well, i dont have to but it would help with my insurance. we have too many drivers and not enough cars. if i get another car and put the insurance in my name it will be a little cheaper on me. well, ok i looked at several cars today, 94 Town Car Sig. Series. but the insurance was gonna be 1,4k every six months! well i also looked at a 93 Eldo w/ N*, havent got the quote on it yet but i am sure it will be the same if not more. also looked at an 89 Brougham (white w/ white interior) waiting on the quote from it. and i looked at a 1992 Mercedes Benz 190 E, also waiting on the quote from it. that Benz was nice! i really liked it.

I know that feeling, at one point in our house we had 4 drivers but only one car.

It really eases the pressure getting another.

I just happen to have a solution to your problems...I'm selling my STS.
(Refers everyone to look at the classified ad - since I paid for it) and that might be what you need.

You need to replace your CTS or you just need an additional car? If you just want a car to thrash and lower your insurance find some cheap 5-7 year old car, good thing to remember is you don't actually have to drive that other car if you are just looking for an insurance break.

Little being the key word here. Thats a lot of space to be giving up compared to a Lincoln or Caddy. It is nevertheless a good car but you may be able to find a nice 260E or 300E for similar money. Quicker and a bit bigger. The 190 is a reliable car and will be easier at the gas pumps. All 3 choices are good. Good luck!.

i cant afford more than 4k for a car. and the insurance cant be more than 500 dollars every six months.

FSU- no i dont need to replace my CTS. we have 6 drivers and 5 cars. one more will lower the insurance for me as well as my dad. my CTS i pay 300 dollars every six months, but i am on my dad's truck and i have to pay 700 dollars every six months. so that is 1k every six months. plus there will soon be another addition to our insurance so i need another car... cheap but good. that Benz is what i am looking at.

Destroyer- there arent very many used Benz's around here. i cant find any under 5k either. that 190E was very nice. it has 190k miles on it though, he's wanting 3,2k but said he'd go down to 2,7k... is that a good deal? to me it isnt that bad but it aint great either. i looked at a 89 Brougham and the guy wants 2,8k for it but i would rather the Benz... 2.3 4 cylinder i guess. how much hp in them?

Chad- i cant afford the insurance on an Eldo or a TC. i cant believe it was gonna be 1,4k every six months!

I can't believe the insurance for a big, boaty Town Car is more than the insurance for a Mercedes!

i cant believe it was that damned expensive period! a 94 TC is not even worth what i would have to pay in insurance for a year! i looked at a 93 Eldo with the N* but hell, i am afraid to ask what it would cost insurance wise. i think my safest cheapest bet would be the 4 cylinder Benz or the 89 Brougham.

4 Cylinder Benz or a Brougham? Brougham! Duh!

4 Cylinder Benz or a Brougham? Brougham! Duh!

you havent seen this Brougham, needs new paint, something is squeaking in the engine, interior is ok, 122k miles on it... the interior is nice, white leather but everything else is blue. also needs a new top, its not cut or anything but its rough and black... its supposed to be white. its alright though, i wouldnt mind having it. first thing (after paint and that squeak is fixed) is some 14 inch wire wheels and a 3 pump 8 battery set up. hehehe...

Adam
03-27-06, 10:24 PM
does anyone have any info on the 92 190E... like hp, 0-60, all that good stuff? i cant find nothing. any performance options or anything?

they look pretty nice, i really like it. is it fwd or rwd? it would really help make my decision if it was rwd! well, it depends on how much for insurance actually... but it would be great if it was rwd.

I~LUV~Caddys8792
03-27-06, 11:35 PM
RWD. I believe its a 2.3 I-4 or possibly a small V6.

RWD. I believe its a 2.3 I-4 or possibly a small V6.

2.3 is what it said on the back. RWD!? hell yeah! well, we'll see what happens then! i got to call my insurance company tomorrow and get the quotes on both. whichever is cheaper is the one i'll get.

I~LUV~Caddys8792
03-28-06, 01:05 AM
Yeah, but I'm not sure if the 2.3 is a I-4 or a V6.

Yeah, but I'm not sure if the 2.3 is a I-4 or a V6.

i didnt think MB used V6's til 97? i thought they just used inline 6s. or something like that? anyway, 2.3 has got to be a 4 banger. wonder how much hp?

I~LUV~Caddys8792
03-28-06, 01:11 AM
2.3 I-4, 130hp and 146 lb/ft.

HA! good, maybe the ins. wont be so expensive. 130 hp isnt too bad, i can play with that... wonder if there are performance options? the one i looked at might have the Sportline package but i doubt it seeing as it has a 2.3 and i am sure the sportline would have the 2.6. it has different wheels that arent aftermarket, im sure of that cause its got the symbols in the middle of the wheels.

Cosworth did a HOT version of the 190E, because of that I would assume there is potential for performance parts.

Mercedes Benz 190E Cosworth. They're stupidly expensive IIRC, and the insurance will be worse, but it just shows that there's some potential.
