If you itemize and file the long tax form, my suggestion would be to donate the car to a charitable cause. With the new dyno testing and tighter emission laws, it is tough enough to get U.S. versions to pass. You probably have a home grown computer stuck under the dash to control the frequency valve. If that craps out, where are you going to get another one. The grey markets were fine in their hay day, but the hand writing is on the wall. I think this car could bury you with time and money. In fact the money and effort you put in could go to getting you into a nice U.S. version. That is just an opinion coming from a 30 year factory trained MB mechanic.

Good luck,
