Here is a pic from my side. I am sure these Goans must have harassed you since you have a non GA plate

Also noticed that all the airbags had inflated.
yea the drunk guy in alto hit it..he was injured pretty badly too. Police was actually quite cooperative as the other party was drunk so all the blame went to him and since we were only visiting the city they didnt mind the non-GA plates.

But where and how did this happen?

Usually we have big problems if you have a accident and you dont have GA reg plate. The blame no matter what is always on the non goan car. Your lucky to get away.

Actually Goa Police is very nice, I dont think they will act foolishly around tourists.

I am not talking in the police point of view but in the view of the witnesses and the victims of the accident. They like to twist stories.

@ ecksreturns
Agree with you on Mr. Tata's quote. Obviously he wont be as direct as i was.
BTW todays Times has a quite a bit to say about the Loss making part though.

I saw the alto today which crashed into spiff's 530D and it looks like the BMW is damaged more compared to the alto.

Thats bad for the new car. Glad you guys were safe. Must have been hurting to see the car in such shape. Whats the estimated recovery time ?

Spotted this on the wreckedexotics site. A Porche Cayenne Turbo. It says this was done by an Indian automotive journalist going too fast for his own good somewhere in India.

Anyone have any idea who this was?

After seeing the 911 type 997 Carrera, I'm in tears I can't believe it! Why can't people be a little more careful while driving, especially when it's a Porsche
