Am ignorant on this.pls clarify.
He got a point there anif, Nippon has a showroom on Highway too. Pretty near Techy. And all that area comes under KL-22(Kazhakuttom Sub-RTO). Quite possible. Did you ask them or just made a guess that he is driving it down from cochin. And no way Cochin dealership give a Trivandrum Sub RTO regn. They normally give KL-39(Tripunithura Sub-RTO).

i'm pretty sure that the car has just reached there from a long drive as heat and smell of rubber was radiating all around the car.So i guessed it's coming from cochin showroom,didn't thought about the temp registration though.

@ Hanmust - i don't think this one is the actor's car

One of my Best Friend's garage. It currently consists of the W221 S320cdi. The E300 Diesel(Direct Import) was sold a while ago. Guess what, This garage will soon sport a spanking new GL350cdi and E350cdi

EDIT - @crazybiker46 - Confirmed that Bheema's TLC and 2xTLCP's(including the one you posted) has been delivered from the Trivandrum showroom only.

Some random spotting on my last Cochin visit!

RR Sport & TLC spooted in front of Whyte Fort Hotel when we went for lunch.

Old gen CLK, I was told that its from Kottayam Dist & there is no number plate, only a temp regn sticker. I was also told that it bought as used one either from Delhi or Mumbai.

W220 S320 CDI, its a import variant, look of the sportiest wheels available other than the AMGs on W220.

Lot of booking for W221 & there was three new S320 CDI & a S350 waiting for deliery. While I was in showroom, the TVM based builder who have new RR Sport, last gen 730Ld, S320 CDI (re badged S500) came in his S to book the new S350 CDI. More over his S now run with out any badge on it!

Volvo S80 V8, its pre-faclifted model parked in the back of its showroom. It seems its a dead stock as there is no buyer for petrol especially V8.

Nice pictures there of the V8. Volvo cars were always known for their safety. I love that massive hood.

Ya, I too love Volvo, you know that hood abrsorb the V8 horizontally since its FWD (even though AWD, its FWD layout engine)

@Hanmust, think you mean transverse engine mounting as opposed to longitudinal,rather than horizontal,in the case of the Volvo V8.
Read your posts with interest,particularly the MB factory visit coverage,which I believe was organised by you.
Good luck.

Wow. The W220 looks fab. The color and the rims give a California air.

Why is the RR still running on temp plates ? Its been a long time i guess.

Is it the jewellers TLC ?
