Default Spotted : E320 with panoramic roof.

Hi guys,

Just seen this E Class with cool alloys and panoramic roof in Juhu today. At first i thought it was the E500. Took some pics and then pulled over next to it at the next signal and asked the guy if it was an E500. Nopes. An E320 with the optional roof. Heres the pic :



P.S : Today was another Merc day. Seen 3 R129 SL's (including one AMG), a C Class AMG and an E Class AMG. Pics will be posted later.

Can anyone confirm if this is the new E Class cos the front bumpers are different from the Indian E. They are very similar to the new C.


The new alloys that Rudra had mentioned in another topic.


The Optional Panoramic Sunroof

The alloys are to die for. The Panoramic roof? Yet another thing to go wrong in a Mercedes.

Hey,
Well,this car does look good.Everything bout the car,including the alloys are amazing.
The panoramic roof does`nt look that neat,but by Indian standards its sumthin different.

This car belongs to Reliance. THe number is very prominent and you come to know its a special number. Wont mention it here. I've sat in this car. It has a center console GPS also. It is a E500. Belongs to Anil Ambani. It had come to the Mercedes Workshop and I had sat in it over there. The steering has a faintish green wood and looks fabulous. the seats are both electronically operated just like the S Class with memory function. White color speedo and really silent running V8. It looks the same to me .. Maybe I'm wrong but this car if it has a first 2 digits of the number repeating then its the same car im talking about.

hey zklasse, the young guy sitting in told me its a 320 and not a 500. Actually why even i thought that it was a 500 cos i guess the panoramic roof is standard with the 500. But its optional on the 320 also.

Contact Webasto...they are the best company for sunroofs of all kinds and now avaible in india too. Not sure about the price but their number is all over in most of the auto magazines.
