The 911 looks so sweet. But I didn't like that black roof. It would have looked much better in the coupe form.

Love the pics han ! Look at the way people ogle at the car. It is head turner for sure ! Is the car DL registered ? A friend of mine told me spotting a DL regd silver sports car. He is not sure of the model. The interiors badly need some good mods, as it is a convertible it is easy to get the interiors dusty and ruined.

Great car nonetheless. So when are the 2 Carreras meeting ? Can't wait to see both in action.

Only one is Calicut. Another one in Ekm which is a best buddy of this carrera owner. He got the first Carrera Cabrio(Red) and later this followed. To top that, both garages are so resembling.

Common in both Garages -
W221 S - 350(ekm), 320cdi(clt)
BMW 5 - 525d(ekm), 530d and 523i(clt)
Cayenne - Black(ekm), White(clt)
Carrera Cabrio - Red(ekm), Silver(clt)

Nice snaps, Hani. The Carrera was brought to our dealership by the owner a few days ago. Our staffs camera phones were going off like crazy around it. Lol!

The Carrera sounds like a proper porsche should, but the owner is talking about sourcing a Gemballa exhaust unit for it, then it'll sound like nothing else on Calicut's roads.

- It is bought second hand from Bangalore.
- There are rules to regulate the import of used cars to India. I don't think it is an easy procedure.
- Please post in model names correctly. It is 911.

Mother of Dixie ! Gemballa Exhausts. Great ! Mr.AT has some taste, would be nice to hear he getting new rims and get an interior overhaul.

Are you sure it is the same X6 ? because i thought they upgraded to the 20' Y spokes from this pathetic rims.
Yes it's trivandrum club where X6 was present.I also wish for better alloys,like the snow flake one.

i only saw the white X6 in a flash as it was flying past me in opposite direction,just made a guess to see if its true as i don't remember about any other white X6 discussed in this thread

Actor Prithviraj's red Z4 has been delivered to him at cochin ,just saw on some e-show in TV featuring the actor ,red Z4 was seen on background.

has any one spotted the car at cochin?

X6 - Yes, that is the same X6. I later noticed the rear rims are 'Y' spoke and the front ones standard. Maybe some damage to the rim or tire.

Prithvi's Z4 - Great news ! He is the only young blood who has really launched into the Superstar orbit. And, it really shows. Any clue as of where the car is registered as trivandrum is just going through his signature number series. I wish he had blocked it.

The yellow Beetle referred has been delivered and I guess it is the second yellow beetle in cochin.

Heard a new XF is coming to Malabar region.

Here is the photo of Pritviraj's Z4 which he took delivery y'day. Snapped it just after a while after the delivery, he had a small drive & left the car at BMW to film the glass. Later at evening he took the delivery & dashed away! He said he want to take it to Thirnelveli-Madurai Road to explore its power. I was told that he is also interested in new 7, but within 4-6 months!

Great find han ! Love the car, this deserves a standing ovation.

I'm floored with the choice of color. Blue is a very obvious and common color for BMW's. Need some ba**s to think out of the box.

I had doubts when i was said that he is going for a red one as Crimson Red is a color which is not on offer in India. Looks like this one would be an uber-exclusive car.

#1 - No Red in Z4 spec sheet by BMW India.
#2 - UK spec sheet with Crimson Red.
