Its pretty expensive in comparison to the earlier one I think, cuz the base for the earlier one was a less than 70, anyhow, its still a fantastic machine..and hope to see one in india soon

Dipen, your complaint is valid but a bit too far fetched. First up, how many people know BMW's M division in India? Then can they distinguish between a normal 5 series and a BMW M5? Then how many of them carry a camera at all times (mobile phones included)? Then how many of them are net savvy? Ask these questions and then you'll realise the no. of pics on the car. The fact that even one of them is up there is an achievement (all credit to V12 for that).

Think!

Oh, to add to that even people who know the BMW M5 and have seen it several times in pics and can distinguish it fail to point out several distinguishing features. For instance, the E39 BMW 5 series during its last 2 years of production came out with a revised bumper similar to the M5, but different since it had a single horizontal bar running across its length, unlike the M5's clean air dam.

Then people see M5 badges at the rear and side, see the same rear bumper and same alloys and think "aah its an M5." Hello, look at the M mirrors, are they there? No. So it isn't an M5.

Sorry to say, even the pros make mistakes.

V12 surely deserves the credit for that lone one pic.
