A good M5 with correct paper goes between 20K - 30K. I have never seen 3.8 but I'm sure there should be few.
So far I've checked, there are no 3.8 in Indonesia, not in Jakarta at least, maybe the Bandung collector (40+ bimmer in his garage) has one.

Jori Jori - amazing collection. Love and I mean I just just LOVE the 190E. I always thought it was a better looking car than the E30 M3.

Can you let me know what you think of the 190? What's it like to drive and to own? Not like for like but if you were to compare vs the M5, how do they square up?

I agree with the others on this post - you have to put the turbines back. I saw a board members turbines up close at the Goat Meet and I now think they look even better than throwing starts. I am on a quest to get my own. On the other hand, if you really don't care for them, I have a bid!

I should add the reason I'm asking is that I have been offered a 190E auto 2.5 16v for 600. It needs a fair amount of work though...and I would have to convert it to manual at some point which is probably more work than I can handle....but 600 !!! I feel an uncontrollable desire to rescue it.

Hi Chap,

From my personal experience 190E 2.5-16 automatic is a superb all around car much more so compare to M3 E30 & M5 E34, just a lot easier to drive. To give you my background, I don't track my car & more of a cruiser than a racer

190E 16V (present day ownership) vs M3 E30 (ownership back in1989), both are very quick & agile but MB just feels more solid & taut. For daily use I prefer 190E. But maintenance wise, 16V CIS fuel injection system is expensive & fragile. 190E suspension is also hydraulic & parts are very pricey. M3 maintenance I cannot say since I had the car when it was new.

190E 16V vs M5 E34, while M5 has more power but feels heavy & bloated. 190E weighs ~1250kg while M5 >1500kg. Maintenance wise both are the same (expensive) being a limited edition cars so parts are more expensive.

If you decide to buy the GBP600 car, I can refer you to a UK friend who I bought parts from. But I read often in many MB forums that "there is nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes". You may want to check out UK 190E site Mercedes-190.co.uk.

Here is the Fifth Gear comparison between 190E vs M3 vs 911 on Youtube

Lovely cars JoriJori,

I always had a soft spot for the 190E - especially with a tartan interior!

Enjoy them.

Another E34 M5 surfaces in Jakarta

Hey guys,

My M5 has been hidden away in a garage since 1998 , then the owner had a garage clean out sale. I've had the M5 only 4 days.

http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e34...an-e34-m5.html

We should have a get together of the Jakarta E34 M5s soon

Lovely cars, particularly the 911. I think everyone should have an old 911. I still regret selling mine.

The ride height on the M5 is way too high. Not just on the BBS wheels, you can see it in the photo with the OEM's too.

Unfortunately, I don't know the answer though but I would be getting it checked as the last thing you need is something like changing the suspension geometry loading and wrecking components.

Hi,

I bought the car 2 weeks ago from JoriJori. Yes the rear was a bit too high. I reset that to factory spec 445mm from top of bottom wheel to fender.
