Quote from: CraigS on 02 October 2007, 12:42 AMCompliance date is not accurate. This can be up to 2 years in some cases from the build date. Example - the 6.9 from Adelaide that was listed recently. It is described as a 1978 model, but is in fact an early 1977. As suggested, a more reliable way is to check the horn pad. This is likely, unless it has been changed, to be within 2 months of the build date. Alternately, request a copy of the data card from Mercedes.
