That looks like a Golf IV unless it is hiding something underneath or we are getting a stripped out special

You mean Evo VII, right? That did belong to a 19 year old Kodava boy who lived near Lavelle Rd, more like Richmond Town actually.

The only Evo X, white at that, belongs to someone who has 2 CMs at home.

Default Evo 10

I agre with V1p3r. The Evo 10 belongs to a politically connected chap, and the EVO 7 belongs to another. I go to the same gym as the EVO 7 guy, and have never seen a 10 there. But the 10 goes past my office almost everyday, and i see the same person driving it.

It looks like Mk.5, Ajmat, the wraparound headlights gives it away. Its on Euro plates (carnet?) and looks like Bosch is messing around with it. Usually OEMs don't work with something that out of production.

Is that Golf Mk5 used as a test car by VW because Audi were using 2 A3s in Mumbai as a test car and they were too on german plates

The Evo VII guy is so big that he had to push the seat all the way back and it was still a tight fit. No one can sit behind him. That car was a real piece of work, though. Would annihilate anything this side of a supercar.
