Next time you're in Delhi remind me to show you a 28 L car with a 14 L audio system.

Its not about money bro, its about your passion. And true passion doesnt have a budget. It is just an ongoing quest for achieving that unatainable goal.

first car i saw when i frist arrived in mumbai was a 118NE (dont know what it costbut it was less than Rs. 500,000) with a stereo that cost Rs. 500,000 (US$ 28,000) then. The wires were from Tara Labs and it had a Yamaha DSP etc...it must have sounded good but all the owner had for demo were special effects. Sometimes we forget that the passion is in the Music.

I think over a price limit, its useless. Like having Veyron, not road to drive and no time to drive!

That's seriously over the top...if I were that serious about music I'd much rather set up a nice insulated music room @ home, you're supposed to have your attention on traffic while on the road.

If I were passionate about impressing people I'd much rather have spent those 14L on getting myself a better ride...

It does look like the gent is really passionate about blowing up $$$ instead.

No ICE box can sound good enough for 14L, unless its a promotional/demo car that will generate @ least 10 times more in revenues.
