I was told from EVM VW that mammukka is planning to replace his Q7 with a Cayenne. He went to check out the Touareg V6 which was at their dealership a year or so ago(Yes, i know it was a private import. But the owner agreed to sell it for a margin). But the touareg didn't please him enough to deviate from the poker. Any news on that ?

Marikkar Group got the Porsche dealership & Tata might only have got the proposals for the JLR dealership & it may take some time to materialise it. Couple of big shots I know have tried for it.

Mammokka, won't be going for Tourage anyway.

I was told that the first Panemera going to enter the garage of Emkey Group.

I agree that the media guys almost always screw up car facts, but i'm sorry, i dont get this one, what did you expect them to call the new beetle then? A polo?
Good one there

Jay, any idea if the 325i among the 'Total' cars was auctioned ? If so, where has it gone ?

Thanks for the info buddy !

Fingers crossed on the JLR.

Emkey, is on a roll all right. The Ghost, the 5GT and now the Panamera ? Great ! But, not a big fan of the panamera.

Going a bit OT myself;

we have a thread regarding this. IMHO, as long as the plate has right font size etc,its ok to use.

AFAIK, the ad said the High Security plates are yet to be implemented in the state, and they will have to be distributed by the RTO itself, so the look- alike plates are not worth the premium the vendors charge for them. Once the plates are made mandatory, we shall have to get them from the RTO itself.

I have such plates on all my vehicles, and no cop or MV department squad has objected till date.

I got the info from jk(actually his fb updates) the High-Pro plates issue. That is why I asked him to reply more accurately.

All his cars were not auctioned. Only some cars like Laura, Innova, Pajero, CRV etc were auctioned. The costly ones like 3 series, Beetle, old Lexus, a Vintage car etc are missing!

Buddy, i'm sure some of them disappeared. The only cars went for auctions are his montero,pajero,innova,CRV,and some entry level premium cars.The Beemers. There was also a beetle. dont know where it disappeared.
present were missing as it was also agreed by the cops in a press meeting


you didn't get what i said. In case we are reporting, its The New"BEETLE"or The new"VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE", right? But those guys proclaimed the name as "THE NEW BEETLE" itself. I hope you got the point.

The RR is surely put through a lot. Love the attitude of the spirited owner.
The rear overhang is dangerously close to hitting the ground in the second last pic though.
