REBEL..I'm from Kerala..U r very right, U've to raise the car for Kerala, but S-class comes with Airmatic suspension..even then, its better to opt for short wheel base if U r self driven...also I advice not to go for ultra low profile tyres, cos they r not good for our roads..if its Lorisner engine tuned, then be very careful while driving..try to find-out some open place to satisfy ur its thearst..

Saw this S500 parked in front of Taj Mumbai..Carneal red is a classy colour..I liked it very much..Its one of the three best colour according to me (other obsidian black & white)..This one has a panoramic roof, bi-xenon & night vision..

S-class has once again proud that its the best car in the world & it doesn't fear any competition..I was suprised to see the number of cars in Mumbai..within a few hours in the town one day I saw 10+, & it includes S500, S350 & S320 CDIs..I was informed that there is a S600 also at Mumbai with one of the Ambanis..its Traventine Biege colour & he has added a AMG exaust to it..Here r some snaps I was able to click

S500:

Daddar



S350:

S320 CDI:

The size of the new S is only understood when its seen with any other cars..see this one & the Innova at the rear and the primier at the side..its really a huge car..I had an experiance..I was following a S350 from Calicut..it looked small when it was alone on the road, but once it overtook or pass by any other cars, it looked massive..

Its from Delhi I've seen such a huge number of S-classes from India...my fren & Merc's Kerala dealer has told me once that, its Delhi have the largest S population in th nation..Within 3 days I might have seen more than 25 new S, which includes S500, S350 & S320 CDI. I couldn't spot any S600 even though I know there is atleast one in Delhi.

Here are some snaps I managed during the trip.

At T&T Showroom, Okhla...they are the largest Merc dealer in India having highest sales volume & 4 showrooms.








There was a S500 (w220) & W140 series S320 too at the parking lot.

Two S-classes & a Porsche 911 in front of same house..one S & 911 covered..all are kept on the yard out side his house & his porch is having an E, 2 Camry & an Accord too..there was guard in fron of the house & hence couldn't take much snaps:




On Airport road & at Domestic Airport
