Thank you Hanmust. the spare wheel at the rear gives it a more sporty and rugged look. i would be getting a spare tyre cover for it.

This is how the rear wheel and the boot lid look when opened.

I bet the security chaps at hotels are confused on how to open the boot, they probably have to make the cars behind back up.

Yes Sahil, they do get confused and stand behind the car wondering how to open the boot with a tyre there. They do know the boot lid opens upwards and have the cars maintain some space.
Forget that the normal driver for the ML was not there and i had to take another driver and he was wondering how to open the boot.

My father and me went to the Factory. The Highway and the Broken patches of road were great with the ML. We touched 180kms and did not feel a bump. I did some offroading with the car, thanks to the heavy rains and the Mud filled roads that were hard to resist. Sorry no pictures of that as i was doing it alone with no one else with me. The car was filled with mud, and the tyres had atleat 1.5 inches of mud as a cover. It was alot of fun.
In two weeks the car has already done 3000 kms.

Oh thats great, so you pushing the ML to its limilt. . I believe in the same thing, a SUV should be used as a SUV, not like a luxury car as most of the owners do. Atleast once in a fortnight or month it should be taken for a offroading.

I would not say pushing the ML to its limit but yes tried my hand a little. I agree with you Hanmust. Many people just buy a SUV to get a commanding view of the roads or to deal with pot holes and never offroad with. Common excuse being it is an expensive car. The car should at some point be used in the manner it was made for.
I was amazed with the capabilities of the ML. i was one of the many who was not fully convinced that the ML was a capable offroader but after my jaunt i was a believer. i must have tried almost everything with the car to the best of my abilities. the car just did not make a sound as if telling me "Is this all you got for me".
On our return one strech the traffic was choker blocked. i made my father climb and drive on the divider strech in the middle of the road for almost half a kilometer and then climb down on the other side of the road. My father was amazed at the ease with which the car performed this act and stopped treating it like his E 280. Now he prefers takeing the ML everywhere.
