Off the top of my head, I can think of one other member on this forum from Melbourne. He goes by the name of Manya. I can also think of another on the BenzWorld forum called Mike from Oz. There are also a couple from Sydney on the various forums. I can't think of any other Aussies though.
300E24V and hocky1,
Regarding the modification for the interior light, I will try to find the schematic for the additional circuit I made up. It operates on the regular (door switch operated) front interior light, not the reading light. It allows the interior light to fade to off after the delay period like the newer models rather than switching off suddenly. It also means you get the fade to off period after the ignition is switched on.
