I do go car hunting from time to time, but I like your sense of humourcheers:

The reason I said that was because, I've heard the Audi salesperson saying that more than 30 Q7s were booked till last year from Audi Hyderabad. Having said that, some of them might have gone to the other parts of A.P . But still, I can remember at least 10 diff. reg. nos on various Q7s that i have spotted !! So I think its a big ask to keep track of precisely how many Q7s are there on our roads.

yup you are right. May be we can get togeather and go car hunting. Judging by the interest you have in the cars, you would know a lot more than I do and it would really help, I am still new to this.

Nice photos btw!



Lol. Maybe..either way owning a newspaper seems the ideal way to buy awesome cars!
My Friend's Dad owns the Pioneer.
And has a E280Cdi as his best car.

But then he's not too big an enthusiast.

Okie guys, went to Puma today at Jhills and saw the M3 zip past. I was like woah! And after I was done shopping, I was riding back home and waiting at the cyber towers signal and call it my sweet luck or what but the same M3 again zipped towards the IT park. I wanted to have a nice look this time and I followed it. This guy was doing good speeds of ~120ish till Mindspace. My friend sitting as pillion tried to snap a few pics while I ripped my puny 200cc bike to catch up. And finally on the straight road going towards gachibowli, he sped off at speeds of about 200+. Pretty sure of that as I was at ~120 trying to catch up. the exhaust note was just exotic!!!

Not sure what everyone thinks about this car, but I feel it looks a little abnormal with the top up. As an open top, it looks nice...

That E93 M3 looks like it's still running on temp reg plates, so it's probably new and the owner should be keeping her under 170 Km/h or he's not running her in right. Sad.

Or Maybe he's waiting for a number of his choice.

furioussphinx has mentioned it doing 200 but thats not a calculated figure or something.
Maybe he's doing a 170 or something below that.

If he is doing over 170 and before the said period, then REALLY SAD

By the way E93?

The white gallardo was LP560 and was a demo I guess, dunno if it has been bought by someone.

One Raju (probably connected to Satyams) own a black gallardo convertible and the pictures are linked in this thread - Page 3, post #32.
