Default Mercedes 190E

New daily ....

Always wanted an old benz so after looking for thr right one this black 1990 190E came up with all the right gear

Re built engine, new suspention , new replica wheels, clean history and a few lady owners that pretty much sold it...

After looking into the suspention i started to realise that its going to be an effort worth some thinking.... so in the process of working out some suspention set up that alows it to be adjusted not interested in air or hyds soo ill update that when i get to it but for now , new bilstein shocks and eiback w124 springs cut 2 springs up front and 1 and a half up the back.





recently had a shoot with local company SlamMedia ....

cheers ,

Steve

What kinda coils are you comparing the ride quality to?
Sorry, but cutting springs is just bullshit performance wise...but i can understand why you did it...

The Benz looks clean and nice nevertheless

well considering only two companies make coilovers for the 190e, and they're priced at $1500 and $2500 USD, i can see why he cut the springs.
OP, if you get some 400e or 500e springs and cut them, paired with billistein HDs you will have a much nicer ride. the higher spring rate makes them ideal for cutting and still retaining a nice ride. many people track with cut 400e springs, as they have a higher rate than even the stiffest aftermarket 190e lowering spring.

Since that he's low, having HD can still cause bottoming out. I'd recommend getting Bilstein sports instead. Btw, how are the 2 w201's? I haven't seen any updates on your cars for a while haha.

Very nice car. I've been trying to find a 5 speed 190E but they are very hard to find around here. And the two that I did find were beat up. Trying not to settle for an automatic.
