P.S:Mods plz merge this thread if there is one already existing.Though i couldn't find one.

All the cars with the same number plate as the model number belong to Diwan housing. I know this because my dealer who sold me his sl500 told me this and the thing about the Ferrari is also true.

Yeah, i know the fact that it belongs to Diwan builders. A friend of mine knows them, and he had told me about his jaw-dropping collection of cars!

Most often the S8 is spotted being followed by a V12 A8. Both cars in black. The surprising bit is that the owner drives the v12 A8 while the guards follow in the S8

Which CCD? I don't think I have ever sat at a CCD from afternoon to night
My badge is very much intact(touch wood) so either your eyes are deciving you or my badge is decieving me
You probably saw another car with same plates-525, there are a few of those. Best way to distinguish my car- silver plates!

Stirring up an old thread. Spotted this (W12?) on Linking Road, Bandra last week. I love the rims.

Also spotted the S-8 registered S8 near Mochamojo, about a month back. I was driving, and the camera is a phone cam. Quality sucks.

yup the linking road 1 is unmistakably a 6.0 w12. Il never mistake those fabulous rims for an S8's. Yeah the S8 has sexy ones too but these surely belong to the w12.
