most likely goes something like WDB201-XX-XXXXXX, which is the chassis number.
Typical for a grey market car, your ID number follows the European Interpol protocol in place at the time of manufacture. Official MB imports followed the "alphabet soup" VIN format we have all come to know and love...
You are going to most likely make an appointment with the DMV and have the car VIN verified, and complete some additional paperwork. You did not list your location, so it is difficult to speculate beyond the above.
