Welcome. Quite a few Australian w116 (and 6.9) owners on here.

I have also recently acquired a 6.9, in Sydney. Currently doing the necessary work to get it back to reliable and safe state.

If you need any assistance, please do get in touch!

Agreed, one the most elegant cars ever made IMO.  I had the coupe in mid-eighties. Absolutely fabulous!  4 speed, Metalic blue with beige interior, coincidentally same as m y 6.9.  Had it several years.  I was forced to sell when moving overseas.  Drove well but body was pretty bad, nice from far but far from nice.  Basically reprayed bondo holding together the rust.  Still, it was a helluva car for a 28 year old kid to be driving around! Cheers,
