[quote=indra_slk;1765135]Yes there is one more. It is not seized by the custom or anything, he just doesn't get it out because of the big speed brakers. The no plate is F430.


Wow them speed breaker's! What a waste, if he waits for 40 years he would have certainly made the best car investment on the planet for having an intact ferrari with the lowest mileage ever and some vintage value

I know of folks who park their prize possessions in their living rooms - one dud in pune had a E220 CDI parked in his living room untouched for years

I think it is completely stupid to buy such a car and not use it I had posted else where these cars are very tempting and bought on impulse/passion which soon turns out to be a headach because in the real world - India it is very impractical at least today maybe better in 10/15 years

The first latest gen BMW 7 Series is here in Goa. Owned by the guy who owns the Honda, JCB, Ford and Volkswagen dealership. Their car can be spotted at their house opposite the Marriot. Its white in colour.


1) Spotted two 5 Series parked at Inox. One is my uncle's which is a 525d(since I went with them). The other one is a very dirty 520d. My driver said that the latter crashed into a bike. Its bumper fell off.

2) Spotted 320d in Margao.

3) Fully loaded X5 with those huge wheels. Owned by a not so famous builder.

The 5 looks like, just arrived from a long/dusty/muddy drive. Badly needs a wash.

Like the pic of the German(3) shot from a German(E).

The X5 had 20' Y Spoke or 19' which come with the 4.8 ?

A Volvo S80 V8! Wow!
Nice find there bro!

But how does it compete with its other rivals in India?
AFAIK the volvo figures are not exactly what we can call good!

There's one near the Captain of Ports office (I think this is the one) and an identical one near the Municipal Garden.

There was this one famous Goan t-bhpian who restores cars like these. He even got a C class at a dirt cheap price,restored it and made us jealous.
He even worked his magic on a X-trail which was bought from leela resort.
Forgot his handle.
Maybe we should let him know about this.
