yes they are required by law to give an advertisement in the local papers but it will be maybe after a year or so and will be in some back pages of a daily which one usually misses. Anyways its all decided first hand and theres a motor mafia as i call them operating in the auction. the cars come up for auction depending on their status, i.e if the owner wants to plead the case and file an appeal etc. Its a great place to go to but most cars have either exhorbidant reserve price tags or are settled for already. Theres no trial etc so if you are stuck with a lemon then uve had it

@zakaaasss - what reg was the SL55 you saw ( MH 04 ?? ) ? I have seen a similar car in Pune about 2 weeks back, and i guess this is the same one.
Owner supposedly has a yellow H3 too.

Default SL55 AMG Pune

Ahemm... I'd love to be the bearer of the good news or rather confused news that just last week i saw a sl55 amg parked in my college's parking area in pune... i'm very much sure it was a sl55amg coz i was just gazing the car for about an hour!!

it was a CG registration and yes it did not have badgings on the back except for the badgings on the side...

btw i suspect it belongs to the college owner or was bought by one of his friends or was brought to be sold to him...

his other cars include
a sl55(non amg)
a s350
and a porsche cayenne turbo...

he might have more but i've just seen these many as of now...

(if ur in pune and would like to know which college i'm talking about you can PM me to get the shock of you LIFE!)

cheers,
TD
