How would you rate him for reliablility when the situation is this:

Buys a '99 Model e 39 BMW (528i), paints it a dark color which the M5 had upsize the tires and wheels, badges it as a ///M5, somehow manages to get 4 silencer pipes 2 on either sides with all the bells and whistles and asks 4700000 for it.

The lotus appears and disappears unles it is a lemon that comes and goes. Ditto one blue mx5. Who was the sucker who bought the "M5" ?

Is there any reliable car dealer in Bangalore

There is another guy in Langford Town with a collection of Merc W140's and old Lexus

Hey, if the "M5" is what I think it is, it was a DIESEL! I sat in it, and at the time, it was still badged a 530d or a 535d, not sure. Medium-dark blue, looked sexy as hell.

If it's a different car, I'm obviously looking slightly foolish now!

Anyone who buys a 528i (6 cyls) mistaking it for a M5 (V-8) is asking for it. Quad pipes are available, dime a dozen and you could make em too. the thing is if anyone is interested in a M5 then he surely knows what an M5. still if someone got suckered, he deserved it

Nice pics V12...well I too have seen a lot of imported cars...and I mean a lot...unfortunately I dont have a digicam nor do I have a cell with a cam...but incase any of you guys in Bangalore can help you are sure to find a bunch of cars near the Hudson Circle just as V1p3r said.
