This theory does not hold true always especially in the higher end category. Moreover that 1% is no thumb rule as a per service charge as they vary depending on the wear and tear. Usually the first service is the cheapest as only filters and oil are changed. For example the first service of an Audi Q5 and RS5 cost nearly the same inspite of the latter being double the price. The oil used in the Q5 and some of the filters too are shared across the Audi range. They cannot charges two cars using the same parts different MRPs however the labour rates differ- Q5 will be billed at approx 1800rs an hour labour while the RS5 will be billed at 2200rs an hour. Likewise with most other manufacturers. Hence maruti is the cheapest to maintain.

As i said,

"The cost may vary depending on the boxes ticked in the service sheet, life of the car and if any replacement or damage repairs come into play but it does give you an approximate figure. The Rule also does not apply to CBU imports"

And the RS5 is a CBU import never disagreed with the fact brother.

MBIL is cleaning up the S line up. The S500 is being discontinued, CBU already stopped as price is at par with s500Maybach and in all likelihood the s500 CKD is also being stopped as there aren't many takers for it over the diesel. Moreover the s500 maybach launch has further canabalzied the CKD regular s500.

I hope they launch the S400 hybrid to fill in the void that will be created between the S350d and S500Maybach

Radar is irrelevant to magic body control. It uses data from a Stereo Multi-Purpose Camera(SMPC) mounted on the windshield. The SMPC generates a video stream with a depth perception which helps in gauging the surface of the road ahead.

To give you a rough idea about the sensor systems employed, it is the SMPC that generates the complete profile of the surroundings ahead of a car. The radars(totally six - if equipped) will act as a scrutinizing mechanism which will further confirm if the SMPC has actually identified an object or it is a false identification.

Since radar is still in the process of being approved for cars, using SMPC some of the functions like Magic Body control, Pedestrian detection and Lane departure prevention can be implemented without the need for radar. However radar comes into need for Distronic plus, BSMP and Active BSMP, LDP with active steering and collision mitigation system CMS, CMS-Rear and so on.

I really wish the Maybach looked more distinguished from the regular S Class. The difference is apparent from the side but the front and rear look exactly the same

Agree with you Karr! Saw this one today and the only thing that made be take another look was the blue color - whixh I think is unique to the Maybach. Yes, and they should have designed the Maybach different from the regular S class. Just like how they did it for the 57 and 62.

A different look for S600. Check this video out. The S600 Royale. Apparently the only one in existence?



Built by Galpin Auto Sports. A mix n' mash of the old and new.
