G977 EGM was my first introduction to Mercedes 190 (w201) 16v ownership...bought for a bargain sum, totally by chance, I never realised how hooked I'd become. Bought in 03 and killed in Germany in late 05 - this car had it all, awesome spec with some choice mods - also featured on Discovery Channels 'Wheeler Dealers' series....the true pinnacle of vehicle ownership!

As I said I bought this car by mistake, she found me. I instantly fell in love with this revvy Mercedes with its manual gear box and rear wheel drive layout and helped to found the Mercedes 190 owners club with some other choice fanatics. We do a couple of shows a year and offer help and support for fellow 190e owners. You can see our forum here: www.mercedes190.co.uk. I took this car to Germany in August 2005 and had a rather cool high speed crash half way round the Nurburgring - that place really is a Killer!
