1984 280 SE

Please advise. I have a "gray market" 1984 280 SE. I would like to know what US imported car this is comparable to. I would like to be able to get oil and air filters and other replacement parts for it without going through the trouble of getting German part numbers.

RE: 1984 280 SE

As far as filters and things, the closest US cars would be the 280E/CE sedan coupe, last imported in 1981. Not everything will be the same though as the M110 engine wasn't exactly the same in 1984 and there were no US cars with that engine by then.

Don't Scare the Newbie!

Flyboy - you'll scare him off doing that! [:D]

Its the M110 engine of which 412 gazillion were made. Parts are everywhere (sorta) - simple things (filters, belts and most minor stuff) are the same. Some differences exist due to smog/EPA requirements but no big.

Autohasaz is good, Fastlane and several others can make sure you get the right part - just tell them its a euro and have the VIN & engine s/n handy.

Do you happen to have the dual climate control in that one?

Regards,
Kevin
