WTB '99/'00 W210 E55, but have some questions...

I've just entered the market for a 1999 or 2000 E55, but I have a question that's been bugging me for the longest time.

For those of you who live in California, and have bought a car out of state from either private seller or a dealership, what are the fees in bringing the car over. I heard of something called a usage tax, which seems to me like sales tax being made up for the state.

In addition, I am looking for one for sale, preferably silver or black. Trying to keep total costs under $25K.

Anyone here able to help?

Who says Benz can't race???

Better late than never. I just purchased an 00 E55 with only 40K miles through Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I was fortunate enough to pay only $25.5K. The vehicle was located in Pennslyvania. There was no usage tax to speak of. Obviously, there was a shipping fee. Depending on how you have it shipped terminal to terminal or door to door; enclosed or exposed; this fee will run $750 - $1,600. Nonetheless, in terms of CA sales tax, registration fees, and documentation fees: the cost was $2,209 to yours truly...the DMV. Ouch!
