I thought the pic with the Yeti was for that green SUV (Nissan Patrol?) leaving the petrol bunk.

That's what it was all about, not the Yeti but the green Patrol i.e. Thanks, @anekho.

Yesterdays chennai edition of The Hindu newspaper also mentioned the same.

The Hindu : FEATURES / METRO PLUS : Up close with Audi


Deccan Chronicle Article : Of show offs and simpletons

.... Just as the paparazzi were focussing on the glam-set at the event, walked in a man dressed in grungy casuals and absolutely no air about himself. But minutes later, he drove off in a car that costs nearly 1 crore 50 lakhs. Simplicity check, sophistication check, show-off not at all! And who was the man? Rathna Kumar, the son of the proprietor of Rathna Stores.

This is nothing surprising and is quite common in Chennai. Have seen very simple folks who are incredibly rich and drive expensive cars.

I particularly remember the simply dressed MAC who went around in a British racing green Jaguar V12.

I always expected that a certain purveyor of silks (to whom I am most grateful for his patronage of music), always to be seen in the simplest of white shirt and vesti, might have a white Ambassador to match --- but I saw him arrive at a function, last week, in a Mercedes.

Errrr ! I believe that imports are cars that YOU import yourself and not available officially, locally, not the ones that the company imports (CBU, CKU etc) and sells it through a dealer here in India. In that case, even the accord and camry were imports and still are.
