i was quite surprised to read that then!

Ya i too had heard!!!!!
But someone told me Chandighar.. Donno 4 sure.. Hey but frm wat i'v seen.. If u take merc, Corolla, Lancer and Skoda.. Cochin would definitely be there in the top 5 list .. Here unlike wat i'v seen in b'lore, the numb of merc, Corolla, Lancer and Skoda r much higher.. In fact u get to c some kool sports cars here n rhere but otherwise its just Maruthis n hyundais there... Donno why, may b the heavy traffic is d reason.. But even in Cochin, the traffic is heavy but u find these cars in plenty.....
Anyways.. if u hear anything bout the cities list havin big cars, lemme know..

in terms of Benz/ sq ft - Cochin rules (not really been to the Punjab). Need to consider that Cochin gets mercs from Pune(brand new), the gulf and....Bangalore - the no of bangalore reg Mercs are amazing over ther

I guess the most number of Mercs are in Ludhiana or Chandigarh. Even in Delhi, I see a lotta Mercs around including many S-classes. But being from Cochin, I can say that the number of Mercs per individuals is really high. This means that the actual number may not be as high as in Ludhiana/Chandigarh, but the ratio of Mercs per number of people in Cochin and Calicut is really huge.

Don't be surprised if Kerala comes up tops. They have stuff that you can't see.

Like the Ferrari 575 Taxi we saw. Who knows, there might be an Enzo lurking among those coconut trees, waiting to be unleashed. hehe
