[quote=Maverick5490]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..

no no what i meant was not the latest gen 7 series but the one before that, the first chris bangle version

The 7 series looks really good.The length itself impressed me when i first saw it and till today it does.If given a chance to own a s-class or a beemer 7,the 7 would be my first choice.

BMW 7 Series pics - at Bandra Friday Afternoon









Pics taken from a running car on a Nokia 7610 - hence low quality.

Note that the white car has the US style boot lid - restricted numberplate recess used in Dubai/gulf states and Thailand

Mav,
i would disagree with it being the worst maintained just because of it's scratches.
This is India where people see a flashy car and imediatly leave their mark on it.
I mean how many people can keep on repainting their car?
Our Merc has a few scratches, palio just got a few dents but we can't keep repairing them because they will come back.
I believe you are talking about hand scratches and not proper scratches like on the bumper sides.

Well agreed u cant keep on repainting the cars..but this particular car is used very roughly.. taken to all the godforsaken paces.. the pics of the Cayenne turbo that i posted belong to the same person which is also in the same state.. and she has clocked more then 7000 k's in 2 months!! also max Beem's (atleast the new ones) are parked where no one can touch them.. and there are people who get their cars repainted even for minor damages..

Well that case if different.
We take our merc everywhere and it has logged 15Kkm in a year 3 months which is quite a bit. In our office, home, there is construction work going on and it is very difficult to mintain our cars. Also proper parking isn't available everywhere.
Though our car has a few scratches on the rear bumper and a few key/nail scratches on the body, i do not think it is as bad as the one you mention it to be.
