2005 E350 in most likelyhood is an import, reason being the MBIL E350's were launched after the facelift. But yes buying them with additional duty would really make no sense at any cost considering the C will then cross the figure of 20L which is close to what one could get a much newer model for.

On a side note, why are they selling them? Moving onto BMW? Wise choice if thats the case!!

Taking the cue, quickly exited the MB idea. Now, looking at Automatic Corolla Altis through the CSD. Not sure abt the issues with 4-speed auto transmission!! Thats why havent ruled out manual Altis yet!

Default Re: Mercs for sale from German Embassy - Chennai.

I'm about to buy an embassy car in Delhi.. They inform me that a duty of 12% will have to be paid on the value at which the car was bought by the embassy.
The car being a Toyota Camry (2002) model, I guess the duty will come out to be approx. INR 1,40,000.

Any of you know of any trustworthy agents in Delhi who can facilitate with duties & registration?
Will Road Tax also have be paid additionaly?

hi. the german embassy in Delhi is selling a 1996 Mercedes G Wagen. the car has a 115k miles on the odo, is white in color & is well kept. the price being asked for it is Rs.23L + transfer costs + OTT (to convert CD plates to normal). ipersonally velieve its way out of whack. Assuming the cost was Rs1Cr when new the car should have a book value of no more than 6-7 Lakhs tops. can someone advise in detail.
