The Mercedes 190E was, if I recall well, the cheapest Mercedes model by the mid 80s, and so, a car that could usually be seen on streets. It is nice, but this decoration in blue with “Monroe” stickers is not especially nice. It is one of the most common decorations from this car, that was available from 1985 to 1995 and then again between 1998 and 1999.
The other two cars are actually the same model in two decorations, and I grouped them together with the Mercedes because they are German makes and their decoration is probably based on the DTM championships. Despite the similarities, it’s ten years between one and the other, so we see how the design (in general) has changed from straight lines, to a more curvy design, with rounded angles and improved aerodynamics.
The other two, as I was saying, are two BMW M3.
The white one has Warsteiner and Fina advertisements on it and is number 4197 was available between 1995 and 2003.
The second one in green has Tic Tac stickers and reference 4167, which was available from 1995 to 2000.
Despite the roughness of Bburago models in this scale, they have been played and present several defects.
