there is a silver 2008 landcruiser in delhi... seen it a couple of times the past month......has good road presence because of its huge size
its a shame that toyota came up with this after 7 long years.... i was expecting some major improvements .....though the lx570 is not as bad......

Spotted the chrome SL55 AMG which is not chrome anymore. They simply actually "peeled" the chrome off IMO.

The current dealer wasn't impressed with the chrome job. it was just a layer on top of the paint.

I dont think they peeled off the chrome else you would see black underneath. The car seems to have been repainted in silver again.

Are you guys VERYYY sure?! Because that by no means looks like a new paint job. The dealer told me that the chrome was chipping off and didn't mention anything about black underneath.

Yes positive. This car is repainted in silver. When you do a chrome job you always apply black as a base coat and then do the chrome job. The wheels of the car are also back to silver again.

Cool Spotted the twins!!!!

Spotted both the Scagliettis outside C.S.T. station at 3:35pm on the way back from the HAIG rally. They were being followed by a mini truck kind of a thing (which I did not bother to look at) which was loaded with media photographers. One of them was later revved up a bit at a signal....what a roar, or rather neigh that was.
P.S.: No pics since cellphone's battery was down.
