These 5 spoke wheels are standard fit wheels for E class as well. I have got the same ones on my E.

The 5-spoke is standard for the Avantgarde version of the E-class only!

its not an AMG, all AMG's have Quad exhausts 2 on each side its the easiest way of identifying an AMG apart from looking inside the car and brakes. it looks like a s350 or s500

The S class is becoming too common in major cities. There is one in my building, one couple by some of my relatives, a few with some of dad's friends, etc.
Personally, I am not too fond of this car. It looks good but the interior design is a let down IMHO.
I would choose a 7 series or an A8 for its subtle styling any day.

Nice spottings!

Its better to have some masalas like body kit, new wheels, etc. to separate S from the crowd. Its such a nice & all round car that the number of it will go on increasing. So these are only a way to have the best car with a difference!

That's true, especially in Delhi, people opt for such kits and options to stand out. I had the a BMW dealer over at the office last week for my booking and I checked on how the new 7 is doing. He mentioned in the conversation that most cars they import in Bombay are fully stock to be on the safe side. But in Delhi most cars are fully loaded as demand for stock is lower.
