Thats one of the best machines in Bombay - An original and pristine BMW M5. 8 Cylinders, 8 throttle bodies, 400 horsepower = A Killer combination.

THanks V12, saved it to my hd.

P.S. Ajmat, Thats Salman Khans M5

Hi guys,
Found a pic of another similar M5 om my hard disk. I guess this was a normal 540i with M kit [wheels + front/rear skirt]. The rear had a 520i logo along with the M5 logo below it. Also it had a single exhaust on only on one side [single pipe].

ya sratos.. even i dont like those chrome bordered lights. seen them on some S Classes too [and also E's and C's]. They really spoil the look and make the car look couple of lakhs cheap.

Yeah... looks real bad if the chrome lining is not places tastefully.... look at a W123 for the perfect use of chrome (around the windows etc)

Speaking of seeing this chrome border around taillights on some Sclasses as well......yup.. i just saw the dark greyish silver "S55AMG" yesterday and it had the same thing!!

Seen the car at Yari Road. Parked right in front of a Prado. Was looking out for the R1 too, but sadly it wasnt there.
