But its really hard to find out when such auctions are happening.
Some guys do get really lucky ! i guess potential buyers with a thick wallet would hesitate to buy a beauty which has been sleepin for over 3 yrs.hehe! But it could also be one of the biggest bargains of your life.

Yup, I've seen it from Blore...black colour...

Here is the 730Ld in Calicut. Foto took during the wedding of his daughter, hence there is flower on the car...





Super star Mammootty bought a new 5-series from Chennai...

I was told that BMW has got a very good response..one more X5 to Clt..but all cars will start seeing only by Jan `08...

I had attended this mrrg at KTC ground near Taj Hotel!!!....she was my cousin's friend & I accompanied her...I was really shocked to see a range of imported cars...

The biggest shock was to see a yellow Hummer H3, with crome plated bigger alloys & it was left hand dive and Dubai no: plate

Then on the entrance I saw the same 7-series, and the driver was very nurves as some body scratched on it on the left front door.

Also saw 2- new S-classes (both S320 cdi), a Porsche Cayenne S, a BMW 5-series (earlier model, HR regn), 3 - earlier S-classes, lot of E-classes & Land Cruisers, a new Montero, etc...I was really surprised to such a big number of expensives cars in Calicut, has the city grown that much
