A few weeks back, I saw the SNDP leader, Vellapalli Natesan, in a new to-be-registered RR Sport! Sorry now pics presently. And on an other ocassion, I saw him in a Merc E-class(guess and E270/E280). Do not remember exactly and sorry, I was on my way home from school, so no pictures! Anyone spotted these?

The car you saw must be the famous NRI's prefacelift W221 S500 (Periclase green). This is definitely an S350 CDI. AFAIK, there is no other W221 S500s in the state.

Chances are high that you saw Mr VN in the same black RR Sport crazybiker46 and myself posted in the last pages. The owner is closely acquainted with VN.

That explains it. I heard that he is/was a strict Merc fan and doesn't ride in anything else.

Porsche Cochin has finally started to live up to the name..

A red hot boxster is on display at the showroom. It looks really wicked with black alloys and all. Wonder who would have placed the order for the same, or is it there for display?

Might be for display since they kept only cayenne and panamera all these days. Maybe for a change. Or let's hope it's there for delivery.

When i first spotted this car,the seats were covered in large towels you can see in politician's ambassdors and last time i spotted the rear seats were completely wrapped in woolen cloth (teddy bear stuff)

I'd reserve my comments on the fur thing as it is always a personal choice, but doesn't such huge seat covers hinder the function of these Business Class-rivaling seats? He cannot even feel many features like heated seats, lumbar support or even the massage function.

When I saw that 'fur' seat in the 7 series and thought of the silly owner, the word 'Useless' and 'Third rate' comes in my mind. Then again, one man's poison is another man's medicine.

@RSBlue - Fur+towels Ahh!! this is the same car,totally hate it.
Things like these come up when someone have bucks but donot know the value or features of car and end up treating it like some normal car

Anybody who hasnt paid the BMW 7 series owner money to buy that car DO NOT have any right to criticize him and comment on his knowledge of cars and the features.

I understand this is a public forum and it offers freedom to criticize and I use that same freedom to raise the above point.

@RSblue : is that a Boxter S Or a Cayman S ( it comes with Black wheels)

It is a Boxster S and I beleive rims with black paint finish is an option (an expensive one though)

Here are a few pics that I managed to get. Sorry for the poor quality pics. Will try for better ones for sure.

That is exactly why I preferred to "reserve my comments". After all, it is his car and his dough

The Boxster sure looks nice with the color and black rims, better pics will be appreciated.
