Had a chance to park a Tuned Toyota Supra by AR motosport. What a dream it was. The exhaust drone and the challenging judgement making because of the huge bonnet. Seating position (like seating almost on the floor on the racing seat). Phew..I was literally sweating.

P.S. I didn't realize that my 600th post would sum up all my supercar and sports car experience
I'm guessing the ones in bold belong to Karan.

Umm , Shaimak Lambo and the Aston do belong to KD . But the SLS was some other one . Not KD's and same goes for the Nissan GTR and the Audi R8 V8.

The most exiting car I have driven is the ford mustang GT 500. The best one I have been driven around in is a F360 modena.

Thats a nice selection of rides,particularly that A8 W12.Siliguri seems to have some nice cars also.

Do make an ownership thread of the BMW 330i.There are few on the 320D,but not on the 330i.

Yes Sir, I definitely will, in due time. It is more useful buying such sport sedans in Siliguri, contrary to general idea. You go 5 kms out of city in any direction and you have good twisty roads up the hills, perfect for such cars. You can also actually let the sunroofs open unlike in polluted metros

Only last year there were only 2 BMWs in Siliguri including us, today there are 7 with many more on order. The small town that Siliguri is, I know all of them
Also 3 Mercs, 1 Land Cruiser, 2 Montero, 2 Superbs, etc

Not to sir me,i am just 22 .Good to know that your BMW is put to good use,with the pathetic roads of Kolkata,i guess siliguri is a better option!And twisties is a Beemers favorite hunting ground.Also the exclusivity of owning such a car there must be gratifying!

Also yes i am sure many other trading,tea and other business barons in Siliguri keep good cars at their offices and houses in Kolkata,but good to see wealth spreading elsewhere.

Drove an M1 today, still to realize the senses. They are sold in such small numbers currently, the dealer said that only 350 came this season for the whole of NA. How authentic this is, I am not sure but the car is awesome, so agile and amazing to see and feel how it holds to the tarmac at 90+ mph (did it on two occasions, at I-64). I am keen on owning this little M product, amazing to see both M1 products to be so perfect, hats off Germans (Leica M1 and the Beemer M1).

Damn these Indian import restrictions.
