Earlier on, it was like theyd let you pass freely if youre driving anything bigger than an City/Corolla/Skoda.
Oops.... Just now only noticed that the car does not sport even temp-reg plates,in which case it is clearly illegal.

Absolutely love the new, facelifted 7-Series....much more than the new S-Class.

So the reason for choosing the Hummer....street presence it is.
Hate those weird, tiny exhausts on Hummers though!
Got the opportunity to see an H2 in it's full gory....yeah, you guys read right gory, not glory! and I realised how wrong I was and how right you guys were.
There are cars which appear ugly in pics, but look droolworth in the flesh....this ones exactly the opposite, looks majestic in pics and kinda nothing great in the flesh.
The interiors were nothing but utter rubbish. did'nt even bother to look at the ridiculous exhaust since I already knew how it looked.
Indeed the Rangies are a much, much, much better deal.

Is there any law like that.
You can be fined for not having a number plate. These days you get your car registered the day we take it out from the showroom unless you are going for a number auction.

Mobile court can fine you hefty amount.

Guess its trouble to roam around with a temporary plate.

I was caught while taking delivery of my friend's new bike. But they let us go as we were almost near the RTO, and we told them we were going to get our numbers done.

the H3 was there at chiriyath till last monday, they were quoting 45Lacs for it.

So far not met him nor seen his collection directly, but from some reliable sources, at present he has a new black X5(spotted on wed by my cousin from Calicut), M-class still using, a Landcruiser, 2-caravan on Tempo Traveller, a stretch Endevor. But it keep on changing.

I doubt it will stay in the 1 cr figure.It should be higher than that.

i think it should be around 1.4 cr cause i had once seen in ACI,it was quoted as 70 lacs (ie without custom duty and other taxes)
