Bro there are more than two S 600's in Bombay. 5 or 6 If my count is right (forgot some of the registration numbers ). The car comes to a place next to you by monday.

I'm not sure whether this has been posted before on this thread or not, but one of the best places in Mumbai where one can spot a minimum of (1) S500/S600 daily happens to be Chowpatty/Babulnath/Wilson College road. One of the many perks of having your college down South!!

I beg to differ here Marcus. If you are talking of spotting a W220 or W221 then Chowpatty area that you mention. Even then you would have a tough time making out if it were a S320 or a S350 let alone a 500 or a S600. The S600's in a W220 and W221 are rare to see. The S500 not many in number.
These are W140's and they dont cross you that often. A weeks wait would get you to spot a W140 S500 or S600.

Yes they are not the original tail lamps on the car. It also could be that the owner has fitted a later models tail lamps onto this car. After market accesories and parts are available worldwide for the W140, but i somehow feel the owner has modified and fitted the W220 lights to give it a newer appeal.
