The Aus-spec's came out with Euro lights (and NZ too I guess), so people here are the opposite, they want the US lights lol

Congrats on your "new" Benz. I hope you enjoy many years of fun with the car!

Good call on keeping it all original. Euro lights rule!

Went for a rego check to transfer her into my name yesterday.

Was very nervous as I wasn't sure if anything was wrong...

She failed........

However, I just need two new front tyres... wohooo..

Nice car!!! Good luck with it. If kept up it will last you forever. They are that good.

Oh how I love the Euro lights on them. They are better than the US lights, because the US Govt. was successfully lobbied and corrupted by the sealed beam headlight makers to get their lights put on them.
