Selling my 500E in the USA?

What would a 1992 500E be worth in the USA and is it worth it for a US buyer to import it over there from Europe?

The car has 180.000km, is completely E500 modified, has 18" Brabus lookalike...

I had to cut the glovebox out a little a the back but since the changer is in front of it it is not visible. If you remove the liner from the car it is much easier to fit and try.

It's 0,11% smaller.

295 will be too much for a 9.5" wheel I think. If you want to go all out take a 11" or 12" wheel with 335/30R18 tire!

My wheels have a 35mm offset and the wheelspacers were only needed to widen the stance, not to clear the wheels.

285/35R18 is only 0,44% higher than the 225/55R16 so it's actually a slightly...

Yes, the spare tire was removed.

There was no room for the tweeter underneath the grille and we didn't want to fit them in the A pillar or door.

Is the rear shock for a 500E the same as for other W124's with self levelling suspension? I doubt it but a reputable Mercedes parts supplier says it is. Does anyone have a part number?

The car has run 100,000 miles. The noise is on both sides. I don't know if the shocks have ever been replaced, I've got the car a couple of weeks and there is no detailed history.

What would be the rev limit in top gear for an unrestricted 500E? I got up to an indicated 262km/h (164mph) at 6100rpm when the limiter kicked in, so that's probably a real 250km/h (156mph).

The hood looks remarkably like a Mitsubishi EVO6 hood!

I wonder if they strengthened the drive train and transmission, I doubt whether the stock parts can handle 500rwhp and 700NM.
