Default Another M3

Spotted this m3 some time back. my fried was driving in front of it in CEDIA and we tried to block the M3 for a while so could take pics. But still driving and clicking pics is something i need to learn properly

Still managed to click a few pics. Great car. There was some mod done on the front side. very un usual one. On the bonnett. I know the house that this M3 belongs to, will try capturing more pics in day time.

Sorry for crappy pics.

Default Black M3

Its raining M3's in Ahmedabad. Spotted this Black beauty about an hr ago. The chap driving it was enjoying the drive and wasnt pushing it too hard.

Also spotted near by was a old gen 7 series but couldnt take any pics.

Haha well I don't see any reason why he shouldn't enjoy driving a 80 lack car that petrol heads like us dream of owning.

What i meant was he wasnt behaving like a few others u get to see in Ahmedabad and i am sure else where too. He was respecting the car as well as the traffic around him. his average speed on an open stretch road was also not exceeding 60 KMPH. Most times i was either behind him clicking pics or driving parallel to him admiring the black beauty.

The car was running on temp plates so i guess he was maintaining the inital speeds

Also, if the red number plate is a permanent reg than its a Central Govt official one, it must've the appropriate symbol embossed on it. As far as this one in the pic goes, looks like a normal temporary registration. I dont think at all its specific to BMWs.
Coming back to the earlier discussion about RED reg plates; the below posted Black M3 was on temp plates and the number on it read exactly it is on the White M3 above. But it wasnt in RED color. It was normal white on black. Could it mean that when the customer is given the car on temp plates its given on either RED/WHITE or WHITE/BLACK combo and when it is with the dealership it is kept on the other one???

I am sure many of our fellow team members would be able to clearify this doubt for us.

It seems like India is raining with Cayennes. Seems to be one of the popular import SUV's.

He would be running in the engine as per the norms, so not exceeding a certain RPM and speed. This car also looks to be a convertible. If you see closely the creases on the frame is noticed. The guy has some guts going in for the 19" wheels. Most of the M3 owners go in for the 18" wheels due to our bad road conditions. Raining M3's yes as dealers have unsold stock which they would be clearing with a discount.

It must have been a red SLK obviously. Not an SLR!
