  1. Spotted this Vehicle Today.

  2. Spotted this Vehicle Today.

    thats an old Toyota land cruiser 70 series model of 1980s vintage. I second the thought of Bornfree - he must be a globetrotter. Mr. Spock2011-03-23 17:32:28
  3. Nope.It has a decent amount of power for city but FE is between 11 - 12 km/l which is low.the UV-A might be replaced in a year or two so avoid this car and also repair and servicing are on higher side.
  4. suggest quality car under 6 lacs

    What I would suggest is you to completely avoid Hyundai i20 at all cost due to this steering rattling issue which is yet to be resolved.
  5. Happy Holi to all

    May this festival of colour bring new vivid colours to our life.Happy Holi to all and play safe only with natural colours
  6. Japan!!

    My grandfather narrated the whole events of Hiroshima and its aftermath' date=' it was an eye opener for me. Yes Sir you are correct in this respect but there is other view in korea and China which I feel better left in pages of History as it is unwise to discuss at this juncture. + 1 in this hour and every hour let us pray that it all comes to an end and even our enemies never face such a thing.
  7. The Gadgets and Gizmos thread!

  11. Porsches going lighter!

    Porsche will launch a cascade of new models over the next two years. The new 911, codenamed 991, is on a new platform with a lot of aluminum that will be shared with the Boxster/Cayman family. Due to difficulty and time consuming nature to build both platforms( old and new) together , the production unit wants to get rid of old models as soon as possible. As expected the Performance will increase in new Turbo Porsche 911 due to 100 pound weight loss. A wider front track and longer wheelbase, is expected. Porsche will build the new Boxster and Cayman at the Karmann plant and at Zuffenhausen and follow the 991 launch in very quick succession. Expect the Boxster to be at the Geneva show in 2012. Evolution remains the Porsche way. The new Boxster looks much like the current one. Width is basically unchanged to keep weight in check. An aluminum bodyshell should save about 50 pounds. Power will rise, with the Boxster S taking the engine from the run-out Boxster Spyder, a 3.4-liter 320-horsepower unit, with seven-speed PDK or a seven-speed manual derived from the PDK box. The base car will use a 2.7-liter engine downsized from the 2.9 and add the direct-injection system from other Porsches to find a handful more ponies than the current 255. Efficiency measures such as start-stop and the lighter weight will improve real-world fuel efficiency by about 15 percent. The roomier cabin uses higher-quality switchgear derived from the Panamera and 2011 Cayenne. Senior management of Porsche hints a four-cylinder engine being developed for the baby Porsche roadster that will be related to the VW roadster and Audi R4. The four also will go into the Boxster, though not at launch. The second-generation Boxster was a modified version of the first. This one has an all-new platform, and sources say the body will be a lot more rigid, to the benefit of handling. A wider front track will add grip, and the longer wheelbase should improve the ride and stability. ( source - Motor Trend)
  12. Japan!!

    Completely agree with sgiitk sir on this issue.The problem is that all the news is censored by Japanese Govt. regarding this crisis leading to intense speculation, so truth or real problem is hidden.

    Exactly this is what I meant.It could be a Sumo with wheels from Xylo as the profile is distinctive of Sumo.
  14. My M&M 550 XD 4X4 Ex-Army Beast

    @mikee-Congrats, it looks fabulous and the price is good considering that work to be done is negligible.I have one piece of advice either replace the front seats or install head restraints for front seats for protection against whiplash injury.

    I don't know what this fuss about xylo's alloy wheels is about.Can't Sumo have similar alloy wheels or maybe just to disguise.It is an armored vehicle and M&M will not use Xylo platform for military armored vehicles when it has already developed marksman and axe. Mr. Spock2011-03-16 12:32:56
