Saw a grey Q5 at Park Circus connector and a Black X6 on Durgapur Bridge the other day.

OT: I was flabbergasted after seeing the X6's butt. I dont recall seeing a bigger or wider butt of any other automobile ever in my life. Just to clear my doubts is the Humvee's but even bigger and wider?

Nice pics shamik. A similar silver colored X1/9 was featured in Auto India in the 90's. The owner should have retained the original wheels, these aftermarket ones do not suit this car one bit.

Indrojit was this car blue at first? A friend of mine in Bombay related to the Gondals had one in blue with Gujrat plates and then sold it to a relative in Bangalore and then rumour had it that Hema bhai picked it up from there. I have driven and been driven in the X19 when it was with my friend in Bombay when we were in college thats a good 10/12 years ago.

There are two X19's i know off and if this is not the same as my friends car then three now. One in Delhi (yellow), Bangalore (blue when it left Bombay) and Kolkata (yellow) each.
