Talking Times Drive Errors

Has anyone noticed all the times drive articles are direct bolt ons from Topgear. But the sad thing is that they dont even know how to simply copy and paste. Todays Times Drive Issue has a article about the Verna on the cover page, along with ofcourse a exterior and interior pic.

The Exterior Pic is of the Verna VTVT 1.6 XXi in Red.

The Interior Pic is well a NHC Vtec

Those who dont have access to Times Drive can check it out on epaper at Indiatimes.com

It's been a while that I've stopped seeing that section altogether. Feel the section is a waste of valuable news-print.

Danlan i observed that too. Thw whole Times Drive has always been a weekly Joke supplement for me. After talking about the 1.8 Petrol he compared the 1.6 with the 1.3 Petrol

See TOI doesn't care a wee bit about cars... They publish such non-sense supplements to generate revenue through advertisements/classifieds. Take any edition of Times Drive and you will find that more 60-70% of the paper is filled with classifieds. And of the remaining paper, most space is occupied by oversized photos

we have such things running on xbhp too. There are so many papers, magazines and online websites which do not know even a word about cars and bikes and still write all useless funny crap!
