Lol ! I also saw that on NH-1 . Ecks had to stop a couple of times to wait for his driver . But most of the time his driver kept up with the pace of the M3 .

And by the way , ecks congratulations for The GT-R !!

How can a CR-V keep up with a ~500 horsepower BMW? I bet your CR-V's nitroused Hats off to his abilities though. The wait for the GT-R is killing us, so we can only guess what you must be going through!!!

The thing was that there was a lot of traffic near the Delhi border till Kurukshetra . So it was like we were moving at snail's pace . But after that the M3 was let lose . Then after that i saw KD at the Ambala toll !!
So that was how his driver was keeping up with d ~500hp BMW !

The title sounds much better now...Brits, Bavarians, Samurais and Bulls! Nice! Considering you still don't have the 'horse' in your garage. But I'm sure you'll have a Prancing horse in a few years time, or may be a few months.

Lol, Did you pick him up from WRC or sumthing ?? He must be pretty well talented to keep up with a 4.?L Supercharged V8 Coupe(that too with tons of KD's mods) in a 2.4L SUV. Hats off to your wing-man. Btw, is the CRV AT or MT ?

Actually it's quite ironic! The day I saw Karan's M3 pictures with the new BBS CH wheels happened to be the same day I came across the pictures of this scintillating M3 GTS! Boy does it look hot!

I came across this super looking black M3 as well!

The BMW M3 GTS has the alloys of Karan's M3 and the paint job of his LP640. Nice! Car manufacturers are taking inspiration from him

The LP's color is Arancio Atlas i.e Mettalic Orange. This is a Solid Color. Just for the Record. I know you meant on a Lighter note.

Matte finish is available as a color option and a vinyl/sticker. The SX4 guy mentioned that he got the car re painted , while the GTR will be getting a vinyl wrap on the entire car, thereby not only protecting the original gloss black paint of the car but also giving a matte satin texture finish. One can get the wrap in any color imaginable , so as long as a visual sample is available.

Karan, can you disclose the approx cost of the Vinyl Wrap ? Can it be bought and Locally Installed. Or it needs to be done there only ?
