Hey guys.. am back..
Dont know much bout why the ars been lying here since 6-7 yrs.. cause the management is a hush hush bout it.. nobody talks about the car.. she is like a ghost, but sure would be something when she was alive.. it feels sad :( . but the bottom line is that the engine is dead needs a major overhaul electricals r scrwed up.. only the owner (if he is interested can save her.. Regarding the X-5 sinner was taking about its a Blue 4.8 litre X-5 the only one in India.. the one sachin has is an 4.6.. the 4.8 sounds like an american muscle car!!

Regards,
Maverick

ajmat..........

The point GTO is trying to make........is..........that rebuilding a car......any car is an addictive exercise, that is considering finance is overlooked......

GTO.....i agree......rebuilding is such an awesome feeling......i go crazy when im watching Chip Foose and his team rebuilding!!!

Agree???

I will buy that for a lakh?

I will invest the money to repair it and modify it. Maybe after 30 years i will drive it.

but why is the dealer not saying anything about it. There is something fishy.
