you are one lucky man. if i were in your place id consider it gone. its only a wonder how u managed to find it, and within a few hours at that! congratulations! im sure u are even more excited to get the car back than what you were 10 days ago when you took delivery. and one more word of wisdom: somehow this car spells good luck for you. dont ever sell it till u have to scrap it!

Lol. Maybe we should have some "This car is protected by Team-BHP" stickers

Though i think the fact that it was a YELLOW PAJERO helped it get identified by someone who Byram's friend had spoken to.

Mag, im not sure if it was abandoned, or hidden away somewhere. I didn't get the chance to ask, but the fact that it was found at Bhandup probably indicates that it was heading out of bombay.

Once again, from what i understood there were no wires cut, there was a mention of a possible master key (since its not electronic)

Sorry to bump this up again, but check this out. Another Pajero stolen. Rohan Sippy ko rona kyon aata hai?
Whats the damn scene with these Chors and Pajeros? A car costing 30+ does'nt have worthy security or its just that these Chors are too clever. Whatever may be the case, this is really shocking.

Rehaan: Good to know that you got the Pajero back. One lucky bloke!

It costs 20+ and not 30+ and also does not have any good security system.
