I had to lean over and zoom my phone cam to get the third last shot. Physical visit if you can, you can see them more clearly.

Looking at the wheel and the fender, its seems to be a e34 or a e32, but definitely not an e30.

Apparently the place that sidindica has photographed was a car repair garage (dont know if i should post the name here ) that was shut down a few years back and is the subject of a court case now. The premises are sealed.

The white bimmer is an E34. The spoiler on the 944 looks a bit SAAB no?

No I know it was a 944 design feature. But with those tail lamps the rear suddenly bore a striking resemblance to SAAB 900 Turbos of that era.

Found these beauties rotting away to dust at a warehouse in Uran. As per warehouse people these cars are lying here from last 10-15 years. Most are LHD (Even a Tata Siera Turbo).
I especially liked the trolley behind Range Rover.

Some great cars!
Any idea how Team BHP could be put on the "Notice" List when these cars go on the market?

Amazing find Sonu..
How come so many of these cars have foreign registration numbers ?
Could it be some customs confiscated haul ??

Thats some horrifying pics there. Some nice rides there, why didn't custom auction them off. At least some one could have enjoyed.
I hope that the green merc makes it out of there.
