thanks mugan power but i just wanted to see the cars present there..you know the best way of looking at india's imported car scence is through the garages of imported car dealers as its only after looking at their car you can realise the general prefernce of indians in importing cars
are you getting my point? the cars available or spotted there will be similar to those at delhi(well generally) every age has its own set of popular imports..it was different 5 yrs ago..it was different 10 yrs ago..you know what i mean ,right? so i am curious about these picture just to understand that



EG. 10-12 yrs ago a common sight was daimbler super8/jaguarXJ or Chevrolet caprice and there were many other B+, c segment and d segment cars which were not very well known(eg. isuzu trooper,toyota starlet,nissan serena,toyota cera,chevrolet corsica,honda crx,ford fairmont...the list is endless)


but today you might find only above 30 lacs being imported(generally)
cause if it is below 25 lac range indians have reasonably good choices in india itself they dont take the pain of importing them like they did ten years ago


also looking at imported dealers car collection we can know about the present segment leaders
EG. today you might find that Volvo,Jagaur,Cadillac have lost against BMW ,benz ,audi,lexus etc

i had come across a 450slc in delhi walking distance from the house but the owner and my brother was not budgeing from their respective price and so no common ground was formed. then suddenly a month later the car dissapeared.

Well as a matter of fact there is nothing left in the building parking lot in Koregaon Park now. Everything is parked next to what you see in this picture.

I know dude...the pump guy is my fren's friend, but he told that his staff wont allow to snap..but I badly need to copy the LS to my cam..hence I simply fueled my car for the fotos...and snapped it from inside the car
