Post Greetings from Africa

I'm Colin from Johannesburg South Africa.
I have been driving Mercs for the last 25 years.
Currently have a '92 300TE auto wagon built in SA where we have had a Benz factory for about 50 years.
My second car is a very unusual 124 model as it was registered new in '98(124 series ceased production here in '95) after having been imported to SA from India where it was apparently built from a Stuttgart kit.
The car is a 250D with a 5-speed manual transmission.
It has greater ground clearance than the standard models and has a slatted air-intake on the drivers side fender which feeds a larger than standard airbox.
The radiator is also deeper than the standard models.
