I hope the RX8 guy remembers to check his oil frequently and use the car for long runs. That engine burns oil and short runs will really screw the engine up - v sensitive

Spotted the Maybach with the 9999 numberplate - an Ambani trademark - parked at the BP pump at Regal (opp. Tendulkar's).

I always thought i'd be blown away when i first saw one in the flesh, but I was pleasantly surprised. It just did not look that huge! Sure, its long, but not outrageously so. What was more imposing was the width of it! It is BROAD man!

It had a beautiful 2 tone paint - dark blue with a lighter, almost violet, lower portion, I've never seen a better paint job than this! The interiors were a light cream. The rear was astounding though! Those seats were amazing, you could literally live in this car!

The best part....the driver, obviously not happy with driving the most expensive car on the roads, put in his own "beaded seat"!! LOL !!

One small detail which I noticed for the first time - the projector headlights are embossed with the Maybach (MM) logo....pretty cool!

All said though, it looked like an extended S class. So the moral of the story is that if you want to make it know that you have arrived...buy the new Rolls Royce!

True.
But if you want to waft around in complete luxury and not shout "look at me ive arrived" everyday on your way to work, its gotta be the maybach.
