Pictured over here. That carwale pic looks as though it was taken when new. Stock wheels on that one. Metric tyres so wheels would have to be switched

Thank you Ajmat for searching my old post and pin pointing it here. When I saw that old Jaguar at Mustang motors it was running on stock wire wheels and it came for a service there. I just wonder what happened to the stock rims ?

Every Saturday I have a religeous class in the early morning, I normally won't miss it unless I'm out of station. Today during the class I got a call from my friend (who bought the 650i), I cancelled the call & sms him. Just after the class when I was calling him, I saw a black beauty from through the window of mosque. By the time he picked the call he passed away & I told him 'So u reached?' he asked wer r u? Then he stopped his new black-beauty next to the mosque.

So the 650i reached Calicut today morning by 7am. I met him & his wife was along with him, they were coming after a short drive. We talked for a while & planned to meet at evening as he look very sleepy after a night out drive. Here is couple of snaps of the same I took before he leave.

Nice photo, Hani. I've always thought the 6 is one of BMW's better designs. Slightly conservative, but slap on a body kit and some nice alloys and she'll be drop dead gorgeous (not implying that she's not beautiful or anything). Unfortunately, the 6 is already a low car and Kerala's roads don't take kindly to imports with kits.

She looks gorgeous, love the color.

Just worry how your friend is gonna manage the 6 on Kerala roads , at least on the less engineered stupid humbs, while the ground clearence is very less. (Baleno, civic and jetta users will know how to manage it much better)

It seems Kerala is really on top gear with all these exotics. I feel to visit my mother town at the earliest!

Wow ! What a way to start a day Bro. Nice pics. The car looks lovely.

- By the amount of Break-pad Dust accumulated on the rims, we can guess the fun he had with the 6er all the way

- The Signature BMW thing on the roof is missing ?
