Post Hi, new member today...

I inherited my Dads S380 SE 09/1985 W126 which I personally picked up from the factory in Germany for him. My wife and I drove it around in Sweden for 6 months before moving back to Australia - so it has a lot of sentimental value.
It has done about 270,000 kms and runs fine but needs some attention.

I am starting a restoration project which will include: repaint, engine recondition, new interior, and in particular new head unit with navigation.

Will be posting some questions on these topics in the appropriate place soon....
