Super Buy... IMO White is quite sober and does not bring out the real lines and design of the car.

Bahh .. Who cares when its a M3. eh?

Nice choice. That Engine is one the best rated engines in the world in terms of reliability, build, performance and a whole lot of other things.

Let us know what it feels like when you open her up on a open road.

Thumbs up contrast

The white paint, and dark wheels and roof contrast each other very nicely indeed. That isn't a panaromic roof now, is it?

I like the vents on the hood.

How many kms have you put on the odo yet?

If I know KBK (and I do) then he has probably already made liquid explosion at high speed! Congrats KBK!

Hi guys, just got back from Goa! I've never missed being in Bombay as much as I have the past few days!

@ GTO: Fortunately I have a closed garage for her, but you can't get much by way of pics in there can you?!

@ Lancer: Speed97 is what it takes to run the M3. It's available in Bombay and on the Expressway outside Pune, not sure where else, so my list of places to go will be somewhat limited for a while!

@ Rehaan: Thinking of taking her up to Mabi, that should provide the twisties eh?!

@Iron: I've taken her to JUST under 6,000 rpm (inadvertantly) and the party starts somewhere just over 5,000 to be honest. I normally switch between 5 - 5,500 rpm, so I've not really had a taste of what the REAL power is all about yet!

@Aah: Not sure how many Kms I've done. Ran just over 100 Kms in my first 24 hours with her. But I've been away for five days. Will have to make up for lost time!

@Chram: You know me? You sure?

Thanks for all the kind words again guys, I'll be sure to take some more pics and keep posting them.

kbk would love some pictures of the car's interior too. Happy motoring .

As for long drives... you can always try putting octane boosters in reliance petrol. I guess you'd get less fuel efficiency and power but what the hell.... long drives are atleast possible.

Pure blisss !! Not many of us can say that unless you ride a bike and shift at 5500 rpm on avg

And what happened to your "i am gonna run her in easy" plans

kbk , congrats on the car .

Could you shed light on how a BMW customer is treated after the car is delivered in terms of service and support .
How is the warranty on this car ? ,2 years ? unlimited mileage ? unlimted support ? personal service manager available 24X7 ...?? parts flown in air to be available in 8 hours or 24 hours within after breakdown ..?? how is the service level agreement .Just curious how would BMW treat for a such high paying customer .
