Saw Bentley FS near Nandini Kormangala signal in silver color. Any Idea who's this was. The number was not special or VIP or anything.

Manish has done it yet again. Now I'm tired of saying thank you to Manish. Name a car and its pics will be here on the thread in 12 hours. Thats manishasrani for you! Great job done brother. The VW indeed looks good and sturdy considering the winger and all those so called people carriers.

The VW Transporter is in the Merc Viano class and the Winger and TT are no where close to its build quality.Its what money gives you.

what i meant to say is , that for a change, it was good to see a top class mini van other than the TT and Winger types that we see on indian roads everyday. We see a lot of great imported cars, but how many of these people movers do we come across on indian roads.

Saw this white BMW 320d on HAL road two days back. It had some INSANE rims, probably 20" or more. Any one spotted this?? Manish?

The owner is a regular visitor to our shop.

He was running 10j rims at the rear and 8j rims at the front. 20 inchers. BBS wheels but he has replaced the BBS wheelcap with BMW wheelcaps.

Front was 225 section tyres and rear was 235. 10j is too wide for 235 and he was having problems. He kept feeling that the tyre isnt seating properly on the rim and that is because it wasnt.

He came today again but I was busy. My colleague told me that he was changing it and putting thicker tyres at the rear.

However, when I spoke to him a few days ago, he said that he cant put thicker tyres at the rear as he would have to do suspension mods on the car which would void the warranty.
