C. only after the customer sat down, removed his sunglasses, and was sighing exhaustedly.
D. only after the customer sat down, removed his sunglasses, and sighed exhaustedly.
E. only after he sat down, removed his sunglasses, and gave an exhausted sigh.

Pronoun Referent:
A, B and E are out on ambiguous pronoun. We cant tell whether "HE" is referring to the Owner or the Customer.

Parallelism Error:
In C, "Was Sighing" is not parallel to "Sat" and "Removed".

Therefore D is the correct answer IMO.
