The black bangled BMW 530i spotted outside Urban Tadka : Sorry for the pic quality. Pic was too dark. Had to "Equalize" it in Pshop.

hey guys,
good pics of the E60 5 series.. recently a lot of the 5 series esp 530's are being sold.. and now u will get to see mostly 530d's with crdi engines.. they are awesome.. wont even come to know the engine is running.. with huge torque.. will let u know the tech details later.. but to think of it.. the same engines go in the Range Rover 3 ltr diesels and the BMW 730d's!! the 3 series wont be seen so soon now.. the E46 will be replaced by the E90 but it wont be seen soon as it falls below the 40,000 euro's bracket and will need homologation by ARAi.. but expect to see more of the new 5 series and the 7 including a few Range Rovers.. and also the second RR phantom is expected very soon in Mumbai.. will keep u posted!!
Keep Revving!

i guess for homologation purposes. Must have got it before the $40000 import rule came in. Not sure though.
