You think it will be that easy to get in?. Just show the received SMS and that's it!. One of the Vodafone girls swore to me that's all there was to it if i wanted to attend the event. Let's see.

Maybe its the parallax, but if I was in the X5, that close to the Omni, I'd be more than a bit nervous.

The BMW panels and paint jobs probably cost multiple omnis each!

Any word/pics of the track event yesterday? It's funny how the Indian Express had a pic of the CLS63, and called it "SL63 Car"

Bishop Mathias Avenue, tonight; pulled over to let something big coming towards me pass. Spotted the Bentley badge and grill as it did, but the amazing thing was the purr as it accelerated away. Left a certain feeling of having brushed up against royalty!

AFAIK, the mercs are out of town. during a night drive the day before yesterday, i spotted the 2 cars outside the Merc Transcar service centre. i stopped to try and take pics, but the security guard, who (believe it or not) was actually sitting in the car, got out and said no pics, and sat in it again..

Default BMW 650i

Spotted this BMW 650i at the Vani Mahal signal (G.N Chetty Road, T.Nagar) today afternoon.

Superb integration of the reverse lights onto the rear bumper.

The 650i undoubtedly a wonderful car but at around the same price isn't the M3 a better choice?
