Theres a pic of it on the forum from when it was up for sale. The present owner came home on new years day. But he had brought his Lucida (04-05) which is for the wife and kids. I was hoping it was the CL. If I find the time Ill drive by their place and try and get a pic of the CL. I asked him what the present cars where and he said the CL55 and the Cayenne.

Is the Cayenne in Calicut now? I never got a chance to see the Jag he sold it before that. He said it was very problematic and a ride around the block and some lights or the other would come on. Im guessing it was an S-Type. But he has a knack for finding some really problematic cars. The best so far has been the Cayenne. Its a fabulous car in great condition. I was surprised when he got hold of that one ! I guess the Accord has stood him good ground too.

dude this is the problem with us..why should we indianise our forum when we are disscussing about foreign cars.....we should be upthere and discuss everything on international level.....and the price is not the factor that makes a car exotic..

man this is India,you can't see a Q7,X5 or a ML270 at every road or every day like an alto or santro.More over they aren't built here but CKDs.A porsche cayman may cost same as Merc E class but E is built here and common also thats why cayman is an exotic not e class

@all, have recently started spotting a 7 series every so often, first it was near the south over bridge, then in MG Road, then near panampilly nagar.

If 1000 Porsches were to be sold in India,wouldn't we better off in quite a few aspects?

Whats the total count of the 7-series in Kerala? Way above 10?
