Hmmm.. The break in period for that machine is 1000 kms .. Oh well, we all have our driving styles. =)

Saw a yellow New Beetle a little while back. MH 43 V regd. It still looked pretty cool to me inspite of being such an old product.

That's funny. It's the new generation one, if it was actually an LX and not a Land Cruiser with LX badges, it would have read "LX570"

i thikn the new ones for the USDM are 570 but in other countires.. especially asean and some others.. it would continue to be 470.. due to the higher fuel costs..

Note from Mod : Please use proper punctuation and..not..type...like...this, and please take the time to re-read your post for typos before submitting.

Default BMW 318i

Spotted this BMW 318i near my office in Viman Nagar. Definitely an older model, its a DL registration.

Any idea what could be the year of manufacture?

If this does not qualify as an import, mods may take appropriate action. Pardon the poor quality image (my phone camera is incompetent )

The paint quality looked superb and the car seemed to be in immaculate running condition.

That's too small a picture to point out accurately but it looks like an E36 to me. It is an import but definitely not an exotic especially with the 1.8 engine!

Spotted a huge RR Phantom sometime last week on Nagar Road. DL number plates. This was my first view of a Phantom and it sure is some car!

Absolutely correct. It was a maroon colored Phantom. I was in such awe of the car that I wanted to take a U-turn and follow it for a bit .
