Any reason the S class is not so/or more popular. Is it viewed as an old man's ride or an old money ride.
No offence meant to you Mpower, but I am eager to know what is it about the 7-series that you and many others find ugly? The prev. gen pre-facelift was butt ugly mainly due to those headlights, but the post-facelift one is the one I love.
I infact hate the current gen. due to those huge kidney grills.

Ya she still own it. Last week on some news channel I saw her arriving at a court in Mumbai for some case against her in that black LX470. Later it was also shown she going back from the court but waving her hands to public by standing through the sun roof!

Thanks for sharing these pictures guys.

Now next time when I'm in Mumbai and see some good cars, I'll have an idea of who owns them.

Has Sanjay Dutt got an Audi R8? Spotted a black / red R8 in his building parked alongside the covered 599.

Its been 2 + months since he got it, been seeing it parked there for a while and I think it was written/reported in the press/media as well.

There's also an entry where he defends using his Range Rover inspite of supporting the green initiative.

That car must have drowned several time over since he bought it. Everytime I see it at airport or on the road all the lights show typical signs of a drowned/drowning car :( and keeps geeting worse by the day. In the 05 deluge the white RR, SL500, BMW 7 series, BMW 6 series, and a white E class all went under and every year after that some car or the other from his fleet goes into waste level water. I will never buy a car owned by them

You're right my friend, I also saw the Phantom outside Bade Miya, some guys were enjoying food on its bonet. Same night I saw King Khan and Gauri in their BMW and Saif and Kareena in a red-Merc, entering Taj Gateway late night. A lil later arrived Hritesh in a black S-class with a lady I couldnt recognise as I was standing on the walkway across the road, eating a mutton role .

Last year sometime in Sept, I had gone to meet a friend at Taj coffee shop at the Gateway, I saw Sush getting in a white Audi with a hunk, also crossed legendary Prem chopra, a white old-gen Toyota LC was awaiting outside.

You may be right, I also never said "HIS" Toyota LC. I dont think it would be appropriate to claim him as a "low key" guy and that he "never had" anything above 10lacs... A guy with over 400 films in various languages, cannot be a "low key" one.

Saw a Program where they showed Saif getting into a White RR sport and in another clippet driveing a 7 series with Kareena by his side.

As far as i believe and i maybe wrong the R8 belongs to a close friend of Sanjay Dutt and lives in the same building when he is here. The car has been spotted in the super car club as well.
