Good advice I think...


"Sir, step AWAY from the vehicle! Step away from the 335..."

Took her for a drive up Gorge Road on the weekend, still smiling at the thought - check out the map below, or check out my story on it from last year: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9139

Gorge Rd is in the Adelaide Hills. Just North East of the city. The area is known as Chain of Ponds

The point isn't to know the names but to see how windy the road is!

The part where the eyes see car is called spotting.

doesn't count if it is your job, spotting a cool car is "special" lol, otherwise half the people on this board would be like, "omg, i spotted a nice bmw in my garage this morning!!"

so no, there is no technicality here, just fact...

but please aem, there is an off topic section for mindless ramblings... how bout we move this convo to there? and keep this thread for real sightings...

About to turn in my street, when I spotted a Pagani Zonda 7.3 litre V12 off Ryde Road in Gladesville, Sydney. Very destinct in a burnt orange colour and from the rear, with the 4 exhaust tips grouped in a chrome circle between the tail lights........caught up to it just so I could listen to that orchestral music eminating from the rear. I felt numb for the rest of the day !

i followed this around the city a little while ago.....Mclaren F1 *woot*



was changing lanes and overtaking others so i could follow it around and take a couple of shots
finally pulled up right next to it, gave the fella and the chick in it a wave and a thumbs up then stuck my head and my arms out to take pics of it shamelessly



too bad the lights changed and he turned off and i had to go straight hahaha oh well

mclarens are rare but a galardo is still fab love those things
when i'm in hk, there's one that parks in our carpark
he treats his car like shit
so and obviously can't park/drive
dings all over those beautiful alloys, revs it and makes it scream like a banshee from cold....hate that guy for treating his car so badly but he can afford it i guess...just get a new one when this one explodes.....

bentley vert, u got some sort of convertible fetish eh girl?
