I'll bet if you explained to the German junkyard what you were doing, they'd work with you after you got back to the States in the event that you forgot some part from the donor car. I would also check to find out if you will run into any computer issues when doing this. This would be a big project, but if done carefully, the swap should be undetectable, and you'd have the car you want. Plus, imagine the puzzled looks on other M-B owners' faces when they looked at your car and saw the manual trans lever sticking out of the console. That alone might make it worth it. As you can see, I'm not much of an auto trans fan, unless the vehicle is a big luxury car.
Good Luck!
