I have seen a blue one in Pune near the PYC ground. It is always parked there at the same position. It has Mumbai registration.

well ajmat.. runflat tyres come as standard on the 5,6 and 7 series.. and the RR phantom.. they are not meant to be repaired.. once the tyre is punctured it can be used for a distance of upto 100 kms at a speed of 80 Kmph.. if exceeded or the damage is too major, the tyre has to be replaced.. on the other hand if the damage is minor, it can be repaired as a normal tubeless tyre is repaired..which in turn is not recommended.. actually speaking this feature is useless for indian conditions as the roads are in a really bad state.. and the cars with RFT tyres do not have spare wheels, they have to orer a special emergency wheel which is of a smaller size, around 110/80 which can be used to get u to the next tyre centre..

Regards,
Maverick

Thanks Maveric - this makes the Bimmer a real bummer when doing inter city driving on our roads! Again, do you stock spare replacement tyres just in case ?

Lightbulb BMW 530d .. Looks GOOD!

Spotted this UN car while coming back from college...
The side view looks very similar to the Accord.

This car belongs to me and is in Delhi right now. I love ripping it and no matter what ppl say, i think they are beautiful. I love the way they look.
also i have seen only 5 5's in delhi in the past 1 year. so as common as an E???? No way brother. The E is on every street corner and every taxi stand.

I will agree that our E 240's are more comfortable to be driven in though.
thats we use them with the drivers.
The BMW is much nicer to self drive.
I'll put out a list of all my cars when i get some time.
I'm a car freak... have some nice little toys.
Someone mentioned my cars in delhi, but they got a little info wrong.
For e.g, the yellow lambo IS NOT MINE!

No arguments abt the performance or interior styling, or any other factor. But, in this world polarized between Anti and Pro Bangelized BMW's, I will remain in the Anti-Bangelized camp.
I think, no amt of this line of styling is going to make it look like a cat. The pre-Bangle sytling was a class apart.

Wonder if we should rename BMW as Bangelized Motor Worken ;-)

BMW are not yet "for sale here" they are all imports. Never really heard of a 540d it probably was a 530d?

the 530 d is very great to drive with Steptronic automatic gearbox.My dad owns one.On motorway we are at 135 km/h and 2000 RPM.Much better Handling than the E class.My dad had one E class current model in the past which was slower.
