technical reference...still looking.thanks to all who responded.

I'm in the US, purchased a 1981 280sl w/twin cam. I'm looking for where I might find a service manual in english, I do not know any German. I've been advised by friends to contact Mercedes in Germany.

Does anyone have any helpful tips. I know my car is considered grey market here, so the cd rom
versions are only US models available. I also wanted to get a build sheet on my car, so I need to contact Mercedes ? This is my first Mercedes, so I'm not familiar with this car yet. So far, this car is a pleasure to drive, and a lot of fun.

Thanks in advance for any help !

Someone advised me to get a 280E, or 280ce manual and that it might cover my twin cam 6 ?

A lot of useful links are in German, I might have to take a german course.

As far as the engine is concerned you can get a M110 engine manual. Also all relevent info on the US body/chassis is almost the same on this EURO version as well!
