Question 93'SL500 owner in Australia

Just purchased a car of my dreams, a 1993 SL500. Extremely well maintained but a few things that you expect to turn up with its age and not unexpected due to my research on the car. Searching for spare parts, I find that there are some relatively cheaper parts available from the US and interested to know if such things as the heat core and A/C evaporator are the same for the right hand and left hand drive vehicles. My feeling is that they would be the same design due to the basic design/layout of the R129 engine, position of ports, A/C pump, etc. Would welcome some advice in this area.

Thanks in advance.
