Looks like a face-lifted Prado. White really suits the Toyota and makes it look even bigger than what it is! Good catch, Anupam!

Yes, like Rob said, its 100 cars for India. But seeing the warm welcome the GT got in India, chances are high that they brought in more.

Originally, only 4 was allotted to Kerala and 3 of them was sold in Trivandrum and 1 in Kottayam. But the showroom people won't let go a booking and will get the cars from neighboring state dealers. So I think this blue GT came either from Chennai or Bangy dealer.

This person AGAIN is family and I got to check this car out this car, I never really liked the new Prado by its looks, but I was bowled over by its capabilities and clearly overshadowed the Montero it replaced in his garage. Still, I had a question to ask him, "Why not a German?"

I was not able to snap it coz i was driving in the opposite direction , I have never seen pritvis bimmer in such a pitty condition. Hannie it might be there in Calicut on tomorrow.

Spotted a brand new registered white Bimmer Gt at kuttippuram.

Spotted a silver and white brand new m class at calicut.

Off topic - Hannie I also visited your new venture at wayanad , its fantastic congrats !!

Foby, thats not Pritviraj's car, its a another new red Z4 owned by a young NRI businessman who hails from Thrissur, but have business in Cochin as well. He had a RR-Sport which was very badly hit at Mangalore, I guess some body has posted the photos earlier of the Sport, anyway for referance am posting one.

This Z4 too is KL-7 with single digit regn plate, hes a clean shaved guy & used to ply between Thrissur & B'lore via Clt.

It's not silver, but white new M-class being added + 2 new E-class, white & iridium silver & a black new C. Also added are a cashmere biege 730Ld & a grey X5.

Thanks Foby for ur comments on my resort, let talk about it over phone, its not the place for it!

Here is an photo send by my friend Abhay from Thrissur, a new S-class in the town, owned by the same home appliance showroom guy.

Sorry, a small correction. The guy I mentioned above has booked a new Z4, but his car is not yet delivered. The car Foby saw was the personal car of the dealer itself!

Thanks a lot for the link. I didn't knew about this crash until today. Sorry to see a British icon in this state. But thank God, the occupants are safe.
