Which owner's manual?

I was looking to order an owner's manual for a 1982CD from the MB USA website. They offer one for 1981 and 1983, but not one specifically for 1982. Any recommendations out there as to which of those 2 available years would be most applicable to a 1982 model? Were there any major changes between those years that would make one manual more appropriate than the other?

I would go for the 83. The 81 would have had the older style climate control.

Go for the '83. The '81 is non turbo and I imagine your '82 is a turbo.

I agree, 82 was the first turbo so an 83 would be virtually identical. the climate control push buttons were horizontal starting in 81, no longer vertical.
