Bear in mind, I have absolutely no doubt that there credibly exist Delhiites with Gallardos (standard, 560-4s, Superleggeras), and it's neat how you guys personally know them, but it's simply that that particular video doesn't look quite right to me. Just my opinion, dudes
The incar video doesnt seem like its delhi from any angle, it could be bbay but i speculate it isnt, he had his car there just recently and I know bombay is not 15 C at nite in feb/mar.

I know VJ cuz his sis is married to my best friend and we hang out a lot including VJ, infact I have been telling him to join me on track and get the feel of driving the car for real when he is visiting me in may. Lets see how it goes.

Sorry, who is this VJ? I'm hearing about this guy for some time now. I am curious to know about him. I know we're not supposed to reveal others' identity here, but atleast can someone PM me.

Has it got a body kit on?
Whats with the sidesteps? Are they standard on the X6?
The rear also looks different, infact horrid.
Why do people buy this car anyway?

I guess not Robesh, the BMW website shows otherwise.
Checked after posting that.

I have seen similar sidesteps on the X3 and X5 also.
Guess it is not part of the standard package on any car.
Anyways, it looks cheap and useless.

Those are running boards and are very much standard in all the X series vehicles in India and Abroad. The ones you saw in the site must be prepped for the shoot buddy.

Here is the X6 Spec sheet. In both variants the Aluminium Running Board is a standard option. Hope it helped And, dare talk about bimmers again Grr !

I have no idea where I should post this, but I saw a horrid looking X6 yesterday (of course here in Montreal). Imagine front of new 7 series on X6!!! I was like but I could not find any information on BMW web about anything like this. And this could not be a aftermarket work. Any idea what on earth this car is? Sorry, no pics coz I wasn't carrying a camera.

P.S. Mods please move the post to appropriate place if necessary. Thanks.

Yep, this is what I saw in white color. Sorry, I was driving in opposite direction and slopping roof line of the car suggested it was a X6. Never the less, it looked like a big blunder from BMW.

Anyway, Thanks for helping me identify this, Ayan.

Great pics of the 430 bro, love it!
The bentley and the cayenne has been seen on the thread before I guess, does the owner also have a RR Phantom?
