No Phantoms in Bangladesh. :(

I dont know if you understand Bengali, but it reads:

GARI TUMI KAR? ROYECHO BEKAR.

the direct translation is

Who do you belong to? you're just sitting here idly.

If i'm not mistaken, Mihir owns a golden SL55 with multi-spoke wheels. Not sure if its the same one that was impounded by the DRI or this may be another one. I guess the below car belongs to Mihir :

I guess all SL55's come with a panaromic roof as a standard fitment.

The pics of the care being taken on the truck have been deleted from the original topic.

Hmmm...Thats an interesting pic heavyfoot. I always thought the panoramic roof was a standard fitment on the SL55. Anyways, theres one more way to distinguish between between the impounded SL and the golden one posted above. The pillars. The golden one posted above has the pillars painted in black. Can anyone post pics of the impounded car?? Rehaan, have you saved those pics?

Hey V12 bro, Just found a Sl55 AMG picture which was apparently clicked by you. This one too does not have a Panaromic roof

AFAIK the Golden SL55 impounded by the DRI was indeed Mihir's car.

i know we are dragging this topic..but the SL55 which was impounded was silver right? Atleast Balenopower who started that thread mentioned that it was silver.

SInce the pics were taken in the night or late evening, i guess balenopower may have been confused with the color. I had saved the pics of the car on my HD, but it got formatted.
