Even if there is a chance, I wouldn't like to see such mockery of S-class. The owner seems to have something very strongly against MB lol:

In Germany almost all taxis were Mercs at one time. Looks like one of our chaps has decided to move up in life. And when you say "taxi" in India, a carrier is a almost compulsory. lol:

Horrible...
A friend of mine has this carrier thing on his Zen and everytime we meet I crib about and make fun of him :-)
Finally he removed it yesterday hehe..

Nothing embarrassing about that. As mentioned by others in Germany Mercs are commonly used as Taxis. The same in Holland as well. The reason for this is because of the solid build quality and reliability.

i sincerely expect to see wheat sacks on an s-class in the villages of punjab. wont be much of a surprise. and the person driving in a typical punjabi farmer attire...lol:

Did he also have those yellow ferrari stickers proudly displayed on his S class?

The white S is actually from Bombay itself and is in the hands of a person who has probably amongst the top 10 collection of cars in India.

lol: No they usually use Maruti 800 and Safaris for such jobs. I was surprised to see a non dealer service garage that specialised in Mercedes near Phagwara a while back. They had quite a few cars in for service including a CLK and a SLK. Loads of tacky american limosines around Jullundhur as well.
