Congrats VDI. Hoping the tints are done and the car ready for another photo shoot.

Was there a specific reason you didn’t check the Audi while you were about to spend 30Lacs.

Mouthwatering thats how I felt like after seeing your car

Take care of the car.

Monsoon season + Delhi to Haridwar = Moon surface + nasty bus and truck drivers. Good thing he wants to take his Swift. Best place to run her in is NH8 or NH2.

Cheers!

dont use high speed diesel etc. use normal diesel. the so called 'premium' diesels arent any better than normal diesel but just have additives that may harm your engine.

Im planning to buy a 2001 C Class, which is showing a Error on the dashboard.
Can someone tell me what does this mean and how to get this fixed and associated cost?

Kindly specify what kind of an error it is.

Is the car in question a W203?

I'll say just three words.

Avoid. The. Car.

The seller seems to be a bit vague, a bit unaware of the car he owns. More importantly, the W203 wasn't a very reliable car. These cars, along with the W210/W211 E-Class and the W220 S-Class are singlehandedly responsible for bringing down Mercedes Benz' reputation, as THE best carmaker on earth.

Previous and subsequent models are FAR better in terms of reliability.

I'd say: Get hold of a W123 / W124 E Class or whatever.

Or a W204 C-Class or a W212 E Class. FAR more reliable than the W203.

Thanks. I will take your advise. W123 is my favorite.

Please go for a W124 Sir, there are many available on Olx in Hyderabad. Go for one that was made in India, that way you can avoid all kinds of import related scams that might come connected with the vehicle. Also, parts are easily available in Mumbai, Kerala and Chennai. Automobile shops can WatsApp you details and you can have them delivered to your door step. If I were you, I would keep a 5 lakh budget and look for an excellent W124. Don't buy the first few ones you see, however cheap they might be offered for, please go for something that will look good standing next to your awesome collection. With you and the Mercedes, its going to be a mutual admiration society. All the best
