Importing an E55 from canada. help!

Hi all, there's a 2005 e55 which I would like to purchase, but its in Toronto. Has anyone here ever had to import a car from canada? If so whats the process? where do i begin, would i have to pay import duty & what %? what problems might i run into? etc. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Unless this is a summer-only toy with super low mileage, I wouldn't touch it. You are buying out of a winter road salt... rust prone area and the hassle to import it just isn't worth it, unless this a very special car. You will have to pay import duty and deal with the stupid DRL's. In the end you will still have a repair prone and unreliable early W211, which may or may not be fairly rusty.
