Bhavi Motors, Milan Subway. They have their own compound off SV road so didnot really have to go onto that horrible subway street. Mine is Llumar and great so far. No experience with 3M

Thanks man
Repairs - Absolutely flawless & fantastic. Extremely happy with the job quality. Best part is , the sheet of metal is NOT new, its the same one as before. Replacing the damaged area with new sheets would have increased costs substantially. Besides, had he ( service manager ) not told me about the same sheet of metal being repaired, no one could have guessed it. Looks as good as new.

Looks evil man, can blow the C Class & 3 Series away into oblivion!! The A4 has such a clean timeless design. What makes your car special is the white colour and that torque monster under the hood. Congrats on getting her back.

Check V-Kool out too. I've made a directory entry of a highly recommended dealer at Prabhadevi.

...more than the white colour its that peach of an engine inside which is unbelievable

By the way, about V Kool , had checked it out before i opted for Llumar. There is a V Kool store here at Andheri on SV road. Found it irrationally priced.

Sweet pictures Narendra. The car looks beautiful in the natural surroundings. I think we need to do another German car photo session soon.

It would be great if Sahil joined us with the 5 Series as well and at the same time have the other 6 cylinder monster from my garage in the same frame too

good to know ! ...in my eyes i am quite a PATHETIC photographer !
Another photoshoot...cant wait ! Sahil's car would be a great inclusion ( IMO the e60 5 and b8 A4 are probably the best looking sedans on our streets ) & that 6 CYLINDER addition from your garage...now THAT , would be some serious space occupier ! beauty !

I saw your review. But in that the film looks highly reflective. K14 is supposed to be quite dark and non reflective. Can you confirm that it looks reflective only in those pics? If that is so ill go ahead and get it since its only 1k more than 3M.

Also the guy says it wont be a problem removing my existing film.

And dippy what is your 6 cylinder ride?

It's a little difficult if your film has been on for long. Needs to be done with a solution and a blade carefully.

It's a highly modified Honda CBZ. No kidding.

I believe that Audi now plans to offer the 7speed S-Tronic on the Audi 3.0 TDI, I say this because the specs page

http://www.audi.in/etc/medialib/ngw/...ure_sept10.pdf

which earlier showed triptronic for 3.0 tdi now shows S-Tronic.

The monster just got more desirable and meaner.
