however crappy they may be, i love the manly looks of chrysler and dodge cars.

If i had money and didn't care about resale and repairs, I would buy a dogde magnum or charger.

Cyrus, You must drive some these Modern day Diesels! they are at times better perfoming than some of their petrol siblings.
Im using the desi 280cdi for 4 months now, and, its Very Responsive, Enough for our conditions, and can be thrown around.

The 300C diesel uses the engine from the S-Class. More powerful than the E-class 280 sold in India.

Saw this one today near Mahalaxmi Stn...and I have to admit that the pics dont do justice to it at all..

man didn't expect such a statement from a teambhpian!
firstly if it was about the money, a diesel variant costs more than a petrol of the same car!
Secondly like Scooby said u really nerd to drive the modern diesels to know what u r talking about.

Its a time when petrol & diesel cars work as good as each other,so there's really no reason to sideline diesel engine cars. If a diesel Merc is at the top,almost any other car maker with diesel variants seems to be inching up to the #2 spot.
Everyone's making good engines,and the diesel engines don't lag behind..

Anyone know how much these cost?

I guess the 300, and especially an SRT8, must be a bit exclusive in India, but I wouldn't pay anywhere close to Benz pricing if that's what's involved, and having no dealers/parts must be a nightmare.

The only reason the 300C SRT8 is respected is its price -- it offers 425 hp in a midsize RWD sedan for a bit over $40,000 (and the Dodge Charger SRT8 is 425 hp for less than $40k).

Despite the SRT badges and other small accents, it has a low-rent interior with cheap, hard plastics, very poor visibility, and only decent handling. The exterior is also getting pretty dated, but if all you need is horsepower for the price, it's good.

Its gotta be a tough thing to deal with,having to replace stuff when you hardly have the brand name established in the country. Chevy's been around for 3 years now? Sourcing parts for the 300c ought to be one uphill task.
