      Merc does not provide any free ASS from the very first day. Minimum service costs around 30k+ and goes up everytime. Beemers not sure if they provide free services....though I believe the paid services are nearly same.

      I will take the Merc Space Saver in preference to the Bimmer Run Flats any day.

      I think you can take a 3 year or so of maintenance package in BMW's case which covers all your maintenance cost. That is peace of mind for that time period right?
      In Merc's case you probably will dread going to the workshop everytime just because of the uncertainty in the costs

      Very true. I wonder why they dont want to change their strategy for India, where some roads are quite bad

      More than the roads, service / repairs for the tyres may be impossible to find. They cannot change for India easily since there is no space for a spare. I know of someone who after one incident in the hinterland sold off his 5-series!

      I rather get Skoda or toyota for the simple thing, these companies (mercs/bmw/audi) cant make cars which can last on indian roads. Max people I heard cry in Merc or Beemer AS is about shockers and tyres. And believe me they cost a BOMB.

      As for MERC...the service cost doest fluctuate much frmo std deviation, it is the cost of parts that adds up on it. They have a centralised ERP system which tells them what for a service needs to be replaced and cost.

      No wonder, my friend got a C class 2nd hand for just 15Lacs. I almost bought a luxury car..then thought rather burn that money on para jumping over norway and rome...WOOOHOOO!!!
