Here is what it looks like from the front



And here is what it looks like from the rear!





Here is ze engine!





And here is ze revolutionary Carbonfibre roof!



Here is what the interior looks like

Here is the view you'll get from the driver's seat


And here is the Centre Console


This is the main screen which you'll control with the i-Drive controller (pic below)




Now when you insert the car key/fob into its slot (on the steering column!), you'll need to press this button to Start/Stop the engine!



These two dials will tell you the speed you're doing & also tell you what RPM you're doing it at! Also there are the Fuel & Temperature gauges!


Here is the dial you use to turn on/off the lights on the car!



And here is the gearlever & as you can see it has six-forward gears & one reverse!


So all you've to do now is, insert the key into its slot, push the Engine start button, put the car in gear & you're ready to go!

Remember some things will be slightly different as the car you'll be driving will be a LHD & also you might not get the manual!

Happy Driving!

Actually Ajit, it busted the belt & broke the pulley!! And a few more things happened too but unfortunately those can't be mentioned here! Let's just say I ended up doing some Pooja!

I guess the previlaged owner of the white 2008 M3 belonging to this very same forum should give this gentleman some tips .
