Thats a Toyota Estima/Previa owned by the hinduja's. It resides near cauvery theatre next to the palaca grounds.Seen it quite often.

Speaking of Alphards, i spotted one too. Albeit this was a KL reg and was driving towards bangalore.Oh I forgot to mention. I'm vacationing in ooty. Pics when I get back to BLR.

I have spotted the marroon CLS a couple of times, once at the electronic showroom close to sony world junction and second time at HSR layout.

Saw a beautiful hatch named "IBIZA" in Electronic City yesterday. It was a dazzling red and beautiful hatch. Not sure if other TBHPians already seen it. I love the design of that car and its top natch build quality. couldn't get a picture as i was driving. BTW, it is from a company called SEAT

Yeah think that SEAT is a test mule of some sort. Spotted it a while ago, but was on the phone so no pic possible. But i knew Asrani would have got it anyway
Manish chuck whatever you're presently doing and apply at the DRI as a snoop, when you get bored there open a detective agency. lol

I think the same. Cos I've seen this very car in Pune ( Chinchwad to be precise ) about a month back.
Butt.. since it is running on consulate plates, there's also a possibility that someone from the consulate staff is on a road trip of some sorts.

I confirm it is a test mule. My friend is test driving it around. Its a mule for the upcoming Polo. The Ibiza is built on the same platform.
Off Topic but Similar to this, Honda have started testing their diesel engine here on the american version of the Accord. I saw it going towards ooty yesterday while i was driving to BLR.

Hello there,
Yesterday, our very own Manish had his 15 mins of fame on prime-time TV.
He had come on a car show on TV9 along with the Mobile Store Phantom.

Cheers!

Sorry but what car was that ? Is it that common everywhere ?
Gees I don't even know the complete specs of this beast.
Pray tell me, someone.
