Guys these are not Hamann wheels. These are fake AC Schnitzer wheels sourced from China/Taiwan. Have seen it on the above mentioned Skoda's & the Silver C-Class too.

And the golden Skoda is yukkkk... Mods we seriously need a puking smiley!

Jesal - Jay is right it's not an M5 but is an ordinary 5-series. Here are a couple of clues why:

1. Even though your picture is pretty blurry I can spot that it does not have gills on the front fender which come only on the M5.

2. It only has two exhausts at the back unlike the quad-setup of the M5's.

To help differentiate between the M5 & ordinary 5-series read this excellent topic by Gordon:

Here's another one me & Elf saw while cruising (or shall I say snailing!) across Mumbai near Pali Hill (I think). If I had known the chap I would asked to him to first replace the tail-lights before making his Zen into a suedo-SUV!!

I've seen a similar swift here. He's attached the spare on the boot. But you will notice there is a very good reason the spare is too big to fit into the boot.

The swift i saw had 17" wheels and i think 225 tyres and there was no way that would go into the boot hence this brilliant idea.

These wheels are sold in india by both Hijon # H282, and SM, SM being cheaper sells more.

Default Modded Fiat ??

Though I feel this looks pretty good in a whacko way, it looks very very like our own Padmini (it's actually not one). However if someone would do it up like this, except for visibility problem due to engine sticking out, it should be cool as hell.

That behemoth of a car looks like it's based on the old-school Minis.

I kinda like the rear of this 118NE, but the front and the interiors are horrendous!
