but in practice the less duty has helped for car companies more than the loss they have because of the copies

I just don't understand how and why people end up spending about Rs.55lac for a 1.8L engined car! Just for the 2-door sporty look?! Posers...

I've seen this SLK a lot of times near Touch.

I wud prefer the SLK 350's 3.5 l engine even if i had to pay 15-20 lacs more over an SLK 200.But wud you consider it over a Boxter S??

Although it has a dull engine note, it is supposed to be better balanced compared to a 350

Had been to Hyderabad last week. Guess what I saw there?
A brand new Bentley Brooklands waiting to get registered at the RTO. Was looking so stately and grand!
I did manage to click a few pics through my camera phone, but they are crappy.

It's probably Vijay Reddy's, the DC newspaper owner. He has every car from Bentley, even the Azure. The man's got a drophead coupe of RR too. So you can imagine what all cars he might have.

Sorry, I can't man. My phone's camera aint that good to post big high res pictures. Those are the largest pics I could post. Wish I'd taken my digital cam with me.

The Bentley Brooklands deserves better and bigger pics. Please post if you have them. The Brooklands looks like a very stately and royal coupe. Also love the engine nomenclature they use... 6 3/4 Litre instead of the 6.75L used on the previous Bentley's.

The plates on the red SLK are sooooo tacky !
Although it's the flavor of the month since James bond released yesterday. But I'd be embarrassed to be running on such plates the year round.

Sorry, but I dont have bigger or better pics than these. Blame it on my sad phone camera. And oh yeah, was gonna mention the 6 3/4 Litre nomenclature. Saw it when the RTO inspector was tracing the chassis number.
