GTO, i beg to differ. SUVs or for that matter even MUVs do command quite a bit of respect and prestige in our country. i did notice quite a bit of difference in how people approach you when i go to places in a maruti 800 and when i go to the same place in a qualis.(though people do tend to prefer the GST version over the others)

dude with a budget like that go for 2 ford mondeos or if you are lucky you can get yourself an secondhand S class.
if you like offroading then get an endeavour an soup it up
dont get an merc ml as it doesnt have the presence of an suv and you cant do dadagiri in it.
you should be able to get a good 2002 merc e class.
but if you want some good deals contact FARHAN on 9820625883.
he has some good second hand cars.
even some sport cars could come in your budget.

i voted for the E (post 2000). but among indian mercs, i'd definitely go for the old W124 series. it's the last of the old-school mercs and is built like a tank. i love it.

then get a pre owned merc e class.
i noe the owners of both the dealers in bombay
when i went last they had a 1998 merc e class for some 18 laks .
second up would be a mondeo or an endeavour. loads of space inside and not alot of fun to drive though so poor driver.
try the vitara
the v6 engine is awesome .
a second hand X5 sounds aweome.
if you find one then go for it.
