I think that model designation stripe that run along the sides looks good only on the mad GT3 RS and looked good on the classic 2.7 Carrera RS! And yes the Boxster Spyder and maybe the Sport Classic too! But it won't just gel with a standard Turbo or the Carrera posted by manish IMO,unless you have deep dish chrome lipped Fuchs/BBS rims to match! Then we're talkin'...!
I couldn't agree with you more Ayan! And yes, that 'model designation' stripe would look odd without adequate ammunition (read, wheels, et al) But then again, if I were to get a Porsche, I wouldn't hesitate throwing in a tasty set of deep-dish wheels, the X51 package and the stripe for good measure!

Now that's a super Supra! Buy does it look good! I love it! My only grouse is the wheels which IMO doesn't do justice to the car. I'd prefer something else on it! But it's just my opinion! Great car, nonetheless! It just got even better looking!

Convey my to your friend, Manish!

Now that's what you call an off-roader! Something about a set of knobby tyres and a snorkel that tingles my senses! What an amazingly hot Patrol! And the same goes for the Land Rover Defender and even the Scorpio!

IMO, this is what all SUVs should look like! Not like that 26" wheel-ed Hummer H2!

Yeah, one of the macho off roader. And it performed really well. The owner was using the way it was supposed to be used.
For all the action check out the OTR thread in 4X4 section. loads of pictures of Scorp,jeep,Willys,patrol, defender etc..

A couple of months ago, Manish had posted pictures of an Audi A8L 3.0 TDI wearing large RS6 wheels. Honestly, I didn't think it suited the car then. Until I ran into it today!

Boy oh boy do they look sweet! Sweet as hell! I'm telling you guys, pictures just don't do enough justice to this car and its nifty set of wheels! After clicking them, I look at the picture and I said to myself, "Naaw, it looks way better! How did it come out like this!?"

Maybe I need to get a better cam!

Splendid pics, Suhaas

The otherwise bland A8 looks really mighty with those rims - nice to see super luxo car owners getting rims like these!

My My ! Someone just became Senior-Bhpian, Congrats !
I tried to get a few pictures of the interior but I wasn't allowed to! Sorry! But It was something else, Scorchy! The interiors were mind blowing! The leather was so supple and the aura was just something else! I could tell that he had upgraded the ICE and other things as well!

Well, not really senior! I've been on T-BHP for hardly a year!

EDIT: P.S. Nice catch, Manish! I remember spotting a red FTO on Residency road almost everyday way back in school! Some 'car-nuts' who happened to be my friends were hell bent on proving to me that it was a Ferrari!

Nice pic manish. I guess I have seen the same red FTO at St.Marks Street once or may be it was a 3000GT, not quite sure.
@suhaas- congratulations mate on becoming a senior-BHPian

you sure it wasnt just the b&o sound system because that does a look pretty aftermarket.

Yes, even i have my doubts for similar reasons and, why would anyone want to get aftermarkets when what he have is nothing less of a PUB Rocker ?

The difference between the Mitsubishi FTO and the Mitsubishi 3000GT is quite stark, //M! Forget he looks, one is powered by a 4-pot mill that barely makes 120 horses while the other is a 300 horsepower sports car that threatened the Nissan 300ZX and the Honda NSX during its days!

I was too dumb-struck to notice the ICE upgrades Scorcher and Akshay! The guy who I spoke to only got 'Oohs' and 'Aahs' from me! Did you say it looks aftermarket, Akshay?

EDIT: Oh, now I remember! He said that he had installed the optional screens behind the front head-restraints. I was confused as I thought that it comes standard and he said he'd made some changes to it and the ICE! I didn't bother asking him anything more!

I think the Headrest Screens are Standard on the A8 ! That is nothing Aftermarket.

OT - You must actually experience the B&O in A8 once, then if you think if anyone can repace it with something else(whatever be it) You will be the first one to point a finger at him (or flash one atleast).
