Have they already been re-painted once, or is my mind playing tricks on me?

EDIT: Here's the pic (was with Tejas at the time who took it). Can't really tell the colour, but i think its the golden?

The video is shot at the BMW dealership in Pune where the car stood.

The M3 is at Navnit Motors and is being done up.

The car is in the same form she came from the factory and never been tampered with. The golden color rims were an option and if one did not mention the rims they came in the grey black color. The 09 last quarter onward cars if i remember right came with golden wheels as standard.

Nice ride!
Is this car bought from Pune Or was at Pune?
Reason - I saw a F430 23rd Feb night at Koregaon Park, and I guess it is Bavaria Motors. (I dont remember that was a Scuderia or not)

Yeah! First it was in Mumbai, then Pune, and now it is back in Mumbai.
It was at Bavaria Motors when in Pune, because, the Showroom Owner also deals with Used Super-Cars.

For those wondering what color the wheel originally was I have attached a photo of the car on a flat bed and the 'after' pic from its respray.

Once more I congratulate him on the acquisition of his first Fezza.

Also, the M3 is still very much there

This doesn't really tell us what colour the wheels were before (ie originally, years back when the car first came into Bombay).

However, I've thought about it a bit, and I'm fairly sure they were the golden/bronze when i first saw it.

PS - Typical Team-BHP... we are discussing what colour wheels a car had years ago

They were never golden. They were always Gray. Only in 2009 did the golden wheels come as an option. I have pictures of the car right off the assembly line and they were GRAY. And now I have changed it for a more regal look. Here is a proper picture.

Congrats on your acquisition Insideman. Your new car deserves a new thread altogether - with loads of pics and videos - and obviously list of modifications that you have planned for it.

The Golden wheels really suit the car more than the black color. Reminds me of the Ferrari of all bikes - The MV Agusta F4 Tamburini.

in an article that appears in today's, Mumbai Mirror, the cops had to be summoned by some residents of worli sea-face, to complain about the two super cars that were speeding back and forth on the stretch.

One of the cars a ferrari, happens to be the ex- ambani car, that has been recently sold to one of our member's , his name is mentioned as well (JP). The other is a bull, unsure if its a galardo, murci etc.

Apparently, both the cars were driven by their respective drivers.The cops are further investigating the above..
