Benz is benz.
The insignia on the bonnet speaks about the owner before the owner even steps outside.
A 2006 c class starts from 2M and ranges till 2.6
Oil and filters don't seem heavy on pocket since oil lasts double than other cars.
Please don't compare the maintenance of your mark ii with benz.
Benz is heavy to maintain if something comes up. If you always have rs 2-3 lacs lying in your account and don't mind spending them on the car, please buy a Mercedes. You will certainly love the way w203 drives.
I am a die hard benz fan and shouldn't be saying all the above things those are a little tough to digest but they have been learnt through practical experience.
I am running a maintenance facility for Benz in lahore. Please go through the thread in member rides section titled The Benz Yard. You may find some useful info there.
If you buy a benz, remember not to drive the car for 15k km with one oil. Our environment conditions are not suitable for it. 10k km is enough.
Get the car checked on a scanner for any hidden faults that may not be visible with naked eye. Shahnawaz offers this facility for a certain amount. INH and some other workshops too.
I can also do it if asked.
If you have any other queries, please ask.
