Yes. The first set is expected end of February/Early March

I too heard so.
Should see how many buses will be delivered in first batch.
I guess first lot will be deployed on:
Bangalore - Shirdi
Bangalore- Mumbai
Bangalore - Hyderabad
Bangalore- Ernakulam.

I was told all Ambari's will be replaced with Multi Sleeper.

"Enough" is an understatement. Except the front and rear panels, and the dashboard, everything else, I repeat, EVERYTHING is common between a Dreamz and a Starz - infact, its exactly the same structure, the same panels, the same glasses, the same berths and the same overhead consoles. In fact, even the Scania sleeper that they had built had the same panels. So MG has worked a lot on having the same panels - makes their production line swifter and efficient, and helps the customer get parts easier.

Yeah that is better. This should help in quick support to operators.
Infact parts should be shared commonly across body builders, makes it cheaper but then exclusivity and innovation can get killed.
As long the body is sturdy and comfortable anything is better.

No. There are close to 100 Ambaris, so its impossible to replace all Ambaris with Multi-Sleepers. From what I heard, they'd be getting front engine AC Sleeper buses shortly. Multi-sleepers would be a premium offering, as a class above Ambari.
