I have been to Dubai twice last year, yes. Second time specially for the motor show in November. And man I had a wild time there. I'm not as blessed as you though, the closest I got to the Burj was by the gates I saw three LP640's whiz past while I was there!! One was orange, the second white, and the third light blue. Now THAT was a sight. I guess the orange one wasn't yours because all three had "A-xyz" Dubai registration and not a 070 !!

If it is possible could the title of this thread be changed to "The O-Seven-O Garage" to eliminate the possibility of someone typing 0.7.0 and finding this page. This is very serious i would be extremly greatful if this could be done. THANK YOU!
It's not working. Even after the title change if you type (٠٧٠) in Google this is the first page that's still cropping up.

Wonderful cars

Congrats on having such a great DAD! I wish my dad was like that, (Just joking) Give him credit for having such a fantastic collection. Thats a huge investment and I hope you continue to look after all these wonderful cars.

Would love to be in your garage, taking care of them. I love looking after cars, (my wife say's I look after my car more than her. He! He!) Well that's life.

Enjoy and have a blast.

Sure. Here's a picture of my white S class. I don't really use it that much only on days when i know im going to be drving more than 3 people around and don't want to attract any unwanted attention. Then a picture of my S class Brabus, this is pretty much the ultimate for speed and luxery. But the next car im going to introduce you to does the best job! I also included a picture of my S500 that we sold. And the reason it's painted is because, well let's just say i have a friend who gets excited quickly, and then he found a shop that sells temporary spray paint for cars. Enjoy!

Temporary or not, thats a nasty thing to do to a lovely car. No offence.

And when you say temporary does the paint wash off with plain water?

The black alloys on the merc -- bad idea IMHO.

Hey i agree i got really angry with the guy. Yes it came off with water i took it off right away. Don't worry, i care for my cars, i didn't find it amusing at all.

By the way the rims are the originals, but with a temporary black coat. I took em off anyway.

Haha, i just realized im a BHPiam and no longer a Newbie. Thanks guys, im really happy I found a place on the web where not one person has accused me of being a show-off or a liar. Means a lot to me.

Wow! As I read down the list of your cars, it read more like a wish list than something one person or family could actually own. This thread is like a dream sequence in a team bhp'ian's Hindi movie.

Do please also write about what each car feels like to drive and what sets one apart from the other.

Feels good to change your status from a 'newbie' to a 'BHPian',right?
It gets better as time goes by.. the Senior BHPian tag gives you such a high!

I kinda liked the alloys on the Merc. Black on black gives quite a classy look. IMO,though.

But that doesn't mean i don't use her to the limit, it just means that im nervous when doing it. Some of the shots are in Dubai, where i had to pick her up.
You had the 070 numberplate stuck on in Dubai too?

Yup, i took the Bentley-Le Mansory with me to Dubai to pick up the Lambo, didn't change the plates. And while i was there i put 070 plates on the lambo. The thing is no one bothered to ask, well normal people did. I mean the cops didn't.
