      Its E220 petrol, it been repainted with iridium silver found in newer merc's. Indian E220/E250's are de-tuned and speed limited to 180 Km/h, for which handling and braking is adequate, I don't have a enough experience with other cars for comparo though. If it is not up-to the mark and you have money, then there are bolt on parts from famous tuners on this planet. It is same the platform that ran the legendary AMG Hammer or the Porsche built E 500 with engine capacity varying from 2 lts to 7.3 lts.
      If it Ain't Broke...Break It! Make It Better!

      Your car is one of the best 124 i have ever seen and so is your paint job

      PS with mercs handling ,braking etc will it keep up with Tadu s elantra.

      Who is maintaining the car ,merc or outside guys and where did you get it painted and cost?

      I guess its a driver thing, Euro spec E220 has 150bhp with 210nm of torque and can hit 210 Km/h.

      Me and Merc , Painting was done in showroom and I would give them 4/10, for my expectation it was poor job.

      This is like asking God to punish you for all the sins you committed, You should be asking God shower me with all that I need to maintain Mercedes Benz (read money, patience, good technicians etc).
