Thank you all for your responses.
As far as the car goes I think in the end I won't be able to afford it. After hearing about the cost of paperwork as well as import fees I would have to buy the car much less than the asking price.
But I'll throw this out to anyone who might be looking for an E500 and is willing to deal with the import paperwork. There happens to be a 94 E500 with 50,000km on it!! Its in Alberta and was never driven in the winters. I also have some pictures and the car is perfect. If anyone out there has the time this might be a worthy trophy. I haven't done any mechanical research just the initial carfax and that is clean.
By the way I am not in any way related to this person I just happen to be looking for a good 500E and saw this advertised.
