Hey Guys,

I havnt posted images in ages thanks to Imageshack acting up. Anyway today I have something very very interesting for all the kerela boys to spot. So I had posted earlier that a close friend was bidding on KL7 ** 1 for his new car, and withdraw for the supposed Phantom. Anyway his new car arrived today. Actually he couldnt wait for it to reach from Bangalore so we took a train to Calicut last night (as the Navnit driver was too tired and wanted to rest) and drove it down Calicut-Kochi. 6 am I drove the car till about Chavakad.And then on my friend drove. It handled fantastically for the size and felt nippy and small. I thought it would drive like a barge. Anyway he wanted to do some external mods on the car, but I said all it needs is the right set of rims. I suggested these and we got them directly from AGMC BMW in Dubai. Hope you guys agree with my choice. Enjoy

730Ld with 21 inch 5 Spoke OE Borbets on 255/35(front) and 285/30(rear) P Zero Neros.

These are RWD cars so more grip is needed on the rear wheels (To enable smooth application of power) compared to the front wheels.

The Range Rover at Chirayath is a brand new 2007 HSE full optioned 3.6 V8 TD. I drove it. Very torquey, much better than the old 3.0d but not as nice as the 4.2 supercharged petrol. This car has rear dvd entertainment, terrain control, venture cam, the works! Its a skyblue/silver kind of colour with navy seats with white piping which look fantastic. Chirayath says the car cost 96lacs before registration. And the other SUVs are not Lexus Landcruisers. Theres a Mitsubishi Montero and two Prados. 27 for the Mitsu, and 55 for the Prado . Haha I found that quite funny.

I dunno why but the range rover diesels are a bit too small i terms of cubic capacity compared to the overall size of the car..but petrols are an exception..
