Hey,

Yeah GTO, i agree merc electronics are phenomenal!
when i was doing some research b4 the drag on the best way to launch the SL55 i was dumbfounded at the amount of electrical devices and options that you would never dream of that would alter the launch- from electronic torque converter lockup to wheel rotation sensors cutting the power automatically when u press the brake+accl etc etc etc!!!
and as i said before

Oops, my bad. The Autocarindia international subscription has increased to $75 since I was in the States. Still a good price though

Man i saw the 62 in the autoshow and it blew me away, what grandness...along with the phantom, even though i picked the maybach here...in reality i would have a hard time picking cuz the phantom is more royal than the queen of england..

here is a photo of the 62..





the damn back door is soooo big that once you are in your seat, there is no way you could lean forward and close the door, you have no other choice but to close the door with the button or have your shoufer close it for you..but i loved the swede (spellcheck) with leather combo..looks elegant..

cheers

I sat in the Maybach at the autoshow in Delhi, And hated it! Yes if there is one thing i would change in this world is the introduction of the MAYBACH! totally useless car..... dunno who wud ever chose this over a Phantom ... and after spending so much... no brand image...... just an overgrown S class on steroids??

Hey Vishnu,

He means hes not gonna donate any money to you if you get the work done by Mr. DC.
So indirectly he is saying..the more it costs the better...since he is willing to donate!
