Hi Guys!
I spotted the new BMW 5 Series at Pattom, Trivandrum today!! It was finished in black. It is probably the first one here in Trivandrum.

The car certainly looks a lot bigger than the outgoing model.
Sorry I couldn't get any pictures as I was driving.

Anyway Trivandrum based BHPians please be on a lookout for this beauty!!

Nice pics anif, the X6 seems to be a new addition, I never came across this one.

Saw a similar looking E250 parked near Amset's 520d at Nalanchira showroom.

Spotted a brand new BMW X6 yesterday night after the TBHP Meet.
The acceleration was insane so was his driving. Hopefully the pics will be uploaded by fellow tbhpians.

The snowflake rims seem to be extremely popular with X6 owners.

I used to find the X6 (and the 5 series GT) unsettling. As in, I never really knew if I liked it or not. In some angles they looked great and bad in others. This Black X6 (with those rims) look awesome! Now Im leaning more towards 'I like it'.

Can't just place this toyota
it looks a bit Isuzu-ish, koreanish to me. Sure it's a toyota?

Is this the Toyota Kijang by any chance? It strongly resembles to a Isuzu though.

Guyz, got it.
It's the philipine market Toyota Revo. Closely related to hilux and in styling to the kijang.
It's the original asian market UV predecessor of the likes of the qualis and tavera.

Jose.
The exhausts tell me that its the mighty 5.L V8 behemoth. If so, this has to be the FIRST X6 X-Drive 50(Petrol) in Kerala. Neat find dude.

- I could be wrong. The rectangular exhausts are standard in the petrol but are available in diesel(X-Drive 30d) as an option, but no one bothers to tick the box just for a different exhaust pipe and moreover this guy decided to stick with the base alloys too. Hence the guess.

Think so. This had some insane acceleration. We managed to catch him up after sometime thanks to the busy traffic.

Hot news! Calicut to get the first Jaguar XJ in the state within a month! It's silver + black interior with carbon fibre trim. Its top of the range V8 varient.

Saw Khaja Group's new 5-Series GT at Taj today during a function. Met the owner & said he recently bought it.

Latest addition, new Merc Sprinter with customised interior & exterior, imported by a reputed Jweller Group.

Carnet Bentley CFS spotted at their house by my friend & has permission to post it here.

Range Rover Sport owned by a textile group.

A business group in Calicut ordered 7 Mercs which include a S350 CDI, 2-GL350 CDI, a ML350 CDI, an E350 CDI & 2-E250 CDI.

Another business house bought a new 730Ld, replaced their X5 which was total lost in an accident.

A fellow builder booked a new RR Sport & my electrical supplier bought a X5 3.0d

The Kajahs car has the tiger claw scratch mark , I just like it.

The sprinter rocks , I think the Kajahs still posses the Sprinter.

Spotted Mr. Lulus new 7 series at Hotel ashoka inn late in the night at thrissur today
