just saw on tv that a few imports have been held at the cochin port for what i understand is forging or tapering of chassis and engine numbers.apparently the cars are destined for mumbai.A prado and 3 or 4 landcruisers of which one of them was imported in the name of a Keralite.

Tuner what do you mean by bidding for the H3 ? is it in auction by the customs or what ? you can have any car dealer import one for you so why would you want to bid for one, the guy would end up paying more for the car.

AFAIK, The custom auctions are the best deals on wheels. A close friend of mine picked up an ML 270 CDi (prev gen) for 20 lakhs ! The only catch is that the custom officals are allowed to auction off cars if they are not cleared from the docks within 3 years.
But its really hard to find out when such auctions are happening.

No speedy.I meant he's given an offer for a H3 which is for sale with a dealer outside Kerala.i still dont have a clear idea about the transferring process.Besides if Hummer is making an official entry in India soon and they plan to sell the H3 for 40 odd, i guess it'd make little sense to buy one from these guys for almost double.I believe the H3 is gonna be a CBU if hummer sells it here.So wat makes this huge price diff?

I had met the owner couple of hours back..he told that he'll take delivery of the car after Friday prayer..the regn plate'll be KL-7 to get thier favorite fancy no.

Update on S-class:

So far 18 new S-classes on road, which includes 1 - S500, 4 - S350 & 13 - S320 CDIs.

Cochin - 5
Calicut - 5
Trissur - 3 (including S500)
Alappuzha - 2
Kannur - 1
TVM - 1
Kottayam - 1

M-class: Total 5 nos.. I guess all of them are ML320 CDI
