Congrats ecks for the Rangie, awesome machine and a definite road cred. I am wondering will your entourage follow you anymore once you're inside the RR?

Ecks, just curious here - what rides below the 30 Lakh price point do you own?

It would be interesting to see what a supercar owner chooses in that price range!

Cheers!

@ecks - Great to see that you are going for the Range Rover... I feel you should have gotten an Arnage Black Edition...

King of the Road, thats how the Ad for Range Rover goes. Congrats Ecks and I love everytime I say it since there's always something exotic added to your garage and someone's dream car in our forum. You are for sure a responsible buyer.

Ecks, where are the high-res pictures of the DBS?? Why you hiding it from us?

OTOH would you plan mods on the Rangie? This Project Kahn RR Sport Supercharged RS600 looks tempting

you cant mod and soup up all the vehicles. i mean this rangie looks like its made for tarmacs only... totally killing the purpose of the rangie itself!

and ecks want one for offroading... you cant do stuffs like this and put so low profile tyres and then go offroading... it will make your spine rattle with its hard hitting ride! its better to get a BMW X6M or Porsche Cayenne turbo instead if you want a really fast suv for tarmacs only!

Don't even think of mentioning the X6 bro . It must be having a pretty good engine but the flappy paddle gearbox in that is useless . It cant even climb 15 degrees wet grass ( Source : TopGear Season 14 Episode 7 ) And then see the Rangie do the things ! Oh man , you got to see it to believe it

Jeremy Clarkson Rocks !

I'm sure ecks not gonna do that to his Rangie. Then again, He is getting the Big Daddy Range Rover and the one in the pic is the more sane 2010 RR Sport.

Have they started to enforce any speed limits or is it still the old autobahn ways?

I am so jealous of you ecks. Your garage is exactly what I dream of having.
I have an AW M3 6sp. I hate the DCT. Good call on switching to 6 sp. I was told that manual wasn't offered for the M3 in India. It's great to see that it is.
