That looks like XJ only. Defenitly not a X-type.

Here is a pic of the XJ with Chrome grille, they are optional.

That's definitely an XJ. The X type has a different grille and the headlights are a little bigger than the XJ.

Definite XJ. Although there's a blue or grey Daimler Super 8 around South Bombay too.

Spotted a scorching red Jag XK-R near Mehrauli that looked absolutely ravishing. The guy raced ahead before I had gotten a chance to get my cam out though.

Also spotted this old school W123 Merc 240D that was ferrying school children:

Spotted a 2009 Acura TSX in front of Pragati Maidan this morning with red UP-TC-**** registration. The car had been debadged and the front grille as well had been changed to a No-Logo grille, presumably to avoid recognition/etc. The car was Golden-bronze in color and had a medium sized ding above the rear bumper on the right hand side.
The car was right hand drive.
Any idea as to what a 2009 Acura is doing in delhi?

Are you sure it was an Acura TSX and not a Euro/JDM Accord?

Well it could have been, there is not a lot of difference between the two cars. It is mostly a matter of badging isn't it? and as I said, there were no badges here!

Well, importing a JDM Accord is a hell of a lot easier than getting the permit to import a LHD Acura TSX that's sold only in the US and Canada.

If it helps, I mentioned that the car was RHD, in which case it is probable that it was a 2009 Euro Spec Accord. Question is what was it doing here?

Aren't TC plates temporary ones? Maybe it was designated to be a consulate car down the line? Or maybe someone just brought it along on TR.
