Spotted this H2 at a wheel shop in the city. But I was really desperate to see the monster with a down sized tyres! It looked very awekward for a Hummer with such tyres. When I enquired about it, it's said that they were travelling in the car till Mumbai covering many cities & due to the bumpy drive they changed the tyres. But later the driver came with set of orginal tyres in an autoriksha to be changed!

As per the owners request this vehicles tires were changed as the owner wanted the car to hit the roads with a totally new set of tires. the normal set of tires were replaced with the one's in the rickshaw.

I don't think it's Kella's car, first of all if I'm not wrong Kella's ML is tealite grey & secondly all his cars will have his company logo 'KELCO' sticker on the rear wind shield!

FARDAN, I could feel that the tyres in the riksha is very new! The same H2 was at Mercedes Service center here to check out the batteries. The service in charge there told me that the battery is weak & since the terminal is different from that of the Merc models, they couldn't change it!

Well, when you realise that part of the deal is to have 5 fully paid Porsche cars in the showroom at all times + investment in facilities, it ain't a very good deal as yet. May be in Delhi and Mumbai

You are right, I've worked out the business for a close friend of mine & later he dropped it considering the business angle. But it could be considered for reputation!

5 fully paid porsches,No way they are going to get the interest they pay to the bank for the inventory funding for that matter.maybe they would have got some relaxation.They were doing good regarding volkswagon till dec 2008 but now its a different story.Hope they get better in the comming months.Porsche,nissan,volkswagon-good going for them .
