I dont know Chaxy,

Theres just somethings about the last two images that just doesnt seem right....the scale, the ripples in the water, and the reflection on the rear glass...to name a few

But given the fact that there is the series of the first 8 images (which are real IMO) to back up the last 2...makes me reconsider my descision.
However if i was shown the last 2 images in isolation i would definitely think they were fake :P

cya

ps - was this after an earthquake or somethign?

Actually the Car is not an Esteem but Baleno as its known outside india. Also observe that its a LH drive.
Wait till tomorrow when i can upload the other last two images (on my office pc) that will confirm the above

I thought the Esteem is known as Swift outside India and the Baleno is known as the Esteem outside India!

I am also pretty confused as about the name * *but wait till i post the next set of pics where its badged as baleno. I think this was in Hungary.. its a guess from the number plate that reads something like HGY-###.
