No No NO..!!

I had seen this car in person in my rear view mirror. Suspected it to be a 5 series but then dismissed the thought thinking, "who would do it to that beauty..!!" . And here it is, and IT IS A 5 series.

This makes me real sad. And trust me, I did not feel this sad even when my company gave me 0% increment.

Something is not right in this Fiesta's wiper sweep. Two left hand side wiper arms/blades makies this a whacky mod or penny pinching?

Hello Sachinayak,

Beg to differ sir, & absolutely NOM.

Though this looks weird, but this guy (robot) is doing a great job to control the traffic the this square at Indore's ring road. Except, if someone wants to completely ignore the traffic rules & skip the signal; there are cameras installed facing the direction of traffic on all four sides, to catch & post the challan directly to home for any offenders where this guy is posted. There are quiet a few unruly lot in Indore.
Driving around in Pune, I have developed full sympathy for the cops & volunteers who control the traffic in Hinjewadi area, (for that matter this could be applicable all over India.) Standing throughout the day inhaling the toxic smoke of our car to insure no traffic blockages. This Bot is clearly a very good alternate. Cops stand at a corner, to catch if too many want to play extra smart.

Regards,
Saurabh

Found this satin blue wrapped with cross black stripped on the other wise elegant looking New Honda City a bid weird. Even the wrap was not done up properly. I remember seeing the same car wrapped in Satin Red a year back, with no black cross stripes though!!!

Found on OLX. Also check the seller name, wannabe car wannabe owner. Donor car could be a Chevy Optra. Lot of effort put in to it, but still looks weird. Description reads - 'replica of ford mustang eleanor'.

If this guy cannot afford a mirror for his Laura, he really shouldn't be driving one

I guess he didn't have the patience to wait for one. After all even fast delivery in Volkswagen and Skoda speak means at least 14 days.

There are two sides of a story. From the photo I can see that the guy is wearing sealbelt and sticking to his lane. Maybe this is his only car and I think its better to have a temporary side mirror rather than drive without one.

Just my two cents.
Drive safe.
