Hi all,

So a friend of mine is about to import his W140 S600 to Australia from the UK (where I will be caretaking it alongside my W114 whilst he works working overseas).

He bought it over there, and is currently having some items tidied up at the body shop (minor corrosion repairs) before it's sent over.

The body shop has identified something strange.. Some is the replacement sheet metal doesn't quite look the same as what is on the car.

Further digging has identified option 19Q on the data card, which is sonderschutz ie special protection package. This is what we assume is an armoured car.

Does anyone have any sort of information about what this option code means as far as differences from the non-19Q W140? What parts were swapped out etc? The internet is very thin on information about this.

Thank you
