I was behind him for few kms , able to catch up with him . He was driving little dangerously . He almost had an accident . I even have a pic taken in my mob cam and its a new car . But later i stopped to buy some grapes . So the race was pulled off.

I was inside the state of Tamilnadu dude when i met the BMW 730d. He was lucky that an oncoming truck pulled off the road making way for him to overtake , else i would have had some " Crashed BMW 730d " pics in my album .

You wont pay for labor but you will have to pay for oil, fuel filter etc.

Other owners can fill etc.

well the free part means free Labour..thats a nice 1k rs saved.. but the filter is close to 2k, then some oil catridge..air filter and stuff comes to a close 3.2k total..and add a bloody VAT @ 12.5 % !! and i got my bill exactly 3.652k rs
didnt do alignment from MGF...me and my dad do the alignment from PITSTOP ..they are the best in cochin...there it costs 350rs..hence it does cross 4k.

@undead glad that things went well. here also that person was pushing to the danger zone.. i stoped to just call it off. there was a family inside, some guys are mad. when i drive with family i am extra cautious and wont even take the slightest of risk!!.

the truck doesnt know whether its a korean car or german car...in front of it..all will be crushed!!! frankly speaking i am more civilised when i drive the verna..

May be the owners of those BMW think that they are the Superiors on the road. But they dont know that Size(truck) makes a difference.
