Here is my 190E. A 2.0 auto from 1992, with brilliant silver and blue cloth. A nice original example, having covered a solid 86,000 miles, cannot wait to get it out of hibernation more in summer. should be fantastic to see it alongside the other 190e's at the meet I have organised for Saturday the 17th (MB World Brooklands). All brilliant cars surrounded by a great community of owners.

Yes a hell of a story and hell of week...
Car stolen on the 23th of januari after 2 guys from North africa came to visits the car because they wanted to buy... they did the restart copy the key in glaybar option... came back a few days later to just drive the car to Belgium.... I started research... police came on the 23th to make a report... and closed the case just 8 hours later... no suspect.....THEN you steal the wrong car from the wrong guy! I started called people here which i know in the W201 clubs.... asking if people know those 2 fuckers.... nothing... then someone told me just to contact belgium police at Antwerpen... just guess i called them and i had to email them.... i sended pictures and information.... i thought its lost.... then that week on 25th of januari i called all the cars that went to sale in holland which where 190D cars.., the first i called was the owner of the car that was also stole... i called him just 4 hours after his car was gone... same guys.....
Then the whole weekend i had pain in my body and full of angry! Then monday around 16.00 the 29th of januari... the police from antwerpen called me... they had the car... i thought someone is pranking me......
It was true, the next day i was there at 8.45 in antwerpen after a 2 hour drive.... the moment you see your car back is just amazing....

The car was 95% like it was before thank god!
My becker traffic pro, parrot and Yatur and pioneer speaker woofer under the rear seat was still in the car! They did keep those things:
some new bolts and screws from daimler,
some papers...
they toke Germany Mcdonals promotion flyers!!! they went for burgers i think...
But the pillow from my little girl was still in the car :) that was a relieve for me...
they did damage the way they remove the license plates so the 4 daimler plugs where removed :( abit damage there and the Tachounit was damaged.... i can adjust a millage easy... sorry but i know how to do it the right way to REPAIR! those fuckers just had a screw driver.... and the digits all have marks now...4... 3 and the 2... then you have a car with just 129.700 or something on the clock....
And the airvent frame broke....

but the car is here again.... :)

Sorry if some words etc where not correct ;) iam a dutch guy hehe

... and one helluva determined, gutsy and driven dutch guy too! Sir, you deserve some kind of award or recognition from the club for your efforts. although getting your treasured car back is of course the greatest reward. I trust the other victim is suitably grateful to you, and that the thieving scum are identified and incarcerated for as long as it takes for others to be dissuaded...permanently. Congratulations too to the Antwerpen police and port authority...they must see plenty of suspicious activity, yet backed up by seemingly authentic paperwork. Result! :)

Well done Marcel.
I would remove the 190D badge from the back and put a 190E badge on. That may avoid trouble in future.
Are you selling it? Stick an advert on this site, you never know.
