I wonder if it will turn up in India as the 2009 model?
I doubt BMW would sell an older version in India while the rest of the world gets the newer version? (Unlike Mercedes originally did!)

its a facelift as the title suggests and not a new model. IMO the tail lamps look better than the current one.

IMO we can't blame the manufactures for this. The ARAI's homologation process make this delay. Infact, ARAI needn't test these cars for a long time as it has undergone almost all testes around the world.

One of friend shared his experiance with ARAI while he was working in Mercedes Benz India. MB-Idia had to wait a long time to get the W220 S-class homologated. When they enquired the reason for delay, they found that some ARAI didn't had soem equipment to test such an advance car, so they have ordered it & was waiting for the same.
