Very true the 3 definitely gives more feel and involves the driver a lot.

OT- Your dads love for germany surely reflects in the number of germans in your garage.
And soon another Germany will be added by the end of May and this will be a big one.

0-100 wise the 320d is faster but top end the Merc is more. The torque is a lot like the E280 CDI but after 130 the E280 is way faster and pulls ahead. Soon will try to race all 4 of them(E280,C200,320d and Superb)

No the 320d is faster on numbers. 0-100 8.0 and C220 is 8.8

Im sure the e280 will win hands down.

Why did you not consider the audi A4 3 ltr tdi. Test drove it .Was blown away by the speed. Its actually a huge jump up from even the e280 cdi. Its blistering fast . But again it works upto to 47 i guess in chennai.

That was our first choice but the Audi guys told us that Quattro's are no more sold.

EDIT: found some ppics of the 320d with the C Class.

Congrats on your new acquisition Indra! That's a handsome car.

Here are the last pics from Goa. The Cayenne had an 'eye' problem . One headlight was on, even though the car was parked with nobody in it!

The Silver Cayenne has a different spare tyre rim. Just noticed it. And i'm sure the Audi's original tyre got flat.
