Saw two (different) S65 Mercs today... too bad I'd forgotten me phone at home.

Nice spots!

Anyone know why the single blue light is lit on the Phantom? Is it a parking light like you get on Mercs?

If it is, it's parked on the wrong side of the road. And DAMN that gallardo looks sexy in black!

True... but that light is definitely on. I don't think it's a reflection or anything. I'm sure someone knows what that light is for. :blink:

It's a parking light. They're normally operated by the turn-signal switch on the steering column. If you used the turn-signal to indicate you're going to park and subsequently forgot to turn it off, the parking light at that side of the car will turn on as soon as you switch off the ignition. I think that is also how it went in that case.

^ I reckon it's a reflection - there's blue light being reflected off the main headlight too.

The blue light's probably a reflection of white/yellow lights bouncing off the phantom's xenon/HID lights (look at the ball-ish shape). Xenon/HID lights are blue-ish colored.
Example is our BMW's xenon reflecting white light as blue light.

Lol. Blue light on a RR phantom can arouse so much interest! xP

I took these with my other phone with a poor camera, anyways.

Today on my way home from the supermarket I saw this.

^You live in Britain? And is it a coincidence that they're photographed alongside a similar grey freelander? Lol.

^ Why is it weird? He says he snapped them at the same location a few months apart... the owner of the Freelander likely lives there?

That's ice which it's parked on. Looks kinda wicked, M3 with winter tyres. That miserable phone pic cannot do real justice to it, but that had really, really nice rims. Those aren't the standard ones. They had BMW M-badges on them so they could be somekind of option.
