err..you talkin' about the X1? No big thing. Already saw some on the roads, Its flyin off the dealership and a 7 month wait for a fresh booking! Mallus are in love with Bimmers.

EDIT - Adding one more comment to everyone who liked the number on the X6, I think nothing comes close to a F01 730Ld which just got regd in Cochin, Guess what's the number, KL 7 "BM 7".

The Maradu NH infront of the showroom seems to be renovated. The very road I maxxed out many Germans and Japs (including Immortalz's Civic ). I so can't wait!

Love the rims on the TT, in the third pic.

The cat is the 5.0 V8. The car was brought to the showroom by none other the owner of the hottest wheels in town now. Yes buddy, you guessed it right, the hotelier(R8 owner) himself. I am not sure of the owner, may be he had just borrowed the car from his buddy.

The pic was taken a while back and he had then came in to check the status of the powder coating work done on the wheels of his 650i.

Scorcher, I believe the car you are talking about is the 730ld owned by the BMW dealer himself, right? If so, I guess the car was registered in 2009 itself.I heard that he is planning another 7er and he has already reserved the number 7-BQ-7 for it

Just checked the MVD website and guess what? 7-BP-7 is also a white 7er

@bivin, Scorcher is right, X1 is selling like hot cakes. I heard they are taken away the moment they are offloaded from the trucks.

Here is the photos of the first Audi R8 in the state, since I'm not well so farI couldn't go to see the car. This snap is from a young friend Varun. More detailed photos will follow soon.

Also attach one pic of his Porsche 911 Cabrio, enjoy.

Awesomeness! DN got taste alright. The R8 is in the best attire I could think of, combined withe 650 and poker, makes the most apt super-garage for Kerala roads. Again, congrats DN, you're the man.

sir,
I agree with you totally. writing a registration number like that is making fun of the rules.
Also this particular number was got for just the basic fancy number reservation fees

Oh hannie, You just made my day. Awesome pics. Love the stance of the R8 in the first pic.
Hope you will bless us with a few interior pics also

@Scorcher- I totally agree with you. DN is the superstar when it comes to the import car scene in Kerala.

Why just one!?

That 997 Carrera Cabriolet is absolutely gorgeous, and arguably, the preferred choice over the coupe! I would love to see more pictures of the Carrera, Hani.

The R8 will now set the ball rolling for higher horsepower rides in Kerala.

Nope. The car is very much @ Cochin. Thripunithura, to be precise

I was wondering what number would he be getting for this super car. A single digit number like '8' would look fab.

Couple of more photos of the same R8 clicked by one of his best buddy whos the very listed few to drive his machines! He love the car!

Expect one more R8 soon which will be red with grey side blades & may have one more in the state by year end which will be black. Sorry can't reveal more details!
