For Gurgaon : Registration + Tax is approx. INR 66k; Insurance 75k, Secure 55k. BSI could be anything between INR 1.6 - 3L p.a. (depending on the year/kms combo you pick). Anyway, BSI is an absolute must to ensure peace of mind!
BSI costs up to 3 lakh per annum? WOW. Had no idea. That's really expensive.

Congratulations! Beautiful car.
That keychain looks very similar to the Merc keychains.
Drive safe. BTW, if you don't mind, where in Mumbai are you put up?

Nope. BSI is a one-time upfront 3L for the 5-year / 100,000 km comprehensive coverage. Secure OTOH is 55k per annum over and above your insurance premium.

Oops.. my bad! BSI is of course onetime (the first year or whenever you pick BSI - before the warranty ends AFAIK)

Thanks for pointing that out

Looks neat- Congrats once again !

Just noticed your driver side mat is coming up on the accelerator, can be dangerous,make sure you cut it to size.

This interior color is not the least to maintain, although it's too early to be cautious make sure you religiously send her every 6 months to Rhyme & Rhythm in Colaba for an interior clean up if you are looking to keep the car for long.

Yeah that keeps happening, very annoying. Have to fix it.

It's starting to become a pain already. I'll be sending the car to Sachin regularly, yes.

Yeah. Thought as much, the 5 was quite....swift !! As usual, I only know it was you because of the plates. We'll meet up sometime instead of just passing by all the time, lets see.

That is the best way to notice any of Sahil's cars, especially the 5s.

Congratulations on the great buy!
Loved the way you penned down your thought-process before purchasing the car & couldn't agree more that the decision made sense in more ways than many!!
Really liked the interior pics & the alloys look way more eye-catching than the ones on the Highline.
Drive safe
