Something seems to be quite strange about the SLK. Is that a aftermarket bumper? I think its the addition of the DRL's that make it look a bit different.

I dont think it was on the launch model, maybe it was an addition done later to be on par with the Euro norms?Attaching a picture of the same model when it was launched. Source: Wikipedia

The DRLs and their holders are an after-market addition. The bumper is stock.

Nope, side vents did not feature on the R171 SLK line-up at all. Even the hardcore 55 AMG wasn't blessed with vents like those.

The front bumper looks like a Brabus accessory, if not a replica at least.

The LP560-4 BiColore at Bunts Hostel. Was a quite a head turner with those QucikSilver exhausts.

In addition, Mangalore is also slated to get it's first Audi Showroom at Mak Mall, Kankannady. Work has already begun at the place earmarked for the showroom.

Spotted a White Dubai Registered GMC Yukon near Nethravathi Bridge last night. It was heading southwards towards Thokottu. Awesome road presence. Wasn't able to capture pics though.

Also, spotted a silver Porsche at Bendoorwell near Danish. Though not sure whether it was the 911 Carrera or a Cayman. Again, no pics unfortunately.

Saw it a couple of times near balmatta. And yeah, it's huge allright!
btw, do you know if it's a denali trim?
The black Cayman s will be parked in the Kadri juice junction building. There's also a multicolor Skoda Laura always parked next to it, Killer paintjob!

This video was by the owner. Seems like someone has lifted it and posted it under their credits :/

Anyways, absolutely love the sound of the V10 coupled with the Quicksilvers!

This may not be a supercar but one hell of an import well known for its thirst for fuel.
Finally caught up with the Yukon!
Enjoy.
