But Nikibusa, a Maybach is a Maybach. I would like to know if DC's S-class has a good chassis strength

30 lacs for the s class stretch job

after seeing that someone in dad's social circle has ordered a similar one for a e class, he apparently bought a second hand e240 (new one) and is spend abt 15l on the sterch job

Interior looks amazing, specially with the Plasma/LCD screen, would be interesting to know (feel) how it rides...
Can't replace a Maybach though..

Did u ppl read the article in Autocar bout that stretch job?? DC's efforts were praised a lot, especially the way he wired up everything and connected the fibre optic cables to the touch screen remote, but BUT just check out the gadgets section of the same month's OD and take a careful look at both the touch screen remote in the stretch and the philips learning remote in the gadgets section!!! wht u say????
