Smile BMW mini spotted

Hi All,

Don't know if there are other pics floating around on mini in india. I spotted one in pune recently on the bridge just before koregaon park. managed to take 2 pics from my mobile. Any more pics on the bmw mini are welcome

This was a karnataka regd vehicle - only took pics from rear as didnt wanna offend the owner



a closer look




also a pic of a toyota celica i saw near esquare flyover in pune



cheers,
j

nice .. driving a boke and clicking pics .. this is what happens in india now just imagine while this guiy is clicking a pic the guy infront of him brakes he goes crashing into the car and then he and the other bikers start blaming and harrasing the car driver that it was his fault... kepp up the great work ...

PS I dont know you not attcking you but just the foolish irresponsible thing that you did and the state of affairs on indian roads

I think you observation skills are more rash than the photographer. Check the riders mirror and you will figure that it was the pillion who snapped it

thanks ajmat

whatcanthisbe - no apologies needed - its important to be safe on road and anyone would think the biker n not pillion snapped the pic, its just that I am safety paranoid too, so would never do such a stupid thing.

So anyone seen minis before on indian roads , or am i the only one!!

Yes it is his and he stays on North Main Road KP. You can often spot him driving this around on weekends with his wife and kid.

According to a news item that I read sometime back, BMW plans to sell the mini in India in 2009. Price? around 13 lacs.
