There is a black 8 series in Mumbai. Was last seen undergoing front end work at one of the garages opposite the Four Seasons Hotel.

the Red one goes to Four seasons for aircondition work. the thread has pictures of it standing there getting work done. where is four seasons hotel?

GS welcome back. the add states 840 but it is a 850 as far as i know (could be wrong also). but it would definately not stop or discourage me from getting one.

i am asumeing it would be in the 20 to 30 lacs bracket.

akshay the four seasons i am talking off is in Tardeo. the race course road place you talk off is SR House where the Black one is seen. the owners office. i dont think the car goes to the garage that is slightly ahead, atleast i presume not.
