This is something not seen on any Avanti's spotted so far in India.

The tail and head lamps on the delivered cars are different from the ones on the showcase cars. I remember reading somewhere that they would eventually be replaced.
On another note, the Avanti already has water leak issues.

Spotted a monte carlo blue M5 near Kundanoor this evening. It was TN registered. Could this be Dulquar's M5 or is it a regular 5 with kit and a paint job ? Could not take a picture since the car passed me in the opposite direction

You will see more such cars registered outside of state now with tax rates in Kerala at 33% for imports costing 15 lacs and more.

Interesting. This is a typical farmer's truck in USA. May be we will also start seeing the ubiquitous Ford F150/250/350 also here soon.

Exactly my thoughts mate! It was the first thing that caught my attention when I saw it from the top floor. Couldn't manage front or interior shots as the car was already leaving by the time I got down. The rear was my biggest gripe about the Avanti, especially after seeing all those pics. In flesh, it does look pretty good though.

Yes, the Austin Yellow BMW M4 has found a home in the Capital. Second M4 to be delivered in the country and THE most heavily loaded car yet.

Shares garage with an XF V8 and a second V8 also will be joining the garage soon

That Avanti shares garage with something that's at the opposite end of the looks spectrum, a Maserati GranTurismo!

Saw this M4 in Abad Plaza. And as Scorcher said.. it's TVM registration. Anyone has an idea who has this?

It's no secret, the 5.0 V8 XF was a dead giveaway. It's the only one here.

It's Parthas

Ah, so that's the Jaguar I used to see in the Parthas shop in TVM. Had no idea it was the V8 though. His brother owns the shop here in Kochi right?

You should've stuck around till it fired up. The NA V8 with Quicksilvers sound glorious.

Also, wasn't the custom matte white paint and the humungous ADV.1s a hint that it's something special?

Yes, cousins. Both the Kochi and Trivandrum cousins will be getting another V8 each also in a month

Just heard news that the hotelier DN has sold his Cayenne and got a red Panamera...not sure if it's petrol or diesel though. Anyone seen it?

The S 500 petrol? Nice. Different alloys than the launch edition I believe? Whose is this?

This is a CKD. Doesn't really qualify to be in supercar & imports section.
