Looks like its a herd mentality among the film fraternity. First we had the Bollywood bunch going for Q7s and now the Malayalam film industry going for E Classes.

It seems like Anoop Menon has gone for a long drive after getting the Audi delivered. The registration number looks cool

Seems like malayalam actors are on a car buying spree

Mukesh taking delivery of his Audi Q5.
Manoj K Jayan also recently bought a white Q5.

I believe earlier it was considered like White Merc's are unlucky and film stars stayed away from them for a while, belief further strengthened when Suresh Gopi bought a white e class and was out of industry for a long period!
Seems white Mercs are back in action now

Yeah, looks like he swapped the stock ones with the clear glass LED lights. Those are being offered by Audi as a genuine accessory (link).

That's the 3.0 TDI. I think Audi has stopped selling Q7 4.2 TDI. His Jag XF was 2.2L and it's sold to someone from Kollam.

As per EISK's Facebook page, it is an XF-S.

You mean the British green color one? I thought I saw it one day at Holiday inn and it came with that base version alloys (the sad looking one) and single exhaust which was the 2.2 ltr diesel right? The XF S is the 3 liter one with the lovely alloys and the dual exhaust right?

As per an earlier post in this thread, he got himself a used XF which is the 2.2L model but EISK says another version. Member Scorcher would be the better person to tell you about this IMO.

Anoop Menon's first XF was a used, pre-FL model, black XF-S ie, 3L diesel. Then he got the british racing green XF 2.2L diesel.
