6. Red Beetle, Black Toureg (in showroom )
7. Audi Q7 3.0 TDI
8. Audi A6
9. SLK55 AMG (in Hoshiarpur; wasn't in position to take pic; and it was racing with a Skoda Superb in streets. They were ripping hard!).

The cars look nice, especially the Lexus. But what's with the weird exhaust tips on the SEL?

S class interior wood does not match - some bits are different pattern, rear spoiler missing but yest the car seems intact. The exhaust tips are add ons and seem to have separated/rusted/been hit. Dent on left side of bonnet. Car certainly not ship shape. The less said about quoted price the better

+1.

Doesn't really make much sense dishing out 6 lacs for that machine.


Regards.

Haha, and the seats on that W126 480SEL were like a sofa.

The spoiler was removed temporarily for something. Don't know what.

I'm sure it can go for Rs. 5 lakhs or near.

Not more than 3.5 lakhs for that Merc. And I would like to have those seat covers removed and the spoiler reinstalled if I were to buy that old lady.
Also at about 3-4 lakhs, the W124 makes more sense.

@cruiser

What made you check out the 'New Beetle' (for VW 'new = just decade old') ? You told you don't really like the original, am surprised to see you interested in this new one.
Hmmmm..are you replacing your Matiz with another 'Dolly' car?

Regards.
+1 to that. High 2's and low 3's if you ask me she is not completely original my hunch is a lot is different which you will only see when you see the car physically don't get carried away by the body kit spoiler etc
