BTW what happened after the sudden break , did the car skid ?

Made any sound ?

Or it was quite enough for the lady to turn back and walk forward and hit the car ?

The rear end did shift a bit. But before it could skid the zillion ESP programmings came into action and reigned the Behemoth. The expression of the lady was to see. She just gave a sharp stare at the driver and walked the opposite way.

I agree, The Q7 incident happened in a very narrow strech of road and the must thank god that the lady did'nt make an issue out of it.

Lucky lady, saved her life from getting run by this beast. Was a pretty close call.
That's my friend Shabeer's Q7, the person who brought the yellow H3. It's the same Q7 with 21" Kahn wheels & now removed due to poor roads.

See how the lady walk through the center of a road looking behind! That's the traffic culture we have in our state rather country. We cannot always blame the drivers/motorist for the accidents! This is an evident, thanks Scorcher. It's high time to make traffic awareness as part of curiculam.

You are right, see the export sighn on the regn plate. In most of Gulf countries blue plates are used to the cars which is exported from the nation.

@ Scorcher , did you got any news about the new Z4/Z3 in trivandrum , actually the car belongs to thrissur but it is in Trivandrum now.
I got the jeweller you are pointing to, But afaik he dont have a Black X5.

No, no idea of any Z4 in here. Just a Boxster and a Supra(as some one mentioned in here, never saw the supra)

I think that is the 2nd set of 'Project Kahn's bought by Shabeer. So, if he got comfort problems why would he buy another set. Or was it removed due to the Long run from Clt to Tvm ? btw, hani, dont you think it badly deserves a better no: plate. The current one with the Silver garnish looks a bit downmarket. Even the 'Hi Protection ones(IND)' will make it look way better.

Its Dhronar, btw, by the visuals it looked like a pretty matured movie, means the one with more brainy stuff than these 'Bling Blings'. I did see a Black Audi Q7 in another Mammootty flick 'Chattambinadu's trailer, which incidently belong to the Co-Producer Mr Naushad of Naushad Catering(KL-23 or 29). I've personally seen it once in tvm. Also 'Gulumaal' Has a white Q7(Gvr reg. i guess).

The pre-facelift M had too tiny RVM's similar to the E and had viewing problems too. The facelift seems to have filled the error. It gets bigger ones.

The film is titled - 'Dhrona 2010'. I saw 'Gulumal' and didnt remember seeing a Q7 in it. Anyways there is a white Q7 in 'My Big Father'.

Oops, My bad. I saw all the new releases in a row. So got messed up, hence it has to be in "My Big Father". Okay, but i think initially it was named dronar maybe renamed afterwards.

P.S- I think we are going terribly OT. So i think the movie part should end here. CHEERS.

I beg to differ here being an owner of a pre facelifted ML. The car RVM's are by no standard small or similar to the E class (being an owner of the E too). The Facelifted ML mirrors are the similar as the older ones. The only diference in both cars is the under body protector in the facelifted one. Will take pictures and post for you tommorrow.

Brother, i by no means meant both ML and E have same ORVM's but similar in design. And i myself being 6ft + person and who also have a experience of driving the ML, X5, Q7 and numerous similar SUV's do feel it needs bigger ORVM's since i had to tilt my head to catch a good view. Its very evident in comparison with the X5,Q7 etc. A vehicle that big does deserve bigger mirrors. Though, it is my personal perspective. I never saw the facelifted ML personally. Just read somewhere that it gets a revised ORVM's. Also note hani(hanmust) mentioning the same point in reply of it being different because it is pre-facelift. Cheers.

Here are some pix from the cochin customs, taken a week back by a friend. Other than these cars, there were 2 range rovers too, which the guys said was being taken out soon. They said the corvette has some sorta engine trouble. I Still don't understand what an \lhd car is doing here though!!
