Nice catch there Shamik!

There is a similar black E93 M3 in Bangalore as well and it's often spotted on Brigade Road.

Indira, man you're one lucky guy! Getting to drive a red M3 from Mumbai to Goa is a dream for many! It looks very nice, by the way! I'm not a fan of the wood-trim inside the cockpit though. Aluminum or carbon-fiber would've been better IMO.

EDIT: That red car in the background is probably a Bimmer. But the blue one looks like a kit-car to me!

Were you lucky enough spotting any other exotics?
I did see a black CL55 AMG somewhere near Andheri, and a S63 AMG and BMW 760Li on Marine drive And one super low-slung car that I couldn't make out in the dark.
And my dad saw a blue Gallardo roaring and swerving through traffic at the Kherwadi signal while I was sleeping at home. Note to self: Sleep less.

Nice spotting there,unfortunately all i got to see in bombay was luxo barges and tons of them.In fact near taj the only exotic i saw was a Tata Aria,which was my first sight of one in the flesh!

Had spotted a CL in andheri too(black in colour?),maybe its the same one.

S63 is a rare catch though!

The owner drove it the way it should be driven on the eastern express highway.

Driving along side of him? The V8 soundtrack would have been amazing, I'm sure. I've heard M3s at close quarters. They aren't as loud as the naturally aspirated 911 Carreras in their power-band, but they sound great at full chat! Unless of course, you get an aftermarket setup, in which case, thing's will get interesting! EDIT: Wait a second, that's not a M3 Convertible, and this is the E93 M3 Convertible thread!

I couldn't hear anything as my windows were closed! Was alongside the M3 only for a few seconds, the car disappeared as soon as it got a clear stretch of road. I just noticed that this isn't a convertible!Thanks for pointing out.Mods,please do the needful.
