Except for the minor differences and variations, Canadian specifications
are very identical to US ones. I think you mean the ECE specifications
which called for thinner bumpers rather than the massive 'underbite'
bumpers on the North American edition.
Are you referring to 1986 R107 rather than 1996 R129 version? The 560SL
production ceased in 1989 following the introduction of R129.

Yes, Canadian bumper specs are 8 km/h ( 5 Mph) while US specs are 3
Another kicker is that most recent Mercedes cars are ineligible for
import from the US. Check the RIV website ( http://www.riv.ca/ ). The
ineligibility is not due to convertability problems but Mercedes'
refusal to do it. And the government takes their cue from them.
Any cars 15 years older or older are no problem because you do not
have to go through the RIV.
