I just booked the 525d and am pretty sure that the price is 45.6 to be exact OTR Thane excluding insurance.

The 5 series is more roomy compared to E-class which is one of the prime reasons i picked the BMW over it.

sahil, each has an individual choice.
I did check out both options. and
1] found the response better in the E
2] the seating I found better in the E
3]cost is the same 47 on road thane. but,
4] E delivery in 1 week and Beemer october[so they promise]
5]The V6 oil burner is in different league IMO
6]E is thru with all the problems it had, while 525D is new to india so???
7]E deprciates slower than the Beemer
8]Service availability.
and the justification can go on just because i bought the E

scooby- I guess it does boil down to personal preference and we are both gonna be baist to our purchases so lets leave it at that

But,how did you manage to get a 525d for test drive? Both Navnit and Infinity motors have only the 523i and 525i respectivly for test drives.

and also the mercedes workshop is in my property so i guess thats an advantage. the octroi limit would also make a difference price wise mine is not thane registered. and above all like uncle pointed out it all boils down to personal preference
my next purchase would be an M5 so i would be less baist

Default Re: Merc E280 And 280 Cdi Launched !!

There is this well maintained 2006/07' E280 CDi (sold by MB India) in our extended family circle. Single owner, exclusively pampered at an MB outlet with around 80k on the odo. He's looking to sell on account of limited space in his garage. Which is his polite way of saying that he needs a newer toy . I am looking for inputs from MB pundits in this forum if this'd make a good second car for highway travel in India ? Are there known quality issues ? And what would be a resonable price ?
