Is there a black cayenne in bangalore? I thought I saw one in jayanagar about 25 days back in the night. Was an suv, porsche headlights. Couldn't take a second look as I was going in the opp direction and it went past quite fast.

You there is one. You may catch it outside the Manipal/MAHE building on Airpot road. Guess it belongs to that family.

Yeah, except if it's the same one I think it is, the fellow has gone and put Porsche badging on the front. He expects people to think it's a Boxster.

Oh, OK. So the Chennai Corporation guys got that idea from B'lore.
The stupid guys have recently started putting huge rocks to cover craters in the road with atleast half (12" in one case) of it protruding above the road surface. You go over it by mistake and the car's underbelly is screwed bigtime.

Today I saw a black Mercedes SLK. The hard top was on. It looked like a pretty new car. The car was being driven slowly over a speed hump.

Bit pricey although is was an S - saw it on St Marks road. I knew of one in hyderabad going for around 34l, 4 years ago.

I was as usual in the Bangalore Club and saw it. Half the people thought it was a Maybach - nope, here's Bangalore's first New S - class - S500, fully loaded - amazing presence - sorry -my sony camera sucks

Here's another...not as exptic as some of the machinery here, but pretty good nonetheless.

Saw a silver Mitsubishi 3000 GTO (pop up lights and all!) on Saturday at Marathalli. Poor car was crawling in bumper to bumper traffic and must be cursing its owner!

Does it have "Mr Bond's" number on it ?

One thing about Boxters, if not maintained well, they are pretty troublesome and access to critical components is horrendous. 911's are more durable apparently
