@anekho - thanks for the videos of the R8 on the ECR, did you get any videos of the engine from the cabin when the car was running?

the road scares me with its crazy cabs and share autos, more so with its narrowness. The Volvo bus drivers have a tough time managing the drive as the road is just not wide enough...

Well no, I just found these videos online

Yes the ECR can get quite frustrating to drive on at times, but when traffic is less, its bliss! Do those share autos travel beyond toll? I always thought they just u-turned and headed back to Thiruvanmiyur!

That's the coolest, most extraordinary 'car spotting' in this forum IMHO.

Cannot believe that anyone associated with a machine that exudes as much class as an Aston Martin,even standing still,could have indulged in anything as crass as the plates mentioned by Unknownsatan and partially seen in the pics.
The pistol 7 could be forgiven,Pondicherry framed in a rifle stock does the car no favours!
My opinion,with offence intended,please,please,give that Aston an ID it wouldnt mind wearing.

Well all i can say is the part i have blanked out is even worse I have never seen even cab guys in bangalore doing such a plate. Honestly, it is his money his taste, but a bad one at it.
