Finally!! Was waiting for someone to do this rather than get the outdated models (but a Ferrari is still a Ferrari I guess). Is it the Red R8/White Porsche guy getting it?

Yes, same guy.

He has been contemplating for a while with some used 458s and eventually decided to take the plunge. Good man

Yep, first in Kerala. But not the first Mallu owned 458 in the country

Yes, coupe.

Ok, pardon my ignorance but I am not sure who that is. Is it the Bangalore red one or somewhere else?

Close enough. It's the Nero Daytona (Black) from Bangalore.

He replaced his Grigio Silverstone (Grey) F430 Spyder with the 458 a few months back.

Spotted BMW M5 at Pete's in the evening. I'm sure many of you know to whom it belongs.

Same doubt here. I too am not sure about an M5 in the state, either E60 or F10.

There are quite a lot of normal 5ers with M-kit though, the most famous being the BMW dealer's car and one of the matte red wrapped cars.

Oh. I thought there is/was a M5 here. Didnt the Thrissur doc have one? It had M badging and bodykits.

Well, i remember seeing a dark blue M3 in trivandrum in the mid 90s. It belonged to a doc who moved to Trivandrum. I remember taking a photo of it. Coincidentally there was a review of the M3 couple of days prior to that on top gear.

His car is an E60 530d Highline with M-kit and rims. To add to your confusion, he recently got new KW coil-overs which make the car sit even lower like an M5

He is a friend and fellow-Bhpian, he is not a doctor, but an engineer at Rolls Royce (he was in the team that developed the Ghost). I maintain, his car is my most favorite //M-car in the country

You said it dude. The car was too low and looked just like the M5. Wish it was black.
