re the car being a direct import or not, i was told by the owner that it was imported under a particular import scheme, just as he had done with his previous bmws and also with the cls. even if it were bought here and kitted, its a fab lookin machine. think the front grille should've been chrome, woul've looked real mean...what say?

Well, I'm not sure whether its a 220 or 240 but just know its a "regular" E class which was fitted with a lorinser kit.

The owner is eligible for bringing in cars under EPCG so its basically almost half price of what you would get them "officially" to Bombay.

Thumbs up

spotted a white CLS 350 on BMCC road in last week. MH 12 reg. - didn't need any guess about the owner - numberplate said it all.
BTW white CLS is drop dead gorgeous.

Nope this is not the kitted one. The kitted one has blue/green tints.
