it depends on your requirement. i was shown two cars that they had in stock. both with the sports package. one with the Xenons and Foot board thats for 78 lacs and the other with normal lights and no foot board for 66 lacs. the other if taken without the sports package would be cheaper. the wait is 3.5 months for a fresh order. i am taking the one without the Xenons and getting the foot board fitted.
the car has everything hill desent assist. airomatic suspension, 19" wheels, drive by wire like the S class and 7 series. the interiors of the car are to die for, the best out of all the SUV's.

in my family we do own a BMW X5 3.0D and the Audi Q7 3.0D. i found the ML 320 cdi better than both. if you are buying the car in Goa the registration and other charges would be less according to me compared to Bombay. my car is going to be registered in Silvassa so the cost comes down tremendously. it would be in ur budget. mine was for the Touareg. i have almost bought the ML the car is also here, just waiting for the foot boards to arrive.

features are ok of the X5 did not find anything out of the world. but way too complicated to use.
the white, black, dark grey. these colours suit the car alot and bring out charectar.

I agree - was following one on MG Road the day it rained the hell out of the NCR (14th August) and then I was alongside for a while - white one, a real beauty.

He was thrashing her through that water & potholes - don't think I would have done that though with a Merc

i plan to do worse with mine. here is how mine would look. it would be added with the foot board. they also come standard with the spare tyre on the rear door, just like the Touareg and the cayenne.

my friend i suggest you take a trip to the merc, audi and bmw showrooms and get the price and accessory lists of the ml, the q7, and the x5. then post your options up here and maybe we can help clear the confusion.
