My car is a 1985 280 SE (euro model). Would I be close to buying parts for a 1980 280 SE? From what I can tell, the engine seems to be very close (110.987 vs 110.985). It would be helpful to look up and order parts for the 1980 model as the 1985 does not show up on parts online. Does that sound reasonable?

Generally speaking the engine will be more like a 1979 or earlier US engine (the 80-81 had lambda controls). The car will be like a 380SE. There are various differenes like the pistons are different as the euro enfg has higher compression (or could). Some of the intake plumbing could be different.
