The low mileage Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 Limited Edition we featured back in September is back up for sale, with the Buy It Now price lowered by $1,000. This could be the lowest mileage 1993 Limited Edition out there, but is the ask still too high for a four cylinder W201?

While Enthusiast Automotive Group always has plenty of drool-inducing eye candy available, it’s cars like this 528 that catch my eye. As a lower-end model, the 528e was used for its efficiency and road-manners, making it an unlikely target for preservation. That’s why this 1988 with under 50,000 miles is so unusual, considering most of these are used up and retired, if not junked entirely. Someone loved this car, and it shows – the extensive paperwork, accident-free history and original details like floor mats and the factory sound system are all evidence that the previous owner recognized what a good car they had, and saw no need to modify it for drifting events or paint it flat-black in pursuit of being “unique.”

I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again: low-spec stock E36s are among the most under-appreciated commuter cars ever made. Is this car exciting? Nope. It is slow? With that automatic, for sure. Will it comfortably do 70 m.p.h. and give you minimal trouble all the live long day? Absolutely yes. This is a pretty interesting find, with only 37,000 miles and great-looking paint. Some new roundel stickers on the hubcaps will round out the OEM-spec appearances, and a modest lowering kit with a beefy rear sway bar and some decent tires will liven this E36 saloon right up, even with the fun-sapping automatic. Plus, for $7K, there’s not much out there that’s this handsome in the entry-level luxury market.

The low mileage E28 BMW M5 that Nate wrote up last week got me thinking again about what kind of cars would fill out my collection if I struck it rich. Certainly it would be an M5, but which one? As sharp as the original M5 is, I’m still distracted every time I come across an E39 M5 in my travels. Much like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this is the sports saloon that is just right for me. It straddles the line nicely between modern and classic, packs a punch with the V8/6-speed manual combination and has just the right amount of aggression in an almost perfect sized package. Apparently I’m not the only one who finds this car to be “just right” given the values we’ve seen for these Munich monsters.
Both E39 M5s we’ll look at today are 2003 examples, the first being this sinister looking black example for sale in Maryland with just under 30,000 miles on the clock.

After several relistings since I initially wrote it up back in May, this 350SLC is back up on the auction block. There was an claim that some of the 350SLC cars came badged as 450SLCs, making this car appear original, though I can’t find any proof of that – does anyone know better? Miles are very low, condition appears good and this would certainly be a fun package that would last – but the asking price is fairly steep at $19,000. What do you think this car is worth?
