Buddy, i think the child is in the co-passenger's lap and not in the lap of the one who is driving(Humayoon). Illusion

I guess Ajmat meant - A kid on your lap in any front seat is dangerous. There is a passenger side airbag as well to consider.

Thats the reason why small kids abroad cannot be in the front seat of a car.

The colour of beetle looks a bit odd right? red and yellow matches the car.

If so, then kid is not sitting with him, but his wife on so-driver seat!

Infact at first while booking he choosed red, but since red was not available he changed to yellow. But at last a Beetle came to showroom for display & it was said that the next one will be here atleast after a month, hence they decided to go for the one available!


One romour; I was told that the first BMW 5-Gran Tourismo has reached Nattika (Thrissur) to accompany other 12 luxury cars (emkey Group)! It's not bought from BMW Cochin, but B'lore & colour is said to the grey (same one displayed at Expo). If so it'll be one of the first 5-GTs among the only 100 to hit Inida.

The same person has also bought a X5 (white) & his old 7-series is re-painted to black. Other cars in his garage are:

1. Mercedes S500 (W221) - Zircon-Green
2. BMW 750Li (F02) - White
3. Mercedes E350 (W212) - O-Black
4. Range Rover Vogue - Silver
5. BMW 530d - Black
6. Mercedes S320 CDI (W220 - re-badged S500) - Almandine Black
7 & 8 Mercedes E320 (W211) - Green-black & Grey
9 & 10 Toyota Land Cruiser - Maroon & Greenish Grey
11. Mitsubishi Pajero.

RR Ghost is avaiting to join the club! He has almost the same fleet at Abu Dhabi too, but king of the fleet there is Maybach 62.

Its also said that he is planning a luxury fleet of taxi for his 5-star Hotel coming up at Edapally Jn. Cochin, so all the three luxury car dealers are eagerly waiting for their luck!

Exactly, the force of the bag will literally snap the childs neck if not suffocate the child. My skoda has a facility to turn off the bag. It is in the glove box and operates with the ignition key. Might be availalbe in the beetle also since they have the same platform

I say Mr. Emkey has some taste on Luxo-Mobiles. Love his collection and choice of colors. btw, hani is the RR Vogue Silver ? I think a saw a light shade of Green with silver(similar to the color on Innova).

Hm, there are numerous landies in KL too. I think nearly 10. Afaik, there are even 3 2010 RR Sports. One among, is the one you saw. I'm waiting to see if someone gets a Supercharged RR(Hopefully, me ! ) in here. That would be someday !

Default When two identical Germans met!

Y'day night it was a moment when two identical German meet at same time, Porsche 911 & Beetle who literally have some fascia met at Calicut Coffee Beans!

It was last Tuesday night when my good friend Ashique's 911 Carrera Cabrio reached Calicut, but both we were not in station on next days hence we could meet only y'day night for a blast along with Humayun & our family. We fixed to meet at Coffee Beans! Below is the video to show the throttle of the same; captured when Ashique left after our meet!



Earlier on the day at evening I had a meeting at Humayun's office, his A6 was snapped below his building!
