Positive. Either MBIL is offering that color of late or its a custom paint job - in which case the angst is even amplified.

A question: Are all these expensive cars fuelled by the Tech Boom in bangalore or is it by something else?

Nope - techies are boring in terms of spending

Boom due to retail and real estate

Youre right that it isnt directly fuelled by the IT sector, but indirectly i think it does play a part - the dramatic growth of industries like hospitality, real estate etc. is due to the IT boom in a big way.

There's this one guy though, drives a modded Honda. We're hoping he buys a Supra in the next coupla months. Seeing as how the chips are up these days and all.
