Scorcher, your friend who owns the Audi R8 (first in TVM I believe), just noted that's for sale in Olx (http://olx.in/item/2012-audi-r8-4-2-...tml#3c63303c2c)
Any idea what's the upgrade going to be?

The yellow LP 560-4 was the replacement I suppose

Nope, that was another car. That was the red R8 from Thrissur which was replaced by the LP. This is the Trivandrum car; Red V8 with black roof and V10 wheels.

Yesterday was one of those days when I regretted not having a dash-cam installed.

Was driving from Kayamkulam to Kollam around 4PM, when after Karunagapally, I see a black monster approaching. Before I could say Hummer, it went past - seemed to have Gulf plates (carnet vehicle?).

Before I could recover from the regret of not having a camera handy, a white Porsche SUV goes past with flowers stuck on the bonnet. Unregistered new vehicle - as part of some wedding I guess. A few minutes later, there comes another white Porsche SUV, accompanied by a BMW and a Merc SUV.

I doubt I have ever seen so many exotics within a few minutes of each other.

And is it me...or have I been seeing too many Mini Cooper S in Kochi these days. I noted a red, blue and a white one so far within 2 days.

Seen this car today as well and while it's amazing looking, those horrible rims just spoil the overall regal look of the car.

Rim colours on the Aston and chrome treatment on the Patrol. Change these and both would look great.

That looks like the gun-brandishing-security-guard-killing-now-jailed fellow's Aston. The rims look crappy.
Wonder if the guy who did it was color blind.

Saw a PB registered white M3 in Thrissur (parked at the doc's workplace). Wasn't his M3, DL registered ?

Also the Rolls trio is now joined by a new Panamera.

@autotranny - Doc's old M3 Convertible has made way for a new 6-speed Manual Coupé. Presently PB, will be re-regd soon.

It's just been supercharged and I went on a ride in it last weekend. 585 horses at the tap. The way it pulls is unreal!
