Report:

smell of a new car as usual, engine felt sluggish at 1000-2000 rpm
after 2000 the horses are coming out. auto shift + manual triptronic was not quite impressed(I used this before so nothin new in tech)
new specs is infra red key, tyres are 205/55/16 (this is for shanu) eagle gs2. quite impressed with the rims they looked sporty, semi leather upholsiery(spelled wrong) multi functional steering wheel, detects even brake wear, abs ofcourse , disc brakes on all wheels , and usual light and vibration sensors. they dont offer AMG (for engine) but only exterior. no xenons in 30 lks- I pissed off.

Ok I will post some more later on as regular drivin begins.

hey vulken, cool ride!!
but pray tell, what do you do? i might think of going into your line if it offers 30 lac+ cars as perks, heh heh heh...
but for an additional 8 lacs, you could have got the 270 cdi-india's most powerful and fastest diesel!
and yeah, merc does seem stingy on not offering xenons with a 30 peti car!
anyways, congrats, and wish you thousands of miles of happy mile munching!!

Smile Spare wheel Is a steel pressed

merc representative visited us today to familiarize the features again. I was Just checking the boot, gave a spare wheel which is not an alloy, also they have different nuts to hold that wheel yes 5 different nuts. also gave a couple of extra bulbs for all the lights in the car.

Engine is very very quite, you wont even notice if the engine is fired up. Just removed the plastics covers today, and noticed a small scratch on the car. hmmm. I will post some more pics of merc at 3000 rpm for now hehehe.
