I think he's referring to the kid who's popped his head out of the V6 engined Merc ML's sunroof.He's running a risk of getting his head chopped off if the car suddenly crashes,just like in a guillotine.

Oh I see now, yeah that is true.
I guess, popping out the head should not be done on busy roads. On a highway it should be fine though!

@Preetam korg,
sorry to disagree with you but the sunroof is not intended for people to stick their heads out of, under any driving conditions, in my opinion.

Highway or city the guy who has his head stuck out would be just as dead, a la Marie Antoinette.

Busy road or highway, if breaks are applied, you are dead!
Let's end it here now guys.

Yes, that's precisely what I meant in terms of my reference. Without going wildly OT, it would be good to end on the fact that if these people with the privilege to drive around cars with sunroofs could ensure those who travel with them don't practice these feats of sheer stupidity!

Had spotted a white Audi SUV in the Salt Lake Sec-2 region, weeks ago. I had been in a real hurry, so was unable to click some snaps or even confirm the model. Most probably was the Q5.

I know it's not a supercar, nor an import nor anything.

But, one thing though, it looked simply stunning. Those intricate lights are to die for.

Someone please clarify.

I think the Q5 is currently CBU.
But audi got plans to assemble it in here soon. A more affordable Q5 ?

Hope this helps

Default WOW!! What is that? Is that a...?

Friends (especially Kolkatans) you wont believe what I saw this morning. pardon me if it has already been posted. I was returning back from college this morning and I reached the Rowdon Street crossing in front of the uniquely designed(IMO it is a flop in its own way) parking lot. Kolkatans will understand the place once they see the pictures. I see this black two door in the top bunk. I decide to take pic for the forum. I move closer and I get a better view of the badge it was donning. I could not believe my eyes . A FERRARI. Guys I am still not sure it is actually a Ferrari. Itwas very difficult to see since it was in the top bunk. It had a Delhi number plate.

I would request shamik and ayan and other fellow bhpians to throw a light on this matter.
@Shamik: please go and check it out since you r college is nearby.
Here are pictures(tried my best).

P.S- also saw a Q5 in byepass early morning.
