spotted a white chrysler 300 C opposite, imperial hotel at koramangla last sunday. Also there is a military green old gen rangie parked at sanjay gandhi hospital road at tilak nagar. The vehicle has been lying parked by the roadside for almost 3 weeks now and looks pretty badly maintained. Anybody knows the story behind this rangie.

AFAIK this rangie was once owned by a famous leather guy.It was parked in his factory premises for quite a while too..I'd love to buy this.

Hi Manish.Any news on the veyron in banglore?.And i plan to drive my 911 to bangalore which is the best time to get into the city to avoid as much traffic as possible.And are there any bad stretches.Cos even if there is a 4 or 5 kms of bad stretch then it wont be able to drive a low slung car there.Thanks

I see you have a 997 911 as well . If you driven it around , you would know that the ground clearance is way too good for any roads here. I have taken that car to roads where suv's normally tread and it never once hit the front lip . So drive it where ever you can as ride height should be the least of your worries.

Btw , when did you get the 911 and what all options do you have on it?

Got it three years back.i love the manual.and no options.I drive it mainly on east coast road, to pondichery. its beautiful but a little dangerous. Thats where a ferrari spider crashed..too many villages and no barricades .
Might look at the upgraded turbo with pdk and no other options to keep the price low.Lets see how the year goes

The best time would be early morning or at night.
IMO avoid entering between 10 am and 8 pm.

And after the timings prescribed by Manish, watch out for the millions of cabs we have in b'lore ! Seriously, even at 4 am, you will find cars driving around here. and now with the rains, a visit in a 911 doesnt sound too good. Our own supercars seem to have retreated, till the sun shines again.

p.s. - there is no veyron here.

spotted two Volvo XC90's at jayanagar area, but not at the same time though. One was black and the other was silver. Also spotted a TN registerd white X5.
