All the best mate.

BTW what kept you from posting these pictures for so long ? Or have you moved into this posh locality just now ?
Thanks dude.

Well, I've known these people for a number of years, but only moved next door around two years back. So the pics have been rolling in ever since then only. Had it not been for their association with the automobile industry, their cars wouldn't change as frequently and nor would they be as amazing as they currently are. Cars in the locality do include the odd Bentley, Aston and Porsche, but unlike others, my neighbours have them all tightly squeezed into one home!

I'm still working on my way to owning my exotic/supercar. Hopefully an M3 or a 911 in the near future!

Haven't seen the 430 since around October last year. They only recently got the 612. There was a new CL 63 in the time between the 430 and the 612.

Son: Dad don't worry I'm getting the 612
Dad: Great so you won't be carless...
Son: Actually dad there's a 2 month wait
Dad: 2 MONTHS!!! That's way too long go buy a CL 63

Now I know why it says "Love Thy Neighbour" in the bible.

Couple of months back, even my neighbour had a 1968 Dodge Charger which he was trying to restore. It's gonna be out of the garage in the summer.

Not all are brand new Also, in this country, most cars in showrooms come pre-registered with a standard UK plate signifying which quarter of the year it was produced in and also in which location of England it is to be based in (originally). Not entirely sure on this though.

Precisely.

This is in West London, Ealing to be precise.
