 AMG Chassis and Drivetrain Project | Car Build Index I presume they have...

    Maybe - just maybe ;) - it was my fault. Maybe I should have paid more attention to the road being damp while waiting to turn right to join a busy main road this morning. Gap appeared in the traffic, so I accelerated... and the 190's inside right wheel did a Wheely Skid. A Wheely Skid, I tell...

    I've been upgraded to a C-Class and a 'limousine', no less! :thumbup: Amused today when the local MB dealer fitted the QR Rescue Cards; probably for logical admin reasons, the runt of the litter now falls under the C-Class family. Makes sense I guess given a) it was the great grand pops of the...

    Let the record state that this sort of sheer hooliganism would not be allowed in the more refined parts of deepest Surrey :biglaugh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcSG4KbhsMk You would be forgiven for thinking the skid is in slow motion. Truth is, that's the pace of the car in real time :)...

    Winter was tough for my 190. Not washed or vacuumed since October; unsurprisingly, my nan's failing health had to take priority with many trips along the M40 adding more filth to my car. Sadly, nan passed away albeit peacefully on Mother's Day, surrounded by us and our love as she slipped from...

    I found a pic of what a 190 looks like after a 40% offset collision at 55kph. How the Mercedes-Benz W201 Paved the Way for Compact Cars Photo Gallery (Mercedes-Benz W 201 model series, crash test) | eMercedesBenz Couple of things to bear in mind. That's after a slam into a solid barrier...

    ...and this is what it wanted. New shoes. New glasses so it could read the road better at night. And gave the wiper piston a good squirt of WD-40. Ready for winter now :-) I have a slightly weird love of new tyres. I get genuinely excited buying tyres lol. There were four Dunlops on the...

    You all know of the one-off race Mercedes hosted with F1 superstars of the day at the new Nürburgring back in 1984; the then fairly unknown Senna beat them all. Some nice period footage of that race here: Ayrton Senna: Where The Legend Started - XCAR - YouTube I often remind my 190 of this...

    The Mighty 190 [Official Music Video] - YouTube This jokey video parody is rich with tongue-in-cheek references to McDonalds, rap, rappers, speed freaks and schmuck drug dealers scooting around in dodgy old Mercs...like mine. :lol: "If you wanna be the man with the master plan, you wanna get a...
