v1p3r you must be talking about the red 840. the office where the 850 stands is in the haji ali area.

No dude, this was a dark colour. Almost black. This was that Speed Run weekend, or around it somewhere. The car may stand in the Haji Ali area, but I'm sure the owners sometimes drive it around Carter Rd.

yeah the owner must be driving it all over town, i'm sure. the reason i said the red 840 and not the olive green 850 is because the owner of the 840 frequents bandra and carter rd very often. a classic moment like that is very likely in his car. so i have a rough idea of who was driving the 850 that day.

To set the records right, there is a Black 840 besides the Red and the Green/Black which you guys are talking about. That makes it three in Mumbai.

The 840ci and 850csi tuned by Dinan are awesome although fans of AC Schnitzer tuned beemers would agree to disagree...
I wonder if BMW dealers like Navnit would be able to work on these tuned beemers. Skeptical ??

this is my friends car, that i was mentioning. Cyrus it must have been a young guy at the wheel. the older set of alloys that he had on the car were far better than these.
Sorry guys i have booked it already in my budget so if he is willing then i will take it, if not then i have another as back up.
