Miss miss miss!

Anyway he'll reach Calicut only by Saturday as he is stopping in Pune & couple of other places on his way. So detailed photos & explanation after Saturday.

Here is couple of photos he send me to take my opinion before the deal happened. Since he bought the car I post it here, there was another 650Ci in consideration which was missed!

Request all to watch Fly Wheel this week, its an exciting episode with Phantom! See the trailer on the above link!
Wow ! Kerala is surely on a Roll You really did miss the chance to have fun bro !

IIRC, this is the 3rd 650i in KL right ?

Great color and love the Saddle Brown interiors.

Can't wait for detailed snaps.

Yep ,its the U.S version.They had this stupid rule of individual lights or something like that where you can't put a lens civer over the lights or give it an aerodynamic design. Coming to the w116,its in a bad shape but not that bad,can be easily restored to it's former glory.
The corolla looks excellent.Good to know the old jap exports are taken care of(though lots are rusting away)

Its nice to see another 650i coming to Kerala. But what happened to the other 2 6series' in Kerala? The blue one was spotted once and no spottings reported about the white one!!

Blue 650i ? I thought it was black.

And about the white, looks like he is too busy with his Porsche Carrera Cabriolet (Red)

The white 650i comes out mostly at night! Otherwise he uses Cayenne on regular run & Carrera other wise. He sold his S350.

The first one - monaco blue - the guy is mostly in Gulf, hence not spotting. Even his S-class is very rarely seen. Expecting to see both soon in Calicut as their new project is about to launch!

IMO the 6-er is the only seriously good looking beemer still remaining.
Nice catch Hani! The interiors look good too, but the rims could have been way better. You said he's a friend to you, so please ask him to get the beauty a new pair of stilettos

@preetam,scorcher,unknownsatan: I agree. That 6-er could really do with some proper shoes. How about BBS or the M wheels??
