Default Trivandrum gets its first BMW 5 Gran Turismo.

Today got a text from jk asking me "Now who bought the grand thing, the Bmw thing,White"

I replied that I have no clue and only 5GT's i was aware was the one expected by Emkey group and the one in the dealership and asked him to snap some pics. Sadly, he went past the place(Ccd, Kowdiar) already. Only info he got was our cousin(mine and jk's) too was there with his X5 parked near the GT. I lost my cousins number so jk send me the the contact, tried calling and the call just wont get connected. Huh !

I just didn't want to let it go and decided to go to ccd and see it for live, when I was on my way, and reached half-way when I saw my cousin coming the opposite way in the X5 and just went past waving at me, Darn ! I think I lost it. Anyways, I just decided to try my luck and went there. Obviously, It wasn't there and I took a frappe and decided to head back home, look my bike and when I was about to turn into golf-links I saw a bright light coming from Kowdiar jn. "It was the GT". The guy just floored it all the way to vellayambalam jn. I too throttled hard to keep up with him, Then he took a U turn and I overtook him and went to ccd hoping that he will stop there. This 'lovable' guy again ripped the hell out of the car and flew past ccd. Thank god, I had my phone cam ready, I got a blurred pic(#1). Feeling frustrated, I decide I 'want' to click it, I took my bike and caught up with him past Ambrossia(Kowdiar), Just when I was to click again,*tadaa* my dad is calling. I just ended the call determined to take a snap at whatever cost and again catches with him nr. All Spice. Took a snap(#2) and on the sight of some good tarmac, he started to floor again. Within a 150 meters distance, he flicked the right indicator and went into a private road(guys from trivandrum must have guessed the garage/owner. Yes, it gives company to the builders Vermilion Red X5).

Note - No, I don't consider the 5GT as 'such' an exotic spotting to Hot Pursue it and write it all down as an experience. But yes, If I determine in my mind to do something, I'll kill or die to pull it off Cheers !

If you are talking about the builder who has the black Range Rover, his 730Ld's regn no: is AS 5511. I doubt whether there's another white 7 series in TVM that too in AJ series.

Yes, the builder's 7 is AS series and is the 'first' E66 7er in the district. So, no chance of one in AJ regn. Also, it is the only one in White.

Spotted a TN regn. Silver ML320cdi day before yesterday at Kesavadasapuram.

Also spotted Financier/Hotelier's Silver A8.

Nice find, more over nice effort to click it. The first 5GT was sold to a Builder & Emkey Group has not bought it yet inspite of a romour!

I too saw this car on sunday inside jawahar nagar. At first, It was backing up as it took a wrong turn and from the rear profile i thought it was 'just' a 7.. but then i really noticed it and i tried to take a snap. As i clicked, tyres screeched it i i got was a blur of alpine white!!

Seems the guy was driving it flat out. anyways, great catch. and great job keeping up

Ok,Its confirmed. It is the white CFS with reg **777. The interiors are velvet red and looks like its straight out of a VIP room in an Amsterdam club.

I hope somebody gets to post the interior pix on TBHP. It is some sight!!!!

A friend called me up and said that a smashed red Hummer with Dxb plates was lying by the side of the NH near Payyoli. The car was involved in a pretty big collision with an Innova. He couldn't get any more details as it was getting dark and he was in a hurry.

I'm assuming it's the same H2 that was in the local papers a few weeks ago, albeit for the wrong reasons. The one that had been parked over the kerb on beach road in Calicut. Has anyone seen the crashed Hummer?
