If you are thinking about importing a MB from Europe you might want to ask around and check with the Federal Government. In 1983 I imported a 280slc and a BMW 3.0csi from Dubai. It cost me $4,000 each to get them converted and a lot of time. With all the computers, and electronic engine monitering stuff on these cars I would be real careful about seeing if a Euro model can be converted and what it will cost. You could be looking at a bill that makes the car too expensive to be resold when you want to sell it.
