Sheesh! Why would someone crib so much about a new car, in fact the display car will be more pampered example than the one stored in the yard. Considering the fact that the new Z4 owner is someone who hates the brand as a whole. Again, If I had the dough

He was talking about the Blue M3 buddy and not the LC His bad he failed to quote that post.

Anyways, I came to know that you guys got the LC via a friend who happens to live next to you. Awesome machine there. Saw the OTR pics, mind blowing it was. Congrats!

That is something I never knew. Whats the point in spending this much of money on a roadster if he hates the brand?

Regarding the car being pampered. hmmm I'll just say, the owner took the right decision

Guys, what say on this shade? This one got offloaded from the truck today.

Black Z4 is a relief to see after a few white ones now. Why do majority of BMW, Audi and Merc customers opt for white?

@R S Blue- You post a lot of BMWs, in fact i don't remember you posting anything other than a BMW. Do you work at Platino Classic?

The info was from a mutual friend, according to him, he hates the brand and got the car for his younger brother who loves it.

Naice! This is it, The BMW Z4 is givin' it to the Merc SLK350 right, left and center. I couldn't even think of the last time I saw a brand new SLK. So many Z4s on Kerala roads yet dude?

White multiplies the presence and as far as mallus are concerned, nothing comes close to the feeling of "having more than what he paid for"

Yep, RS Blue does work for PC.

Just came across this post while scrolling back old posts. Two of my friends in Tvm had booked GLs and one got of them got delivery, it is white (this happens to be the second white GL of Trivandrum but the first one is still on Temp regn.). Not sure of the status of the second car

I suggest you better have a look at the previous pages of this thread and I am sure you will definitely find pictures posted by me that are non BMW.(Read Hummer, Jag, Navigator and so on)

Yes, as Scorcher said, I work at PC.

BTW, guys heard that some big shots from the Dubai Royal Family has come down for the inauguration of the Vallarpadom Container Terminal. Wonder what cars would they be using here. Are there any chances that they would have brought down their own rides on CARNET for moving around in here?

Not to sound pessimist, but if they are not that big-shot the most we can hope is a Toyota Innova

Spotted the same at Wayanad, Bathery. Man.. this car was huuggee, and even a layman could guess its price tag. Amazing road presence.

I believe it belongs to a businessman in Wayanad. AFAIK, he owns the white Cayenne (PY reg). Not sure about the Carrera though.
