I don't think so. Many spot them but they might not have a chance to take pic.

Yesterday, I saw an X6(morning in opposite direction), X5( in night opposite direction) and Lexus 470(I didn't take a pic, since we had enough pic of this car) .

What I meant was : We can no longer classify a BMW 3, 5, 7 or 8 series as a exotic or even a Merc E or S or C series as one..

I get to see both almost everyday

Great pic of the 911, nick. The rims are beautiful - what size? 18" i guess...

That 911 Carrera is stunning indeed!

Those are 19" CarreraSport wheels and they are optional. They do not come standard with the Carrera (unfortunately). The PDK ones come with 19" too but they're different.

8 series?? you mean 6 right? ive never seen an 8 in chennai before..
anyways, i do agree with your point. but worry not, hopefully will be going to the R8 dude place in sometime, with a mutual friend. although i must warn you not to keep your hopes too high on this.. theres just a possibility

Cheers!!

We are not a local business family. The white R8 belongs to us and I am an inactive Team BHPian.

Thank you Bivin. I am not comfortable posting pictures of our R8 on the website. But that does not mean you cannot. If you manage to spot it on our roads and click, then you are most welcome to post pictures. I apologize if I sound like an oxymoron.

Cool. Assuming the above is true i stand corrected.I assumed my source was giving me fact as they work in the auto industry. Anyways, congrats for your car and please do take pics and share them with us here. I hope.

Nice 'catch' and color. Why do almost all imports have Delhi registration?. Why can't a new car in transit from Delhi to any other city in India have temp registration and then be transferred permanently to it's new destination?. Anyways, more spotting luck to everyone.

@vishaldev - Many congratulations on the R8... I saw it on a Saturday, the 9th January in fact

Watching it race down Beach Road was such a pleasure and the exhaust note's a delight to hear.

Afterward I drove back to the Gandhi Beach parking lot where it was parked for sometime, I still remember the heat haze lifting off the engine...

Default Harley Davidson @ the Times Auto & Acessory Expo (YMCA Royapettah)

This Dubai registered Harley was displayed at the Times Auto & Acessory Expo at YMCA Royapettah.

This is also owned by Chemmanur Jewellers in Ampa Skywalk Mall, Aminjikarai.

His Dubai registered Cadillac Escalade was also there. Not posting the pic as its already spotted by many in this thread.
