Wow! that seven seems to be longer than the Swaraj Mazda.

Twister, Porsche offers the external spare as a factory fitted option.

Great news guys.. the latest generation 7 series have landed in Mumbai.. they are a refreshing change from the older E 65.. major mods are in the engine.. the 7 will be available only in 740, 750, and 760 in India.. as compared to the 735, 745 and 760.. the front and rear have been changed.. the rear end looks much more sportier.. front end looks distinctive.. not many changes in the interior.. will be posting the pics soon..

Regards,
Maverick

V12,
awesome pics and i think the 7 in our building is a 735i and not a 735Li as there is no idrive button in the back.
the i-drive at the rear is a paid option (and an expensive one too) even in the li version. only std in the 760

Ok.
Cool.
But guys i am getting a bit confused.
Isn't the 735 available in Li form or only i?
I haven't really seen a normal i so i would not know.
Will try to get better pics.
Oh and i made a small mistake.
Its 5 series not 7 series (Birlas) and they are the clean non bangled ones.

The 735 is available in both i(normal) and the Li(long wheel base). Only the 728 is not available in L form. In the latest gen bimmer the 728 has become the 730, the 735 is 740 ,and so on. ther 760 is a V-12 engine

It is not a 760, its a 735Li. V12 has already posted pics of it. Check pg 3 of this thread, post #42.

Gordon ,
Are you sure the car V-16 is talking about is the same one ,because even Sanjay Narang owns a white 760Li too and thats a 760 Li for sure...but don't recolect the reg no. though

Well just re-checked to be sure. Didn't pay much attention to the "MH" in V-16's post. The one I spoke about was MP-**-**-760. This car is white, has 760 and V12 badges, but originally a 735Li.

Anyways V-16, are you sure it was "MH" or "MP". If its "MP", then its not a 760.

ya gordon u are right.. the MP----760 is indeed a 735 and sanjay narang owns a 760Li with reg no. 3112, and what V-16 is saying that he saw a latest gen 760 is impossible.. there are only 2 on road delivered today.. and they are bought by one person.. these 2 740's are worth gawking at.. if anyone sees them.. just look at the wheels.. will be posting the pics soon.. also one more 740 has arrived for PDI scheduled for Pune..

Maverick
