Kishan, why are you in two minds? Keep the all coming. The more the better. Who doesnot want to see, what do our neighbours ride.

Is this the general trend or is this more like spotting an exotic. never knew that our neighbors are so rich!

OT and i see the number plates are all in Bangla, is it legal?

Post cars that are used everyday. That is where the differences will be. Exotics are same everywhere

Thanks for your positive feedback guys.Now to answer couple of your queries

No not all cars here are everyday cars,but the celica,altezza,lancer ex are very common.

It is not illegal to have Bengali plates.

Yes the cars are old as the pictures are quite old(haven't been there for almost two years now)

Yes it is not India it is Bangladesh(BD)

A few interesting things to note,

* All the plates are in Bangla so it must be the only allowed language to have the plates in

* Each of the plate says Dhaka; so all these exoticas are actually located in/around Dhaka which is how actually it truly is in terms of spread of the wealth

* Some of the cars even have plates that say Dhaka Metro... Now what kind of classification is that?

About the last point, Initially I thought just like some people write Andhra Pradesh or Maharashtra etc in their plates here probably people in BD like to spell out Dhaka. But no... so many others say Dhaka Metro! Looks like its a classification... Probably just Dhaka is equivalent to say Dhaka suburbs or rural or some such?
