S600 Benz ..u are right..
It belongs to the narangs

Also there is one more mod on the car...and thats the spoiler....its not a City like spoiler ..
Its more like the spoiler on the astra...i dont know what u call thm ..its like an additional molding on the rear end
And a sticker measuring 2 inches by 0.5 cm labelled Lorinser (so small, u need magnifying glasses)

They are the sole distributors of the RED BULL energy drink in India.
there is a Red Bull Sticker at the rear end of the car

This car is seen regularly at the pheonix mills compound where their office is (just next to CO , the CAR stands exactly opposite the Resto Bar LUSH.

My biggest doubt:

This Narang also owns a royal blue colored bmw 4 door...which is labelled as M3
It had a after market spoiiler similar to the Evo 6 (not exactly the same though)
The M3 logo is there at the rear end....this looked like the orignal M3 logo

There is no M3 logo on the side like we have in Merc Sl55 (V8 Kompressor)

Sorry guys, I dont have a camera phone...so NO pics ..but i have given u the exact location ...any1 here can do the needful.

the model looked like a pre 2000 model

my DOUBT is:

1. is this a M3 ?
2. Is the M3 available in 4 door??

Hmmm, this got me thinking. Although I really don't recall seeing or reading about a E36 M3 4 door, it only makes sense for BMW to produce one right? I know they have the coupe and the convertable, but there's this nagging ffeeling about a 4 door M3 I just can't seem to get rid off.

On the other hand, maybe he just bought the M3 bodywork kit. Something similar to getting a Turbo kit for a 911 carrera. Something like this:





Confirmations anyone??

Dipen,

I know exactly of the Dark Blue "M3" you are talking about. I was initially always suspicious of it, and then was just accepting it when u tell me that its a 4door!!! something i totally never noticed!

If its a 4 door i think Rtech is right, that it may be a M3 add on kit.
If you look closely at the rear spoiler it says "BMW Motorsport" or something like that..... sorry..its been a looooong time since i looked at the car properly.

But the front and back and the side exactly ditto the same.

You guys are right, Its not a M3. Its just a regular 3 series with the M3 KIT. The Kit consists of Front and Rear bumpers and side skirts and spolers.
