Big time we announced on a global level that we have moved on from were they left us

although to be fair, whenever i stay at the family apartment in lokhandwala, and go for a walk up the road....

Great find guys!

Any idea about the theme of the episode to be shot in India? is it going to include anything about the F1 especially since they are going to be in Delhi.

Cheers

P.S: Is the trio driving down to Delhi part of a long run or so?

I'd do anything to catch a glimpse of them, or maybe even a photograph! I just can't wait to hear Jezza's lunatic comments about our country and especially Bombay where he can see a 1200 Tata Nano and a 300,000 Rolls Royce really struggle it out in the traffic :-P His humor should be taken with a pinch of salt.

I can't wait for this years Christmas special now! I hope they have highlighted and summarized the Indian Automotive Scene well!

I am not exactly sure if I understood what you meant by that.

Is it the elephants in the city? I don't think that'd be much of a disgrace. These are sights you wont get to see anywhere else in the world. These are signature Indian. I wouldn't want us to prove them that we are space age pledging all these ethnic luxuries that make us feel we're home, it may be irritating at times, but could we imagine a India without all these?

My point was they also should portray the changed/changing face of India and not just elephants and cows in the streets.

All these sums up in what they call The Great Indian Adventure!

Thanks a lot guys for sharing the pictures.

Man! This is so amazing. I wish I could get a chance to meet these guys. After all, this might be the only chance because I don't think they will return after seeing Mumbai roads

I am eagerly waiting for their Christmas special. Would love to hear what they have to say about India especially, Clarkson.

Default We met with the TG team

Thanks to a friend who works for the Hotel they are staying in we got the opportunity to spend about 5 minutes with them.

They were very friendly and they mentioned that they like Mumbai.

We asked them about their plan but obviously dint want to disclose it. My guess is that they are heading to Jaipur next and then may be Ladakh.

We only had a phone cam and bad light unfortunately.

Who all were there?

I saw Hammond in his Red Mini below the Andheri flyover at 9 30am today. Followed them till the Kherwadi signal. The crew was filming it from a white Prado. There was also an Innova in front of the Prado with rest of the crew.

Check atop the Mini. So, now we know one challenge. The boys are "helping" the Mumbai dabbawalas. How hard can it be?

Thanks for pic Scorcher.
