Check this link to check the model of BMW yuvi has or had. It was sure a head turner and road burner.
Yes Yuvi had a E46 M3 which was yellow in colour but i think he has the E90 M3 Cabrio now.Red in colour.

Of course I learnt that with Scorcher's original post on that. Did you not read? I also just said that my doubt had arose from the fact that some websites also call it roadster.

Not an exciting topic to continue with. Please.

This picture of Maybach is from Punjab. As u can see on Number plate. The owner of this Maybach is from Ludhiana. A Namdhari spent about 5.50 crore on this car. And now he is takin full care of this baby. Note the Marble finished flooring and the glass wall. Special room for this special car.

Punjabi Nahi kise to Kat.

In those days, Mercs were the most desirable cars on sale and BMW had zero presence. Considering that I saw so many imports within a few hours, I wonder what would have been the situation now specially in Ludhiana, which is often regarded as the Merc capital of India. Punjab sure has lots of exotics. Now we need some pics on this thread to prove it.

I agree with you, Ludhiana as heard is known for Mercedes. Once read in Economics Times that City had maximum number of mercedes cars compared to any city in India as per people ratio.

Pheww ! Atlast, a pic of the Maybach other than the second pic. Good find buddy, i've been seeing the other pic for ages.

AFAIK, the owner(some baba i guess) did'nt spend a penny on the car, as it was gifted to him by a 'very' pleased devotee.

Yea,It was gifted to him by his follower.I have heard somebody left the car in front of his place with the keys and papers. Thats what i have heard.
But this is something i want to see in flesh but never came across. especially the back seat with a glass partition where you can control the transparency and how opaque the partition glass will look.And the button to close the door even.Its too long to get the hands on.But still RR phantom will be the choice if given a chance.

These are in no way called as exotics. And from Punjab we are not expecting these. I am sure there will be lots of biggies

Yes its the head of the Namdharis Baba Jagjit Singh.

Also on the GT Road (driving from Ludhiana) there is an unofficial Mercedes workshop near Phagwara. Always lots of Mercs parked there for a service.

Jazzy B also has some sort of Hummer at his home in Nawansher district.

It wouldn't be wrong to say that this workshop also contributed to the number of mercedes sold in the region in last 2 decades+. They hardly have time to revive some of the beauties shattering in their workshop for years.

Also a very very good place for old merc hunters.

Here is a pic of a Nissan pick-up (don't know which model) that I first spotted in Jalandhar-Pathankot highway and again in the Pathankot city but finally snapped it in Jammu.
