Default BMW 8 series

Hey guys, I was just on my way back from college when this black beauty joined in. The car was coming out of BMW service station Navnit motors. It was black and sexy as hell. I also got to see RR Phantom twice on the flyover .. it visits this place, the only BMW service station in mumbai.

Navnit is the only BMW service station in Mumbai. They are dealers for BMW, Range Rover/Land Rover and Rolls Royce

The black 840 you saw is really a beautiful machine . I have some pics . Will put them up soon

well, seems like one more sneeked in without you noticing.

Its a deep metallic blue one seen around south bombay regulary for many years now. Usually parked inside the glass building premises opp. the race course.

One of the best designed cars in the world IMO.

Seen a 8 Series a year back while returning from the Bentley display at Worli. Maybe its the same Dippy posted. And also seen another red one at the Auto Show in 1997!

Hey Rtech,

The one you speak of was not dark blue, but dark green am i right?

The same car has been repainted to black a few years back, which is what Dippy has pics of.
