Well, if Behram or RedMM340 confirm it, that is good enough for me.

I won't do all those modifications, I never liked that bullbar anyway.

Dear Sharath - I got your SMS. My CL340 was rolled down on 24 December 94 in Kandivli and I took it home on 27 December 94. I registered it on 03 January 95 (to get 95 model). I once again confirm that at that time there was no classic in production in Kandivli. However, CL340 european export vehicles were made in Nasik from which domestic classic got born as a logical spinoff in 1997. These european vehicles were totally different from domestic vehicles, including different engine meeting the then needed European emission / noise norms and having European parts. These were beautiful vehicles and would be collectible items today. Vehicles for France (LHD) had rectangular headlights and a low sloping bonnet to confirm to 600 mm distance inner to inner between headlight reflectors.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
