E46 M3 is the actor's car as pointed out by Naveen. I'm referring to a white E92 M3.

Saw the Flying Spur, parked in front of its owner's jewellery showroom in Trivandrum. The new Prado was spotted at Changanacherry.

Is that M3 a new addition to the state? Don't recall seeing it here before.

I thought the same too. Have never seen it before. However I understand that its been here and belongs to an actor, based on the replies to the post I had made last week in this thread itself.

That's E36 and does not belong to the actor. He's got the E46 M3.

Oops, my bad. Thanks for pointing it out, PapaBravo and naveen.raju

So, is this M3 a new addition to the state or just temporarily here? Also, seems like there is a significant number of M3s in Kerala, does anyone know how many exactly?

Here is a screenshot of the MVD site stating the number BL-7 is of an Audi.
Spotted this very same Cayenne with a different, but similar registration yesterday at EKM, now its with BK-7, being driven by a lady, making a not so bad traffic block in the service road, in front of Holiday Inn.

With the 33% CBU taxes, Porsche is going to have a very tough time in Kerala. Similarly, Range Rovers, Jaguar XJ, Audi A8 and the Land Cruiser twins are also going to find not many takers from now on. But the biggest threat would be to Volvo, which is a totally CBU brand, but operating in a segment with much lower price elasticity than Porsche.

Taxes were always increasing and so were the count of luxury cars in our place. I dont think the increase in tax would bring down the sale of JLR or Porsche. Volvos were never selling in big numbers so they dont need to worry!

There are 2 MH reg BMW coupes in cochin. One is the actors E46 M3, and the second is the black E36 coupe. It is Not an M3, but a smaller engined car, with an M badge. I think its a a recent entry to the state.
