Thats because it wasnt engineered to be Right hand Drive. So isnt it obvious that i will not drive well? People ask me this when i drive my LHD Fiat too. "Isko Banaya kya?"

Liv2drv the conversion jobs are usually carried out half heartedly as the people know the car is going to be exported. i think you should be getting the LHD cars on carnet.
The same issue is with a person i know in Bombay and he just does not touch the car anymore, it is rotting away. We friends used to call it AIR INDIA of the roads.
I thought London is RHD, oh yeah they do not have this no LHD rule.
So whats next on your raddar screen?

The latest addition to the S-classes in Calicut. The owner is one of my best friends & their group bought three S320 CDIs together, black, white & carneal red.

These Debadged S-class cars are AMG's i think. Avoiding extra duty.

An AMG without AMG Wheels, I dont think so. But as it has a Dual Exhaust, Its gotta be a S600.

Doesnt look like it. But cant say. AMG wheels would give out AMG details of the car right...??

well i guess the custom guys dont just take a look at the exterior of the car and say ohk not an amg!!! and these tips are an option i think because on the s600 the tips are oval and waaaayyy better looking these are just looking cheap and i know this because i ordered these on the s500 and they are much wider and better looking

So i guess we will never know if the car is a 320, 350, 500, 600....Hope it is a 600 though!! More horsepower on the road is never a bad thing!!!

I feel its not AMG nor S600 since both have twin tailpipe exhausts. This one in the picture has dual exhaust only. So it should be S500 or less

This jolly well could be a S350 with after market twin exhausts. The wheels are options that you can choose, since the Panoramic roof S classes are direct imports. I have seen one S350 in Bombay similar to this except it had the badges.

It's funny that "fancy fast cars" are escorted by Gypsy King's !! LOL How much of a car's potential can one use when your escort vehicle is a Gypsy ?



Cheers

Dan most of these cars come to Autohanger for service so i inquire and see the cars. Currently there are two S 350's with Panoramic roofs, One S500, Three S 350's normal and one S 320 cdi there. I am not counting the older lot of S classes. There is a CLS 500 there with Amg wheels and Exhaust system similar to the S class in the Picture.
