The Interlagos Blue E93 BMW M3 convertible which crashed at Athirapally during the Super Sunday is recuperating to her former glory and will soon be delivered back to the owner.

New BMW in my town (Mavelikkara). Not sure if someone already posted it on this thread. The owner apparently was interviewed on some TV channel about this car.

The M3 sticker (and lack of any other badge on the car) intrigued me and since I have zilch idea about high-end cars, I checked with some experts on the forum about this car and as per them the M3 sticker is just that - a sticker, while the car is actually a 330d Cabrio. Any idea what it costs on-road in Kerala ?

Yes, that's Kerala's first 330d Convertible. The price is approx 75lacs OTR.

The M3 badge can still be forgiven, but the stickers on the sides with the owner's name is pushing it a bit too much for me.

EDIT: Just noted his website on the rear glass too

^ The owner is a photographer, owns a studio or something and that 330d is used as a wedding car (with its roof down).

Spotted DN's Ferrari yesterday night. I should say that he drove really well.

I bet he will be charged around half of the price of a new M3

Heard that the total repair charges will be around 32 Lakhs and that will be covered under insurance.

He should be lucky if Insurance company pays up this amount. They would have worked out by now that the car was being driven for an event (I don't know if they would construe this to be a competitive drive) and in most likelihood they would find out a reason for not paying up.

A Photographer ? ? Must be a really good one, to afford a 75 Lac car.
