hahaha, just when i thought about talking of brabus, my dear friend dom decided to take matters in his own hands...

Awesome pick lambo. Undoubtedly one of the best mercs to be sold in India to date, the best diesel merc without a doubt. Now all you need to do is, let the car break in and then go BMW 530D hunting pal.

Hey lambo,
Congrats on the car man. I like the way how you decided to buy a car that costs around 7lakhs(honda or viva) & ended up buying a car that costs almost six times!

Excellent choice buddy ...I am still waiting for my dad to pick it up... had decided on it just when it first came out then the waiting was too much and since i study in new york i had to head back so i convinced my dad to wait until december when i come back and then take the delivery coz i wanna be around when that happens ... But i am gonna get the same color for sure ...this is by far the best color...but i think i will opt for the beige interiors coz i found the interiors very cramped and beige interiors always makes the interiors look way bigger than what they r....also i find the mags really boring ..the car looks waaayy better if it had different wheels...did they give u an option? i wouldnt even mind the new c-class alloys instead of the ones they give with these.
Congrats once again

totaly agreed..ask any interior designer that..
I hate..i mean hate is a mild statement...black interiors..and even grey..cant help it if indian cars come with them..but I reject a car no matter how good just cuz it has black interiors..I will always want to own beige, stone, brown, red...these kinds of interiors too..

but this ext color is truely nice..

sahil
unfortunately u dont get this colour with beige.
only with maroon and black
the cars are usually my descision
we were looking for a new c then a pre-owned e220 then a preowned e270 ( yup there out already) and then finally we got a new e270
the waiting period for maroon and black is 1.5 moths and it didnt look v good in the night so we opted for this and got the car in 6 days

Nice decision.Somehow this color seems to define this car in a perfect fashion.

yeah man...some unfortunate incidences happen when you have to do that..

my driver told me that a guy bought a brand new E and the driver had gone to take delivery and when he got back he saw ppl mourning cuz grandfather of the house had passed away, so he was asked to return the car immediately and lose 2.5 lakhs in the deal..

stuff like this happens, another incident was a close friend of my dad bought the car, was coming back, someone hit it, so they sold it, even though it was small and again lost 2.5-3 lakhs on it..

unforseen stuff happens which you cant control..
