What????

begining of 07? didnt the CLS almost come immediately then why would it take Mercedes 1.5yrs to take out the S in India?

If this is the case then I guess will have to find a way to import it some other way..cuz thats too bloody long..

I believe the S320 is a SKD assembly as are certain versions of C and the E. Rest are all CBUs.

They have S320 I think, but its CDI, so how does SKD make a diff, would I be able to get it before or would it take less time to come to India than mentioned?

The CLS came immediately because it is a CBU.

New 'S' launch tentatively timed by DCIL for May/June 2006...
S350 will be offered as a standard car which will be imported in SKD and assembled here... S320-CDI, S500 and S600 will be CBU import ..
