Default Pics: New BMW 5-series and Range Rover

Well here's a bit of a scoop.

I had been to Khar today to a relative's place right next to Raheja Chambers. As soon as i started climbing down the stairs my eye caught a silver SUV thru the window in the aisle. The silhouette screamed to me and said "Range Rover". A lil' further checking later i realised it was a Silver Range Rover. Now, if i am correct, there are only two more RRs in Mumbai, one belonging to Aby Baby and the other to the UK consulate, both white.

So as i finished climbing down the stairs i went towards the gate and tried to look hard into the alley where the cars were parked. The guard nudged me a bit and tried to shoo me off! Instead i politely asked him, if i could have a look. Went ahead and checked it, it seemed to have aftermarket wheels, but couldn't figure out the make. And right behind it stood a black 530i, the bangled one.

If anyone heads that side, please try and take some pics please.

Thanx

Revv

Tonight, I was at having dinner with my girl at Goenchi Kodhi, a joint off Turner Road. I was sitting facing the door and saw the silver Range Rover pass by. I got up and went to the door, but, the babe had gone a long way. Damn!

Mr. bacchan is probably the only one in mumbai to own a face-lifted Range Rover 2005.
All others are old models.

His white RR 4.0 SE isnt the 2005 model. His is the 2003 model i guess. The same as the one above, Raheja's and the UK consulate ones.

Hey Dipen,
i think that my cousin in Delhi has got his 911 Carrera S and the one in mumbai has booked his M5 and it will be here soon.
I think he sold off his old M5 and right now he is using the old look 530i.
Will post pics once i get my digicam.
