Let me just say your guess is a bit far of
Did you found some AMG ? since past few days I am looking for something to replace my 7 and most of these guys - BMW/ MERC/Porsche - despite sitting on 2014 / 2015 early models are not willing to come down on prices - I saw an internal mail of BMW offering X6 at low rates but none of these guys are passing onto customers - ultimately BMW had converted all these unsold X6 as their own fleet cars :(

if such trend of traders continues , probably manufacturers should start auctioning / selling cars directly - making dealers only a logistic partner at prefixed markup to cover PDI / delivery .

wish I had money for

Looks like we are in for a GTO like unofficially official review of AMG. It takes 150-180 hrs to prepare one. But please reveal the secret akshay.

Wow that's one hell of a replacement!!! Congrats on the CLS63 Akshay. I prefer this CLS to the newer one anytime. Now the wait continues for a completely new thread. I hope it's already in the Assembly Line.

Thanks bud, the sound from this car is intoxicating. I haven't started writing a new thread, but will do so very soon. This shape really doesn't get old.

Congrats Akshay!

Truly the mother of Upgrades..is this the one that was for sale through the MB used car division at Shaman?I remember them having one that had done a low 18000 kms. for sale at a mouth-watering price.

Await your thread on this one.

Congratulations Akshay. After all your love for Bimmers, you finally join the Benz Club.

The W219 CLS is surely of the hottest looking Benz's ever and with that super loud 6.2L NA V8, it just cannot any better. Really nice that you have already started doing the car up, those smoked headlights really look brilliant.

Cant wait to see the car on my next visit to Bombay over summer.

Congrats Akshay! That is one hell of a replacement for your 320d. I love this CLS because of seemless coupe like side profile and with that monster of an engine under the hood, you have got yourself one of the best sedans from Merc stable. Looking forward to the ownership thread. Enjoy the AMG madness.

Haha I still don't consider myself a part of the Benz club Bimmers are still my favourite by a long shot. This one reminded me of an M, in the way it is wild. And that is the only reason I could get myself to buy this AMG.

I got the smoked headlights done again, since they were done perfectly the first time. Will upload more pics soon.

Congratulations Akshay. That is one sweet upgrade - to move from a 2L engine to a 6L one!

Waiting for your detailed review of this beast!

Best,

Right from how we suddenly picked it up, to doing the few mods I did. Each and every drive was brilliant, and had me smiling. It never gave me a single issue which would make it unusable. This is the car which made me go absolutely crazy about Bimmers and what they are all about. I really do wish I could have held on to the 3, and never sold it. But all good things must come to an end!


On a different note, I have found the vehicle which will replace this. And no, its not a BMW. But rather something with a three pointed star. I will get it within the next 2 weeks, and then reveal what it is

p.s - This is not an april fools joke.

Hi Akshay,
I just bought the new BMW F30 LCI 320D Prestige variant in Bangalore. I wanted to know what are the extra features i can unlock/upgrade on my I-drive and how I can get it done. Karan561 told me you're the expert regarding this. Please let me know the details.

Thanks

Hi Kiranjoshy -- Am trying to get 320D prestige variant in Hyderabad with no luck with the bargain, however that being secondary, can you share your experience with the car and what was the OTR you paid ? Thank you in advance.
