Some snap shot of Episode 2 with X3 on off-road test. It was really very exciting sestion of test & shoot, but sad part is that my cameraman had to eat some good quanitity of dust. Sorry buddy!

Pls notice in couple of snaps the front wheel of X3 is in air!

3.Good and cool(Fiat 500, VW Golf GTi)
4.Bad and cool(Alfa Romeo, Citroen)

I can say, as an informative Automotive program with proper specs conveyed to the viewer, u guys are gr8.

But dont stop yourself from that alone. Just tell the viewer how cool/uncool a car is and how its presence for them will change the way the owner is perceived in society.

Up for the show so far.

Thank you Grafin, will try to incorporate in future.

Great review on Rolls! I think this is first time on a Mal channel someone is reviewing such an expensive car!

@hanmust - I'm usually at work when your show comes on Surya TV, do they have a repeat telecast?

Nice show a good start.

Some negative pointers.

The intro imho is a bit too long. And during the intro the word "fly wheel" is said out loud 3 times which feels a bit too much.

Again this is purely my opinion.

Watched your show today. Its better than many aired on mallu channels and i am sure it will get better with time. Looks like todays was dedicated fully for RR. It would have been better to include some mass market cars that viewers can actually buy. I understand enthusiasm for high end cars, but i fear that viewers might loose interest if they cant relate to the show.

Regarding your suggestion, our project was to show case only premium cars, bikes & heavy CV, which channel approved after their study & they insist us to stick on to that considering the increasing viewership & viewers are happy to see some thing new & more exciting in the tv!

Haani, loved yesterdayz show. The RR rocked the show. I bet it's the first time a mallu auto show is bringing a RR into our homes. Thanks for the show Keep Up the Good work. I observed that you din't mention the price of the RR. Any specific reason or you missed out?

Thank you Anupam! Infact I forgot to mention the price. As you may be aware I'm mainly into business & its a peak time for me as we are in the completion stage of our upcoming new resort project in Wayanad. So so many things to be done in short time, more over I'm also started to cover the premimum segement of 'Top Gear' (Malayalam) magazine as they invited & wanted me to do from the next issue which the 7th anniversary issue.

So the time I spend for Fly Wheel's editing & dubbing at studio is after my office time, i.e., after 6.30pm to 1.30am or more. And we were running late to send the tape to Surya & we did the last voice over dubbing quickly at 1am, in that tired time I forgot to mention it! So sorry, the price at test was Rs. 4.25Cr

Hans,

One point I would stress for the RR review is about location! I am sure you could have done the shoot in some IT park or at least in some top end hotel garden. Why the road side shoot. :(

YouTube: part 2 @ 3.07: looks like someone sat in the back seat with a leaking pen!

But, bottom line, lovely show!

It was for the shoot of Phantom we had the most difficult situation.

At the out set, I had to do few correspodance & talk over phones to grand the permission to shoot the Phantom. The premission was given from Singapore which is the HQ of Asia-Pacific region with certain conditions.

As agreed we reached RR showroom at Aatria Mall, Worli. There was three Rolls at showroom to welcome us, one black EWB (test car), silver EWB & a 1940s vintage Phantom. The Silver is a customer car which is sold, but brought back since the owner's Parking area was renovating. The vintage model is kept by a customer when he took delivery of a new Phantom & he didn't had an extra parking for this old beauty. So its true to the saying that in Mumbai its hard to get parking even if you have crores!

The silver Phatom had diamond studded spirit of ecstasy which alone costed Rs.12Lacs or so (if I not wrong).

Meet my the sales manager Mr.Vikram whom I know for long time & Mr.Keki whos also my friend. The PR person gave me an agreement & told me to go through some 15 conditions, after reading initially I had a small pain on left chest. The conditions which gave me the pain is, after leaving the showroom untill its put back into the showroom, if any damage happens to the car, I'm solely responsible for it . More over they had some condition regarding locations, coverage, etc. hence we decided to move to New Bombay - Palm Beach Road.

Its was delighted moment, when Keki rolled down the Royal Chariot out of showroom for my show. I told him to drive as it was a busy time & didnt wanted to take a chance! Then later I took control & had a mindblowing drive & being driven as a king. Even though I havn't exploited it, I did 160kph in easy & the 6.7L V12 was so smooth! I don't have to say a word on comfort, ride, feel, etc which I've highlighted on my show.

The difficult part was two things, the super shine finish which was given some hard time for my camera-man Prashanth as the mirror like reflection was hard to shoot close shots.

But the most difficult was the crowed created by the massive presence, we lost somany tape due to the public coming in frame & background. But the Marati driver of Phantom (I felt that he is only designated for cleaning the car every now & then) who helped us to move them with the Marati local language & style!
