Wanted to pass a small information - R8 is going out soon, Red M3 came in - go figure

@ Who Am I? - thanks for the information.

@ Snappers - relocate yourselves with your cameras

@planet_rocker: which R8 is going out? The DL-registered one or the WB reg one? Is the M3 going to the same address?

Huh? i thought there is only one White R8 (DL registered). There was one booked through Mark n Glix (dunno if it is the WB registered - do you have any pictures of the WB registered one?)

Shamik - are you talking about this R8? http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1984585-post1363.html

if yes, then i am talking about the other one

PS: So a Black R8 (under cover & earlier spotted by Rohin at Audi Kol) and a White R8 nice.

I had spoken to a guy at the Audi showroom and he'd informed me that they had sold one R8 in Kolkata, a silver one(IIRC). I think there are pictures somewhere. I'm no good at remembering stuff.
EDIT:
@planet_rocker: No, no I wasn't talking about that car. But I'd got the above information on that day itself.

@Pancham: The XJ spotted earlier was silver only. Probably looked bluish due to color compression. I'd seen it at gariahat. Looked lovely
I do think there's a second one, probably never been spotted. I doubt Audi showroom guys would give me wrong information.

wow! that means the R8 is goin out of Lytton? and M3 coming into Lytton? can someone throw some light about the owner?

and about gals of LMG or Loreto, good going, I am actually a bit outdated in terms of this, I passed out of school in '02

anyways LMG or any gate, keep up the good work of spotting exotics in the city of "bhodroloks"

you got the first part right and that answers your second part. lets not name the owner on the forum.

Can't say that this is the city of "bhodroloks" (gentlemen), but we have people like Rohin, Pancham and SBose to keep us happy with pictures of exotics, supercars and imports.

I really don't understand why people opt for that leaping cat on the bonnet. IMHO, it spoils the look of an otherwise splendid looking car. Is that at the Taj?
