SL600BENZ is the ID of a forum member. And there are a lot of SL55s with SL500 badging. Helps reduce import duties.

ahh... i get it! Sorry about that! Anyway, i'm sure all the sl55's that come in with the 500 badge are changed back as they drive out of customs. Because i know half the sl55's in Delhi, are SL 350's and a few are sl 500's!

Spotted a BMW 3 series in Bangalore on the ORR, near Marathalli. Looks like its already taken a small knock from behind.

Well, now they're just ghar ki murgi type cars. Not supercars, not imports!

Yeah. Anyday the ol' 3 series (320i ?) looked way better. The tail-lights look so If i had the money I'd rather skip this and settle for somethin else.

I agree with you Aditya... the older 3 series looked much better, and had a definite sense of character about them. The newer ones seem to be lost on their identity itself, save the fact that they come from the BMW lineage.

Yeah, the new 3 series is pretty good. I like it. But when the new C comes and they're put side by side, which looks better might be easier to decide!

Spotted a red 350Z on Church Street. Unregistred I think. Good to note that the driver was putting the vehicle to good use unlike most such cars.
