Does anyone have any idea about this?

Not much action in this thread,so will post some pictures taken by the good folks at "Kolkata car fanatics"

Firstly a blue Z4 spotted by Rishi bhagat.I think this is a new one because it has O6F reg.Others were 06E and 06D(i think)

Also brand new Audi A8 and a black Jag Xj at JLR showroom.
Also a sad pic of a E32 BMW 7 series rotting away.

Its at bandhagat area in howrah,clicked by one rishi bhagat and owned by his friends family.Apparently the result of a family dispute.

What say,what about a restoration? BMW electronics are supposed to be notorious and unlike the earlier Mercs from that era(W126) to get parts for this car would be extremely tough in India.

Seems like Calcutta is falling in lover with convertibles.

There is another Blue Z4 with red interiors standing at OSL.

A new Sky Blue E Cabriolet is also standing at Interkrafts.

Yep. That's the Salt Lake Jag. Post 1963. It's often parked on the road in front of the house.
