Forgot his handle.
Maybe we should let him know about this.
He got those cars dirt cheap because the C Class and X-trail had met with accidents and we lying in one garage. The C class was owned by a friend of mine and it had crashed into a tree. Whereas the X-Trail was owned by the Leela and also met with a accident and was kept at the same garage due to some insurance problems.

OT: He doesn't restore cars. There is a famous garage in Goa called Service Inn(same place where the C and x trail were abandoned) who does that. Their work is really very good. Currently my Skoda Superb is there getting a body job done due to a accident.

He might probable be interested in this one also. This is also slightly damaged and it looks like it has not been used for a long time.
Any idea of his handle ?
Why not let him know about it ?

Got the VW Touareg for testing today. Went for some off roading with it. Was 98% sure of buying it, but saw the new model coming out so will just have to wait.

OT: any idea when the new one will be out?

I was looking for a SUV which has the best off road capabilities. Hence in all my test drives I take them on sand dunes. The Touareg is the only one which performs to my expectations. I have tested Cayenne Diesel, X5, ML and Q7 on the sand but none were satisfying. Out of which the Q7 was the worst.

Plus its more faster than all the SUV's mentioned above.
