Wow!! very nice and a different kind of travelogue. I guess you still have a lot more to post

Ahem..you were talking something about 'more beauty per square metre' than any other place. I find it hard to believe you. So, please show some proof regarding this (in other words, "Where are those pics, pal??)


Btw, the Ford Ikon/Fiesta hatch looks very ugly

Nice pics! Found that European countries that do not have a national brand have a diverse car buying habits. esp north and east.

Thats a Opel Tigra coupe like someone mentioned.
Based on Corsa platform its a B-segment sports car like the Ford Puma and FIAT Coupe. The segment is pretty much dead now and all the aforementioned cars have been killed. Sad ainnit?

Yeah, I could bet it was a Toyota, but when someone here said its a Volvo, I let go because I am not too much into SUVs or premium sedans - do admire them on the streets, but that's it.

I hear you. Pics coming - I don't have the time or enough pics to put up a different thread, so will have them here itself.

Some more pics (of cars) :

1) A sexy C-class I saw at St.Mark's Cathedral - the guy was running it all over the divider while trying to turn it around.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0153.jpg

2) Front view of the "C".
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0154.jpg

3) The Kia Sorento
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0179.jpg

4) Our own Zen - branded the "Alto" here.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0182.jpg

5) And the Esteem - badged the Swift. The "4WD 16-Valve" sticker on the side was interesting.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0187.jpg

6) Another sexy Peugeot - 206 CC. And is that a Fusion in front of it ?
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0192.jpg

7) A Porsche. Need I say more.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0194.jpg

8) A BMW - Dont remember what series it was.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0195.jpg

9) An Alfa Romeo - notice how it is parked.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-img_0198.jpg

10) See how the rear wheel of the Alfa is half on the kerb and half in air.

Very nice thread and pics @Supreme. The variety in such a small space is really interesting. By the way, i hope the Mrs. hasn't read your remarks about the "models".. Keep the pics coming.

I had asked my colleague to check the make of the sports coupe - and he says it is a SAAB. He did not mention which model of SAAB though - I think there was only the SAAB label on the car.

I saw that it was debadged. Dunno if the bugger put a SAAB sticker on it.
But anyway..thats a Gen1 Tigra. You can check on google or wiki. SAAB doesnt make any such coupes. Used to make a 3dr 900 fastback.

The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-014.jpg

The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-040.jpg

3) A Skoda Superb
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-042.jpg

6) An Esteem hatch, badged Swift
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-065.jpg

7) The Hyundai i30 I mentioned in a previous post - was surprised to see it was a hatch - was expecting to be a sedan.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-069.jpg

8) A Cayenne - sorry for the bad pic though.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-076.jpg

9) The Dodge Avenger - muscular.

The taxi to the airport was an Elantra. Was very well maintained and looked to be like 2-3 years old. The odo showed 2lakh+ kms.

Yes, it is. The Spark (and the erstwhile Matiz) are favourite hatches here.


Some more snaps :

1) The Mitsu Montero
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-088.jpg

2) Chevy Kalos - our own U-VA
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-089.jpg

3) Renault Scenic
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-095.jpg

4) Another view of the Citroen DS, which I posted earlier
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-099.jpg

5) A Jeep - dont remember which model though
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-107.jpg

6) The Chrysler 300 - impressive
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-114.jpg

7) The rim it was shod with
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-115.jpg

8) A Suzuki sedan - did not have the time to go check the rear for the model. Anyone knows what model this is ?
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-118.jpg

9) A car from ages past.
The Serbian car scene - You have it all here.-serbiaday2-124.jpg

10) The Palio Stilo from the front. And as someone mentioned, yes, this car is BIG - not in the Stile league like I thought when I saw it from the rear earlier.
