This is definitely not Reliance's car. That car has distinct badging of E 500 on the boot and has jet black tints. Also, RIL's car has "Avantgarde" badging on the fender, while this one clearly doesnt.
And EVO6, the 211 is sold in India as:
E 200K ( Elegance AND Classic )
E 240 and E 270 CDI ( only Elegance )
Through the CBU route of course theres also the awesome E 320 CDI, E 280 CDI, E 350, E 500 and E 55 AMG
The Avantgarde versions have Audio 50 APS ( with navigation ) as standard, not Audio 40. And the engine start on the gear knob is a part of the Keyless Go system.
I have news that Choksi has an E 320 CDI because he offered it to someone I am dealing with. The car seems to have supposedly come from Dubai so its obviously a left hand to right hand drive modification, and supposedly has only 7000 km on the clock.

This one isnt the RIL E. I guess the Reliance one is an E500. This one was an E320. And i guess MBIL offers the panoramic roof as an option on the E. Seen a E240 too a couple of months back in Juhu with the panoramic roof.

The new alloys that Rudra had mentioned in another topic.


The Optional Panoramic Sunroof
yes this is the new E. these alloys are offered as standard with the new E here and it even has a std sunroof...not a panoramic glass roof. the little holes in the bumper are parktronic sensors offered as payable option in india

The panoramic roof is not available as an option in India. It is an option only on CBU's. A regular sunroof is standard in India on the E class and now even on the C class ( Mid-June onwards ) The front bumpers are similar to the new C because they are of the Avantgarde package. Even though the new C has "Classic" badging, the bodystyling is that of the Avantgarde series.

Seen this line-up of E classes in Juhu. Notice the first one from the left has the panoramic roof.

Seen another E320 CDI with massive 5-spoke alloys and panoramic roof. Also had a chrome SP badging below the left tail light. Definitely not a E240 or a regular "Indian" Merc since this too had sensors on the front and rear bumper.

No, they're 18" Mercedes Alloys, specific to the W211.

Not Lorinser. Lorinser spokes do not start from the wheel hub.

This is how a Lorinse wheel looks. Seen on an S Class.

That's not entirely true. There are Lorinser alloys with spokes that do originate from the hub.

Check out the Lorinser LM6s for example:

Actually i meant this particular 5-spoke wheel which could have been mistaken for the ones of the E320. Sorry for the confusion.
