...and does have some subtle styling touches to set it apart (not a much as the M3 though). The Evo versions were just that, evolutions of the original. We never got the Evolution versions here in the US, just like the M3. Check the link I posted for more info on the 2.3-16V. For info on the 2.5-16V Evo2, check out this article with a comparison of the Merc, a Sport Evo, and an Audi S2: Article


Considering buying either one, need some inputs..... Thx.

Hold on are you talking about just a MB 190e 2.3-16 OR the Evo? Assuming you're talking about the 2.3 liter versions...the MB 190e 2.3-16 just about looks like any other 190e, which is plain and outdated. The seats are far from supportive and the auto box sucks. It is a nice car but far from a sports car in my opinion. The M3 on the other hand is better in all aspects. It's fast, it handles well, it's luxurious, aggressive looking and a born race car. Not as rare as the 2.3-16 but much more desirable.
