Nice pics Hani. The big Jag looks and feels more exotic than the S-class.
@Scorcher: I think the Jag belongs to the white Cayenne guy. Its just a guess.

Thanks folks, no doubt definitly XJ look more stunning compared to S, but you have to consider that the S is five years old design. But XJ is now the crowd puller & show stopper with in 2 days experiance with in the city in the car. More over on practical side XJ has a low ground clearance, no rear seat adjustments, no vaccum closer for doors, no fridge, and lower rear head room.

The verdict is S is longer by few mm.

Vishnu, other models which give company for XJ are Cayenne, Pajero, 320d & 911 is in Cochin. Soon a RR-Sport will also join the garage replacing the Pajero.

Just as i guessed(low GC), but the shocker is the absence of vaccum closer for the door. Thought it was like a default feature of that segment.
So, @hanibhai, the S more practical than the XJ?

Awesome pics of the Jag Hanmust! And I agree with you, on the S. And this S320 CDI is a pre-facelift model as well. As arresting as the XJ-L looks, and as rich as it feels inside, I feel the Mercedes S500 is a better car. More space, and much more equipment in the standard car. But the Jag's looks alone make it a top contender. only in the front though. I think the rear looks very plain.

Default BMW X5/5 from Trivandrum breaks the State Fancy number bid record!

IT honcho from Trivandrum got KL-01-AZ-1 for his BMW X5/6(not delivered yet) for a whopping 9.25 lakhs. This is reportedly the highest bid amount for any vehicle number in the state. He has also booked a S, to wait and see which number he'll prefer for the S.

If it is Mr. AT, I thought he bought a F01 730Ld after disposing his S. Sold that or what?

I think the S-class would get AZ-1 because out of the two cars one is for the IT Co. CEO and other one for his son. So, he might be using the Merc and X5 would be his son's car. He has bought AZ-3949 for the second car since that's his lucky number. All his other cars have this number.

The key that you saw was indeed Skoda's. He got a Skoda Laura too.
Cans are some spares for the car. I forgot to check out it. Was busy driving the car that I almost forgot to check it completely.

Default interior pics of Bently that posted earlier.

Here are some pics of the interior of bently that hani posted earlier.
The leather seats are superbly stitched to perfection. The chrome buttons and switches are butter smooth to use.

The XJ looks too royal in the first pic. Is that a Toyota service centre?
