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..
Dude those are like one in a 100 chances! You cant really put such reasons to justify the E270 being their in the used car market.

1 of a 100
I know but i gave you examples, and stuff like this keeps happening, how many people live in bombay man..and how many ppl have issues, some one bought a car thinking he is all good and then some family emergency comes along and they have to sell it

or

they buy a car, dont like it, cuz now in 2-3 months they have hit a gold mine(a good deal) so they want to upgrade to an S or something but dont want to keep the E, there are tons of reasons..

I use to think the same that stuff like this doesnt happen, but we live in a world with too many many and too many things happening..

No buddy

Ppl do sell off cars after months of buying it .
Till date I have seen some 5 S320 for sale in Bombay alone.

AB sold his scrachless S320 , 3 months old to get the SL500.
Spiderman sold off his SL500 not more than a year old.

So , chances of getting a clean E270 CDI ( used ) arent really rare.

Nice number buddy 8! How much did u pay for it 10,000? I think thats the going rate for single digit any number of u r choice with the rto. Most of my cars have vip numbers but all 4 digit.. but this time my dad wants his E's number to be just plain number 1. Which will be expensive and hard to get but lets see how it works out when i finally get the car!
Interiors excellent but when i sat in it i was disappointed by the space inside.These same interiors in beige would look bloody killler! but those stupid merc ppl dont give it in this color u said and the 2nd things disappointing were the mags...but besides that everything about the car is topp nottcch.
Didnt they give u free matting?? I see those aftermarket clear mats u have down there ... they gave me really nice matting with my c-class when i got it.

dude
i got a really good deal - free mattings + plastic mattings + low intrest rate + body cover
we paid 20000 more and if u notice no other car with an ordinary no. has ta reg yet so i think 1 is possible
we chose 8 because it was a lucky number for next 20 years accordni to feng shui

oh yeah
be a bit carefull.
at times, unknowingly we have hit the cruise control button and all of a sudden the car does not go above the specified limit..
scary at times...

Yeah but thats mumbai regn mh-01-ta i wouldnt be registering in mumbai will do it in thane which will now be the new rto thing mh-43-a thats wat number i got for the last car i bought a few months back so i guess with the new rto opened it would be easier to get number 1 ..if i dont get number 1 i probably wont even mind something like mh-43-a-43 would look wild
So u paid 20,000 just for the number? pretty steep i thought it was 10,000which would make it double price of other 4 digit vip numbers like i have were all paid as 5000 rs

Cool pics lambo. Good u didnt go for the maroon one. I've seen it and looks quite dull. Have also seen a C Class in the same shade. Looked like a local paint job.
