The importance of this manual is that it's a rare downloadable one that shows a non-US setup of the vehicle in English language and it has instructions for those of us that drive on the right side of the car as well as for the rest of you that do it on the wrong side ;)

I have manual in Afrikaans, if someone is interested, just shout, will dig it from the storage boxes.

I didn't notice this until now in the euro manuals. The 107 illustrated in the book is two toned. First (MB) documented proof I've seen that the Euros are two toned.

That's interesting. Are there those that doubt the existence of such a thing? (My car is an original euro two-tone)

I've scanned and made a PDF copy of my owner's manual to save wear and tear on the original. I think there's not enough of these things in the public domain so feel free to download it from here:

(quite a small file but usable)

Cheers

I bought one from MB for my 280SL a couple of years ago.

This PDF should be in the EGv107, though.

Good score.

If you really want one you can get them from the classic shop for just over 50 Euros including the postage, I know cos I bought one last week :-(

Yes 49.90 Euros including 15 Euros postage and VAT!
Mind you I bid what I considered a reasonable amount for one on flea bay but it went way past my bid and ended up almost as dear as my new one!!

Interesting. Is the one you bought a reprint? Is it the same as the one here that I scanned?
