haha! well..i think he'd sell it too.He says he's someone who believes in being different.so if he sells it, it'll be for that very reason.So there could be a hint of a fact in what Hanmust said.Besides, another star had quoted him couple of years back that he sold his vehicle to differ from a star who acquired the same machine.But i still wonder what better vehicle can he buy now after the Q7.

If he sells the Q7 now, then I guess that his next choice will be a Porsche Cayenne....otherwise he'll have to wait till the lauch of new X6....

As far as I know, it's yet to be confirmed. There's a chance he may just get the S350. Let's wait and see.

Its a Merc Van manufactured in Pune. Originally Ssangyong, Merc brought it into its model lineup and thankfully discontinued it after a while.

Our company used bulletproofed versions of these for the Airport run in Lagos, Nigeria - that was the only transport they allowed us to take to and from the airport.

OT: Hanmust,is the Taj located close to MG Rd,Calicut? Close to 4th Gate?
I remember seeing 3 Mercs parked there the last time I was at Taj. Didn't get a chance to make out which ones they were.

How many Q7's are there in ernakulam ? I saw a silver color Q7 near LeMeridean not able to snap it.

Then a guy in TVM whos into some construction business owns 10 cars,some of them are parked outside his house due to lack of space.He has Slk,S-class,then som older model of mercs..when my friend talked to guys driver he told him that most of the time SLK is at ernakulam.

Has anyone noticed a tvm reg: SLK in ekm ?
