Woah, Buying a expensive SUV is one thing and makeing it do things it was mde to do for is quite another. Nice snaps, I feel the front and rear overhangs can cause a bit of concern. I heard the hight of suspension can be adjusted in a pajero, can that also be done in a RR, cause the ground clearence looks little low.

Yes it can be done on a rangie too AFAIK. IMO the GC is alright, but the only problem I feel about the RR is its rear overhang. That will cause a lot of problems with steep inclines I guess.

Great pics hani, Good to see someone putting the RR to its potential. Was it a photo shoot sake or pics from a full-fledged off-road trip ?

Yes, it does come with adjustable suspension, It is called Terrain Response, You simply have to select the correct Terrain Response, the system automatically pics the most appropriate settings for the suspension. But the rear over hang is really a problem. My friends car in trivandrum with the a/m Remus Exhausts will defenitly damage the exhausts if it was put in those situations. But, strangely the big brother Rangie don't seem to have such issues.

Great pics Hani. Glad to finally see a RR (in India) on such terrain. Hats off to the owner. I personally would be pretty apprehensive about doing something like this in a RR. I guess the urge coupled with the adrenaline finally gets the better of most of us on wheels!!!

Finally the rangie gets to do its stuff and is being used the way it should be.
And If the owner really wanted to do do some real off-roading , why didn't he get the big rangie instead of the sport ?

Sorry for the late reply

Scorchy, I'm not sure about this, but my friend who clicked those pics of M3 claims that he took it from Platino Classic.

That is a nice find buddy. Nice color too. Appreciate !

OT - Why would anyone take a Supra to a marriage ? Bad taste !

OT -
- The M3 at BMW Kochi had the Graphite finish rims and not the one in the pics.

- I'm very much familiar with the platino classic interiors. They are very much different. There is no wall like in the picture, in the place there is a glass shelf to keep bespoke BMW Scale Models. And the interior is kind of horse shoe style, so they won't park two big cars back-to-back like that in the front.

- The BMW Kochi showroom is very raised from the ground and no way a 3 series is parked out side the window like that.

Hope you understand
