Arent we talking about 'exotics' here? Or are we really - LX 470, 7 Series....these are hardly "exotic" in today's world.

this one has my favourate old 1990s s-class on the left hand side row, in the black with nice chrome alloys. i think that should be after 1998 model.

I agree.

The cars You've mentioned may not be exotics in the world outside Kerala. But they sure are considered as HOT, ATTENTION GRABBING and DROOLable thingys here.
And I think that's the reason they find some respectable place here in this thread.

we've discussed this issue many times..all i can say is dont try to define term exoxtic the way its perceived in the rest of the world...this part of the forum deals with supercars and imports.so nothing wrong in discussing any imports

there were some guys who found it weird the team-bhp had called it supercars ,as they dont accept cars like escalade and 5series etc etc..but it is an import section too right

however as you said maybe this thread should be renamed to imports in kerala

But the name of main thread is supercars,imports,classics spotted in India.so even if its celicia or a ferrari i think both can be posted.its my opinion.....
and also celicia which is mentioned here is a must see because it looks cool with crystal clear headlamps,nice alloys,black leathers.....

@ hanmust,I really think its about time we stopped posting S classes and 7 series in this thread! they are all over the place, and available locally too, what's the point in posting a hundred of them. And that too, 99% in white!!!

JayD, this is why I still post such photos..even I too love to see any luxury cars or SUVs even if its common...I u'stand that this forum is ment for auto-enthusiast, not for any particular catagories...U know there is a very few contributors to commercial vehicle threads, that doesn't mean U should not be interested in CVs...As I'm still interested in S-classes & 7-series, I'll be posting more fotos...its my commitment towards enthusiast like me....& I do expect the same from fellow BHPians...

Regarding the use of exotic for this thread..as a person who kicked off this thread, by using "exotic" for this thread I only ment those cars which r not common to common enthusiasts...and I'm very sure that lot of enthusiast still find it glad to see even a C-class or 3-series...and from the last somany discussion its very clear that in our state's parameter, S-classes, 7-serieses, R-Rovers, Q7s are all exotics....

This may seem dumb but I though the 745 was discontinued in the facelift and was replaced by the 740 and 750???
