the current expo was as usual filled with motor heads. but one thing that always goes thru my mind (pardon me if i'm wrong) is that the auto scene in delhi is not that happening as compared to mumbai and bangalore. the star of the show was obviously the maybach.....lucky me got to check it inside out. honda and toyota were conspicuous by their absence. skoda had a real handsome car, the tudor on display. then it was the usual stuff.....

great pics!

Don't know about Bangalore.. but the one in Mumbai seems to be a damp squib every year. Didn't even bother going for it this year.

The Expo scene must be a drab here in Mumbai but Mumbai most definitely has the most happening cars around here in India. anyways nice pics. lucky you got to see the Maybach

ya the auto expo scene in mumbai is a bad one. But what we dont see at the Mumbai Expo, we get to see them on the roads.
Audi TT, SL500's, AMGs, etc etc we have everything on the roads. Who needs an expo ?


BTW those are cool pics. Anyways can you enlighten us on the GT40. I read in ACI that its a replica. Is it true??

acually i was'nt referring to the expo scene. in general, car customization and audio installations are much better in the southern and western parts. some ppl in delhi (u get to see the ads in the automags) churn out mods even worse than "mr.designer" himself.......beat that. u feel u cud make better stuff in ur backyard. i've even seen guys with 2-3 diff brand subs installed.....blue alpines, red explods combined...and real crappy grafix. looks really really dowdy. have money.......but whats the use if there aint nothin up there??? in mumbai and b'lore, we get to see better quality stuff.....and much better sense of style.
