Hey Sonicmax,

I assume you are talking about the new bangled 5series?
As stratos said we saw a dark blue one a weekend or two back, but had no news of a white one in bombay!

cheers

Many told me it looks stunning in person so I wont comment till I see it for real.

But I still hate it after these pictures. BTW Dippy, good find.

Dippy, super quick as always with the cam. My friend just told me a couple of days back that he'd seen a black 530i. I really like it.
Good one.

The Silver 5 is seen often around the Cuffe Parade area, while I see a dark blue one at Colaba quite often. Saw a blazing white one in Pune the last time I was there. So far, I feel the lighter Metallic blue is the best for this car.

thats pretty nice, but those alloys look like a joke on the car..as if they have been taken from an esteem or something ,look like 15" sooo small..5 would look nice with 17s or 18s...

but over all its cool to have the car..i guess it is a better option than the E if you are bored of it and wanna do something different...
