Default BMW 7 Series

Seen two 7 Series when I was on my way home from Bandra. Both are one generation old. The dark blue one in Bandra and the silver in Santacruz Police Station signal.

I posted the links above by mistake, here are the photos, it'll be easier to see them now. In addition I've also posted photos of another silver 7 series.

Likewise!! If there is an alternative to the W126 (there isnt actually)....it is the best 7 series ever made!!

Superb pics, Gordon...understated design with loads of old-school engineering under the hood.

Electronics overdose sucks...and so does Bangle. Bring these on!

No it is not, the one advertised is a Kerala reg'd one which is in Bangalore - if you look at the mobile no given in the ad- it is a kerala no...unless there is another ad in the paper

Seen the car yesterday. The driver of this car told me that its for sale and an ad is placed in the paper. I haven't checked the ad. However as you say that the one advertised is a Kerala reg'd one. This one has a Maharashtra registration. So it maybe that there is another ad somewhere in the same or another paper, or maybe the ad will show up in tomm Classifieds paper...
