This is true. And the ones that have been modified, the owner usually keeps the original parts so the next person can put it back to stock if wanted.

I know that's just your opinion, but every reliable market trend indicator that I've seen completely disagrees with you. Demand for these cars hasn't been this strong since they were still in showrooms.

I've given serious consideration to buying a 190E 2.3-16V Cosworth, but without a complete parts car they're just about impossible to maintain well enough to keep them on the road. Their lack of support by Mercedes-Benz isn't nearly as bad as Audi's lack of support for the QUATTRO, but it's bad enough to leave all but the most affluent owners scrambling for used replacement parts.

just gonna leave this bit here,


2007 - $3k

2014 - $10k

*both examples comparable to each other



There's no doubt the prices for clean late models will continue to climb just as the 510's have been doing for the past 10 yrs now.

The 190e isn't really comparable in my mind. No aftermarket, and the cars feel really outdated. Sitting in my cossie felt like being in a horse carriage that wouldn't pass smog.

Vacuum operated locks and a fuse box from 1950? Ugh.

Why is it that "Late" Models will be the expensive ones? id assume it would be the original early model euro bumpers cars rather than a plastic bumper e30

Funny, neither of these cars sold yet their prices seem reasonable for "one owner" SoCal cars

http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?t=119266

http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?t=126100

Maybe they are a shady seller? cars not as advertised?

Because the DOT early bumpers look terrible

Well I guess I am proved wrong, then. The early models and sedans certainly don't seem as affected.

Fucking hipsters and drifters...

the logic so far is that early DOT bumpers look terrible and apparently ripping them off and putting an mtech1 kit on my cabrio lowered its value....lmfao

I don't think anyone ever implied that.
