Rezwan,nice one you have got there. Tell me, is there great demand for Land Cruisers over there, because I have seen only a handful of them here. I know that Kamal Hasan has got a Prado.

Nice ride and a great off-roader looks very good in black. The website is also great with lots of info.

thanks for all the nice comment guys! this generation of prados are very popular here and have taken over from mitsu pajero over as the most popular upmarket SUV...

Dhaka seems to be full of SUVs now.. from Range rovers to Porsche cayenne, LX470s, Kias, Land Rovers, Ssangyongs, Hyundai etc....

Nice ride!Petrol,i presume?I might sound like an ethist here,but does it guzzle fuel?It should, being a huge SUV with loads of power and all.My uncle has one in Dubai,and petrol is cheaper than water over there.I did'nt like the fake wood though.Heck,I don't like any of the fake wood trims so de riguer nowadays.I'm a member of your cool site too.How much does petrol & diesel cost in Bangladesh anyway?Moderators:I hope this is not too off-topic.

all the range rovers mercs jags, big toyota SUVs here are brand new.. only the mainstream family cars such as the corolla, allions and premios are reconditioned.. mostly only a year old as the govt doesnt allow imports more than 3 yrs old...

most of the taxis in Dhaka's are also corollas but the non AC ones are Tata indica V2, Maruti Esteem and 800s...

Lot of the cars here now run on CNG as well at it only takes 100 bucks to fill the tank up with gas and it goes around 100km!
