Yeah, true. As per Autocar, he's their unofficial SPY photographer! Btw, they should say that he's their official spy photographer. He's gets more pics than their team!

Hey, don't see why you should be sorry ! Keep clicking !

Btw, would you be in a position to at least comment on the looks vis-a-vis the version available abroad? Any visible differences ?

Tushky, you have shot the pics, you want to show them here, then there is everything you can do. Autocar probably reimburses you for the pics, so you would rather them have it first. Thats natural and perfectly understandable. I might have done the same. But dont apologise profusely saying it isnt in your hands, coz it is!

yeah you people are saying true..

well i saw the car from long distance.blue in colour.it was parked somewhere in Pune. it is the same car like the european one. 5 door hatchback. saw it from front. so dont have idea about the rear changes.i heard that they are making it shorter by reducing the size of rear bumper to save the tax.
May be you will see the pic in AUTOCAR jan. 2008 issue.

Well, I was giving a hypothetical example, perhaps incorrectly worded. My loyalties naturally lie with forum, I owe a lot to it. But dont persecute someone who chooses otherwise.

I do not think we should be questioning the judgement of tuskhy as he has the right to make a decision on whether he can post his spy photos here first or provide them to ACI. It is his call.

Default Linea - width

@moralfibre - are you sure about Linea's width. 1946mm? just to put it in perspective, civic is 1750. that makes linea very very wide for the price point.

If i remember correctly, you accidentally came across the car... and shot the spy pics. Posted them here. Which was real good of you.

However, tusky, i believe hunts down spy cars. He's been doing this for some time now. And i think he deserves his share for his efforts.

And, as for this case.. He has explained the looks compared to european models. So, its pretty much a win-win situation for him and us.

For all the hard work that Tushar puts in in getting the pictures I think it's purely his choice of where to publish them first. ACI must be compensating him for his hardwork & as such his first priority should be to them, where is the problem in that?
