Simple.
BMW 3 series - 3 crores
BMW 7 series - 7 crores

BMW X5 - 7 x 5 = 35 crores

BMW Z series - price is not mentioned. You can add as much zeroes as you wish. Hence Z.

(seriously put) some people are born lucky. A chap has no idea what a paddle shift is and yet he is driving a "feyrari".....

For some reason this reminds me of the Ferrari Incident in the Mid Day.

Did any one see footage of the Porsche launch in Mumbai where all celebs were invited. The reporter asked Malaika Arora " What do think of the 911 Carrera?"

Her reply " Oh I love the Porsche its my dream car . It looks so much like the Sonata and I drive a Sonata so..thats how close I get to one"

These supermodels live up so well to their " Beauty, no brains" theory, it's difficult not to stereotype them.

Didnt she marry someone from the Salmaan Khan family? Can you expect her to appreciate the finer things in life after that???

Sonata like a Porsche! Somebody give er a job as a pit babe...at least she'll learn something.

Exclamation

why just the programmes which cover cars and motorsports events , its hilarious when u hear the kind of titles they give to breaking news , its like u are watching a "C "grade bhoj puri film (not that i have seen one , but have heard that they can be really low class , no offence to any one ). I guess these repoters are taking coaching from some one like DADA KONDKE who i have heard had his film titles like "ANDHERI RAAT ME DIA TREA HATH MAE "

Seriously they should do atleast some ground work before they attempt a story , and the editors of these programmes should edit some of the stupid stuff what these reporters come up with .

TV these days has gone to the dumps ...

GOD HELP US ....

I wouldn't put it down as having no brains. Just that she is not passionate about cars. She has a Sonata, that shows for her cars are a means to go from point A to B for her. I guess the company doing the launch wanted a hot babe with the hot Porsches and invited her with a bunch of non-car celebs. I don't get it. A Porsche doesn't need celebs to promote it. The car is the star. If they want to invite these celebs at least brief them on the company profile. Doesn't make sense to me. These celebs know nothing and get invited for all the hot car launches and get paid to smile and talk silly.

Well said, man!
Shah Rukh raving about the Santro - understandable. Amitabh raving a about the Versa - understandable.
But, don't even try to talk about a Porsche and even if you want to, go and learn something about the car first.
The legend of the 911 is more than 40 years old and just too big for any of these current Bollywood personalities to even come close to. It speaks for itself. In this case, it's the car that can make any human a star. Not the other way round.
As far as Mallaika Arora - Khan is concerned, all I can say is, "if a person is flush with funds and still spends on a car like a Sonata, we can understand what he / she feels or knows about cars."

most people bought old Sonata just for its looks
besides doesn't everyone has their own choices?
