Why do they use such a exotic for long distance communting ? when they have lots of better and fuel efficient cars in their garage ?

btw, any word on the new faclifted S-Class ?

I wanted to post something special as this is my first pic post in this new year. Did'nt spot anything that good recently so uploading some old pics of a 08 M3 convertible.Cheers !

This is the same M3 in B'lore. It was sold to B'lore.

Spotted Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's(who is in tvm today) BMW 76OLi(Old Gen.) with a convoy of 3 silver Safaris. Saw it at a petrol bunk near Vazhuthacaud. Nearly got busted trying to snap it.

Also saw a brand new grey BMW 320i(guessed by the Rim design) with TN temp. reg. plates.

I know this sentiment was stated here before, but, is there any point in posting a large number ofspottings, in view of fact that several "exotic" brands set up dealerships here?

I think it is time to specify a lower threshold limit or budget, and some extra crieteria - like age, actual imports (direct by owner / user rather than through dealer), etc.

To elaborate - we need some criteria like "a large number of latest Mercs are available here; but most of 20+ old mercs are imports direct by users. So, though the older Mercs may qualify for this thread, new mercs below 950K do not".

Sorry mate, i did'nt notice the plates. Btw, the car which is always parked in Raj Bhavan is a maroon E classe(the very old gen the one which started off the round headlights) which is used by the governer too. Weeks before, when Rahul Gandhi came, he came with 4 DL reg. safaris that he used to commute throughout the state So quite possible this 7 also came via same route.

Did the TLC have reg. no. 1 ? Otherwise, it have to be a brand new one.

One among the Carneal Red S 320cdi's has to be hani's best buddy's(KRS guy) car, the family also have a Q7(KL-11-**-123).

Just mentioned in news that the BMW was brought from Delhi in a Indian Navy jet. And the PM arrived tvm by 9.30pm. The visuals reveal that the 7 is DL reg.

I am not sure about the reg number of the TLC.Couldn't see it as it was at the other side of the carriageway.

Yes one s-class belongs to KRS and the other i believe belong to the famous Jewellery group
