I am Sunil Konjaril, a professional automobile designer who has some serious psychological problems as the only things I think about an live about is cars and bikes. I am very passionate about modifying cars and bikes as I think OEM’s are good but I can still make something better out of them.

What made you buy this particular car/bike?
Opel Vectra 2.2 I personally think which other car in that segment provides me with all that technology which even C classes or 3 classes didn’t have at that time!
