I see something written on the body of the SLK too.
Except the Rims, this also contributes to the fact of ruining a perfectly beautiful machine.

Spotted a silver SLK 350 in Santhome yesterday night driven by one of the female artists of the kana kanum kalangal show in Vijay TV.

Great find Sivasankar, Love the 7. And the rims are my favourite on the 7, the 20' Y spokes. Love it !

OT - I think the 7 is SWB. Or is it just me ??
That is exactly what I was thinking when I went to bed, after posting that. What I actually wanted to say is that the owner seems to have a taste for 12 cylinder engines. The Phantom and BMW(v12) and the Audi and the Bentley(w12).
Was too lazy to get up and edit.

The writing on the SLK is one of the Thirukurals.

"Karka kasadara Katravai Katrapin
Nirka atharku thaga"

Meaning - Educate yourself well and then stand by what the education has taught to you.

Is that the SLK 200? They have the most bland looking wheels IMO.

Ah, the Just delivered look, Love it !

Again, The A6 doesn't qualify as an import buddy. Hence, Make sure of that in future.

@ Scorcher - Pardon my lack of knowledge, but why doesn't the A6 qualify as an import?
