Yes a Blue one , I had personally spotted him at a service centre in Thrissur where he had come with a Turbocharger problem on his way to a shooting scene. His HR reg X5 is the one seen in Thrissur .

A Hummer H2 destined for Mumbai is in the customs wharf in a very bad shape,with side mirrrors broken and the left rear wheel punctured.Rumour is that the vehicle was destined for Badhshah Khan ,but is stuck here due to some issue with import duty

I think that one was in Mumbai - part of some big hire fleet. The one in Bangalore was a very tired US spec one hat belonged to Kids Kemp guy. IT seems to have disappeared

Ya, there r 3 RRs..among that the one in Calicut is owned by the head of an institution..I've driven it once & took some snaps, but he don't like to publicise it..other one at Cochin is owned by a Marine food exporter & one at Kottayam is owned by a Jewller..his car was shown in the 'Fast-track' auto programme in Manorama News..

There is one more older model at Chavakkad with a famous collector..its one among his 135 car fleet..

hey guys,
Today i've spotted a BMW M3 in Aleppey. This car has been in Aleppey for the past 5 months. So we Alleppeyians also got something to present.
ALso while i was in Kottayam, i've seen a VW Toureg and a MH regn AUDI TT.Once i was standin outside my college...er... on a sunday..heee..heee... i saw a Merc CLS 500 coupe, and it was going damn fast . A red one.It was damn sexy..man....
Also one day i saw an SL500 in NH47 close to Cherthala. It was somewhat a Maroon colour and Ernakulam registered, but the heart-breaking sight was that the front bumper was alomost compleately ripped off and was hanging from the rest of the body. LOW GROUND CLEARENCE + INDIAN ROADS = DAMAGED BUMPERS. This formula must be the reason. anyways... rich guy.Must have repaired it right now.
