All that is still a may be.. Will update likewise.
hmmm i would like to suggest once more [probably in vain] get a Cayman S retrofitted with an LSD! It lapped the Nurberg ring in 8 mins 11 seconds according to Car&Driver, and the Carrera they tested clocked 8 mins 15 i believe. With an LSD that thing will be in the league of the 911 turbo!

Besides when you already have fast cars is there any point going faster with regular companies like Ferrari, they're "Common" if I may say so...Why not Spykar or Koenigsegg or Saleen or Pagani, there're are so many really niche exotics

I had one time inquired with a school who train car techys if they could supply me one or if I sent someone from india to be trained in servicing. They said they can do it.

another way is you fly a really good techy from london/dubai/singapore and get it serviced, it would be a 2 times a year affair and would be expensive for someone who can afford the beauties.

Perry, for sure man. Any time you are around in chandigarh, hit me up.
I'l be getting the LP a little later now , around July as I want the 09 changes (Rear View Camera and Corsa Mode!) to be incorporated in my 08 build car.

I'd be selling the Porsche soon so we'll catch up soon then.

Yeah. Considering that cars of that class (Pagani or Koenig) would be like a second or a third exotic, that does sound like a plausible idea.
Thanks.

Default Nice

Nice collection there Bro!

I have seen all three of your cars in flesh (the S500 around 4-5 times).

Must say, you are a very lucky guy and very down to earth too!

Keep it up and drive safe!

Cheers,
Jaspreet Singh

His place is bigger then any authorised ferrari service centre in london and he is the most popular along with Jow macari who is authorised.
I guess you have not seen his set up he is no way the biggest

Verdi has got to be one of the biggest Ferrari Specialists - Verdi Performance Cars

Verdi is one of the better known non authorised service centres for Ferrari and Lambo.

Theres places like Joe Macaris but I doubt their service centre is any bigger.

You appear to have the moola so why not become the authorised Koenig dealer for India.

That way you will never be short of a service mechanic. Also do Koenig not have some sort of hook up so you can send diagnostic data to Koenig and they can diagnose whats up with the car from the factory/service centre. Would still need a service chap on the ground.
