I've seen the same S350 CDI couple of weeks back when I was in Trivandrum to sign agreement with Surya TV for my show! I saw it on my way to Shastamangalam near Police HQ, don't know place name! But couldn't snap as it was on the opp side of the road!

It might be some dealer! Even other state dealers put their ad with a locan cell number!

Last week Mercedes-Benz organised a meet to bring the "Pure Fascination" to Kochi, on the occation MB India officially revealed the FL S-class. Other models on diplay were GL350 CDI, E350 CDI, E250 CDI, C230, C220 CDI. Photos & report: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post1769641 (Mercedes-Benz brings "Pure Fascination" to Kochi)

On last Friday saw the only W221 S500 in the state from Hotel Taj. Mr.Emkey Group was in Calicut for 2 days for some public funtion. My friend & me were coming for lunch while he was going out from the hotel in S500 escorted by Scorpio. On parking lot saw his new E350 & one of drivers know to me told me that his family was also with him, hence came in two cars & two Scorpios. Also seen an out of city S-class, which he said is from Kollam & came to meet Mr.Emkey!

Regarding his RR, I got the inform last week from his fleet manager that he has finalised Ghost & will get the car by May `10.

And regarding the 5-series GT, the news is true that one GT is heading to Kerala, but not to Mr.Emkey's garage!

@hani: I love these cars.But as you said in the show , the e-class isn't coming with Adequate Thigh support. That's a very bad disadvantage from merc. Even Every entry level premium car has adequate thigh support. I noticed that before you said in the show. Whats your opinion?

Ok,went to the Full throttle event organized by Barton Hill Engineering college today at Nishagandhi. And after the freestyle stunt shows and other events i was just walking through the stalls when i quite unexpectedly bumped into trivandrum's only E36 M3(AC Schnitzer built, track spec) which apparently belongs to a fellow-bhpian(non active). I was seeing the car after like 3-4 yrs, we knew each other and exchanged some pleasantries and car talks. He fired it up for me and was such an orgasmic exhaust note i say. He offered me a drive too, i was so excited i rang up jk_das and told him, I'm going for a drive in the E36 M3. Just then, as he was one among the Judges of the evnt he had to get on the stage for some honourings and i had to leave in a jiffy for some urgent engagements. But we have promised to meet soon for the drive. Fingers crossed. Can't wait !

Have some pics, but very poor quality because of poor lighting and the crappy flash of my E series.

And the best part, If he is in country(he works for Rolls Royce, Goodwood and is one among the team who built the Phantom 'seriously'), Hopefully, he will make it to the next trivandrum bhpian meet, with the M3.

That's one of the best M3s in the country. Looks awesome with the body kit. Scorcher, did you take any videos? Would love to hear her roar.

Default It's raining Touaregs (in Calicut)!

There are currently 3 Touaregs in our service centre. All three are V6 TDIs in Black Magic colour.

The one on the left is a 2006 pre-FL, directly imported by the only VW dealer in India at the time. The second one is owned by our MD. The third one is a new car, unloaded yesterday, meant for an out-of-town businessman.

Nice pics bro, would look good in the multiple imports thread.

I really love the pre-fl one w/o the spare wheel. The new ones got petite wheels. Anything better on option ?

Great pics of the AC Schintzer M3 there scorchy! I used to love these beemers. They looked outright aggresive and with the AC Schintzer Kit, it seems to scream out loud "I'm the king of the road, give me way!"
What a car!

Really nice pic, man! The first one is the pick of the lot - it looks like a real brute with those large rims and wide tires!

Cheers!

Exactly, the same car bro. It has now hit roads after a really long interval and a good complete refreshment

How on earth did you recall the exact page ?
