Hi Nathan I take it are referring to the car Styria sold ChrisP as I have it on good authority that GB is a import from a African Nation . Geoff

Howdy Geoff,
i emailed Styria on an old email to ask this. i thought GB was an aussie. i believe styria had #460 which was sold to Chris P here in WA but havent heard from him in a while. he had some issues last i spoke with him and the car was off the road.

MT,  TJs car is wacky. the VIN is by far the lowest aussie one. but its odd in its spec, year and VIN.  i would just email MB Australia and ask if they have records of this car. surprisingly they can sometimes be helpful and they were the ones who searched to find out 227 were officially imported. they might even have pics lying around, who knows!! as for a badge, ive got on of those on my gwagen. it says 500ge. sure it has a 5 litre, but its not a w463 limited 500ge!

One day I'll get in contact with MB Australia about my car's history. Now that you've reminded me Nathan, I'll see what I can organize.

The European Delivery Program Badge was always on the car.

I don't know about problematic but I do know WGB offered his help. Don't know if it was accepted though. Geoff
