Totally agree to what you said about the Premier Padmini. i just love the exhaust note of the Premier Padmini not because i own one...but in general. infact the exhaust note from a stock premier padmini S1 is mind blowing. no comments about the ones with custom made glass pack / straight thrus with headers - perhaps the best sounding cars in India.

love the sound of the opel corsaz and astraz.
