The Hummers come only in Petrol. The dealer price for the H3 is 60 to 65 lacs.

That is the price that was announced by GM, when they were planning on launching the car here. I had asked them for two car but the plan of bringing the car was dropped by them

Like all the expensive cars in India it is for Individuality and one up manship.

That is what i had told the GM representative that i met. The person was more interested in knowing the response for the car rather than getting the car itself. I had told him to get 20 units down to India and see the resonse. Acording to me they would have sold out in the first week itself. I would have taken 2 myself.

It happens, i have faced it too muneemmk. People who do not follow cars would not believe that an expensive car in India is cheaper abroad.

There was a SWB Patrol (Blue/grey) in Calicut a couple of years back. But its not seen in the recent past.

What I was told was wrong. Mr.Kella has actually bought a 300C, but my friend might have misundestood it has RR.

last day I spotted a brand new LandCruiser (new version), but I guess that this car doesn't belong to Calicut. If I'm right it'll be from Tirur as I've seen the driver several times with a import dealer there.

There is a new monoco blue 530d in the city, owned by the b-i-l of an ex-minister.

The black FJ Cruiser was showcased in the 'Fast-track' TV show y'day night. Watch out the re-telecast of the show. There was an interview of the owner, whos is from Vadanapalli (Thrissur Dist). Its on CARNET.

Oh thats too sad to hear. If he fixed it up so soon, then it maight have been some electronic or electrical issue. But why should they bring the technician from Pune, they could have brought from B'lore!

is regular service at particular intervals mandatory for vehicles like range rovers, lulus driver who used to take their RR to banglore for service, told me that "service expense will be more than 1.5 lacs"

I am sure the Chrysler would be a hit since its exclusive in India and it resembles Bentley and its a diesel.
