If you look closely in the mini pics. the steering wheel is from the current generation mini.

Also, the wiper fitting is incorrect (when facing the car, the wiper movement should be left to right) or I maybe wrong.

Chop job sure is starting to make sense...

or maybe it has moved in the cavity as it is supposed to when no one is sitting in it/when it is off

@ amatmo
'm not talking about the spirit of ecstasy in the maroon one, 'm talking about the RR logo missing from the alloy wheel of the champagne colored roller

Default Merc Mania.

Thank you swift 8847. The maroon CLS was WB registered. And when i asked the staff about the missing hubcap of the RR, they said that it was 'lost' on the way to Mysore. Looks like RR isnt building cars like they used to, or they have the worst alarm system in the world.

Here are some mercs i've seen around. The silver CLS is the first in the city. The E320 is soo fake ! It's obviously not a 320. The S500 had it's star broken off... The AMG SL stuck in traffic is a sad sight. But Mr. 430's everyday car in front of the 800 looked funny. Anyone knows the speciality of the blue merc ?

yup they look really neat, but it would be better if there wasnt oxidation on the brake discs.

You can see how the underbody has had to deal with the elements. It's certainly not looking too clean to me. It's definitely water, but my guess is it's due to the rain water, rather than baalti ka paani.

Was driving down to vijaynagar via mysore road and just as i was getting off the flyover, lo and behold wot do i see ...a yellow lambo, and 3 porshe carrera s comming from the opposite direction one behind another. All the 3 porshe's were either black or dark greyish in color. An amazing sight and the sound of the 4 cars was really amazing even if the car's were going really slow. The lambo had a nice deep rumble. Couldnt take a snap coz was riding on my bike .

Default Grey 430 Spider.

Well, the red F430 has a specially built enclosure for itself in it's home. But our man here has one upped that guy, by keeping a 'body guard' for his convertible. While i was taking pictures, i started speaking to him, and it turns out that he rides along with the owner, and it's his duty to look after the car when it's parked etc. He also said " i dont know why people keep looking at this car in traffic, and taking pictures". I didnt know how to reply to that. Seen that chap at the owner's house too, dutifully sitting next to the parked car.

Oh, and if anyone can notice, the rear bumper is slightly off. And paint shades dont match. Accident repaired car ?

and in reply to the previous post, the Kahn S rides on 20' front, and 21' rear.
