Nope, it isn't.

About a California, I dunno about Thrissur, but another district might get one.

I hope the owner is tracking his car from the factory and not the dealership otherwise he is in for a wild ride. The dealership is not something i would like to deal with unless i have political connections or am very influencial. I would suggest the owner involve the Company too by writting them a letter and seeking information about his purchase.

Yes, of course. We're all aware of the notoriety of the Indian dealer.

Moreover, he has been pretty hands-on with the whole process. He recently even visited the Maranello factory and was around Fiorano in an F12. Lucky, you say!

.

If you have purchased a car, you do have the liberty of visiting the factory and seeing your car on the production line. The company takes you to their test track to drive the model one has purchased and also any other model there. We had driven the 458 spyder then.

Spotted this beauty today at Kadavanthra Jn. Seems to be a new car going by the plates.
Is this the one headed to Thrissur?

Saw a black Hummer on a tow truck at Kudannoor junction yesterday evening. Think it's already been posted here.

You've really got my attention with this. Could you elaborate : ) ? or perhaps link to some thread where it has been discussed Scorcher.

That's the demo car. It was here in Trivandrum a couple of days back.

Spotted the AUDI RS5 at a friends sis's engagement. Look at the wheels.

I love the RS5's stance. The window-line is much higher than of the M3 that it gives the car a really low slung look.

Was this in Trivandrum?

It belongs to the Calicut VW dealer, hence asking.
