It appears to be a built for the local market car and not a private or UK import .. at least according to the VIN plates, dealer info and options card. Thank for your input!
Yes I'm a happy 'New Yorker Down Under' living in Bowral not far from the Bradman Oval / museum in fact, I drive by it daily on my way to Bong Bong Street to serve my caffeine addiction in one of the great cafes here and no, I'm not kidding for those who have never been here... the main street in Bowral is named Bong Bong St!
I like to think of Don Bradman as the Babe Ruth of the antipodes! Too bad he didn't play baseball 'The Boy from Bowral' might have made enough money to afford to buy a home now in the town he helped make famous!
I get to Canberra on business often too as it is just a dawdle down the road made even more enjoyable on those 'SLK days' with top down and Stereo blasting! Takes me less than 2 hours to do 170km or approximately the same time to drive 20 miles in rush hour Manhattan!
Thank again 'mate'!
