Hi all found what appears to be original letter of sale/receipt in the glovebox along with the two data cards in one of the booklets although its all in German. It also has the first aid kit and tool kit

Hi,
so the car was bought by an Indian in Kaiserslautern ... that's where the Aussies played in 2006! RL (Rechtslenker), so it probably has been exported directly, as no German car papers have been issued.

Extras: Special seats MB-Tex dattel and Australia-Version ... and an extra strong "Tropics" battery :laughing6:

Regards
Thomas

Thanks for that T-Modell I figured the owner as an indian name, so I assume he was living there and ordered the Australian version and had it shipped here. Unfortunately my knowledge of the German language comes from war movies lol. I'm blown away by the good solid feel of this car. She will be 35 in February and the doors all shut easily with with a solid clump sound. I love it!
Cheers
