Spotted this Lexus LS430 during my usual morning walk/jog.
The interiors were neat.
(Black leather interiors).

That XC90 is from our area itself.
Around 4 pm today I saw it enter the BDA.

Here is a pic which I took a few weeks back near my house.
The XC90 looks massive. not like the Q7 which is mamoth is presence.

Not in this case. The badging is incorrect and the wheels are probably the original. Harrier's cheaper to buy and import, hence this is done with many Toyotas which pose as Lexus' in India.

The 3 looks great. Finally! I was waiting to see if someone would finally modify a foreign sedan such as a 3 series or a 5 series. Have a lot of modded C-classes, E-classes, 3 series and 5 series.

By the way, does it have a body kit? Doesn't seem to have one to me.

It does look smashing indeed! 20" are just to big for Indian roads IMO.

There was a superb looking silver 530d with an M5 body kit lurking around Indiranagar some time ago. The front and rear bumpers and the 19" wheels were M5 all the way! From a distance, you could easily pass it off as an M5 and in fact, I did. Unfortunately, those were the days when I wasn't blessed with a camera phone

It sure does. I think all it needs is a good exhaust note and it's good to go.

Exhaust?? For all you know it could be a diesel

Spotted 3 X-Trails and 3 Tiena's at The Zuri today. Don't know if its their's, but one X-Trail was a red one, never seen that colour before.

This silver 530d shares the stable with a White Maserati Quattroporte

First customer car in Bangalore. I loved the way they were assembling small parts of the car there. And the symbol comes wrapped in a small packet

Approx 58 big l's on the road. Depending on trim levels. The showroom also had the city's first CLS320 CDI.

Nice find, look great in white! How many cars got booked in B'lore?

I guess that the CLS 320 CDI is there for quite few while ago!


Spotted these SUVs on my last visit; Cayenne at Forum & Q7 some where near Indira Nagar!

According to the sales exec i spoke to, 10 cars have been booked so far. From my experience, it is a huge improvement over the previous gen E Class. Finally, competition for the 5 Series...

And that CLS320 CDI was brand new. The GM of the dealership told me it had just come in, plus was the first diesel CLS in the city.
