you would have sill chosen the bmw right?
My comment had no connection to distance or location of any sort. The reason i give a thumbs up to the dealership is because if it wasnt for them there wouldnt have been so many lambos in India, inspite of them appealing to people who could import it on their own too.
When you are selling car that expensive you have to be well connected with the super-rich folks and makingn them trust you with 3 crores or so.

Spotted again. This time doing its rounds at the Miramar-Dona Paula Bypass. Heard something like 10 sports bikes zooming outside. Went to check and was surprised to see the lambo doing its rounds. And boy, does it sound good.
Is this car based in Goa now?

Good job,nikhil.
I hate to see people touch these exotics. Are they trying to see if the car is for real,and not an illusion?

Hey buddy, no offence but do you know how great does it feel to people who cannot afford it to even see one and click a snap with it by just touching a finger on the car or trying to be as close to the car as they can.
I understand as a owner I myself wouldnt like it, but you cannot help it. You know these people are actually more scared than the owner coz they know that even by mistake if they break something or scratch something, they will keep paying for it for years. I know there are some crooks but exceptions do exist, right!

sister got married some time back so met my new extended family , and went for drive in a "cousins" gallardo , was drunk on royal salute and damn man !

never been so fast so quick on peddar road in my life. What LOVELY braking systems too.
Later he took my mum for a drive too hit 120 with her at pedder road, thats the fastest she had ever been. LOL

PS: after that took mum to 140 in my swift on the expressway [ she didnt know that though , super smooth ]

Well the Delhi car was here at least till the Auto Expo as it was standing at the ACI stall along with his newly acquired 430 Coupe. Did you get a glimpse of the registeration?
