I ordered the longer one for 280SL and it fit ok. Always better to have longer than shorter...

If you are buying the wire to make it yourself, I noticed it is quite important the it is made of thin threads so that even though it is a thick piece of wire, it is soft and easy to shape"

The SLS listing says the shorter cable (1480mm) is for the 230

I may add, I have just looked through the parts list in the EPC:
- no LHD/RHD designations for positive cable part number
- funny enough - part number for 113042 and 113044 are the same

The difference in length is per SLS only.

I agree, it is better to be rich and beautiful than poor and ugly.

The differences LHD/RHD in parts numbers are for the brackets/positive cable routing.
