OT - Just came back after surfing Cartoq website for good 30 mins. It's annoying to see that more than 60% content is lifted from Team-BHP.



Rest 40% is lifted from other Automotive websites & Blogs. Website has credited Team-BHP for every information, but I can not digest too much of content lifting.

OT, It's the same with cardekho as well mostly. I think carwale still remains one of the best online portal (not forum) for car news and prices and even their launch predictions are pretty accurate

That 530d looks like his latest acquisition (BMW gives him complimentary cars with complimentary service but still). Spotted it at the Navnit workshop few months ago, has the front lip installed and looks super clean.

I've never seen that shade of blue on the regular 5 series! I think its called Monte Carlo Blue, only seen it on a few M5's before. Probably, its a special order since its their brand ambassador.

Sachin is known to have a great taste in cars and going by what I heard from a dealer principal in Mumbai who maintains his car that he's extra extra choosy with BMW India and why won't he after all one of the world's most successful cricketer endorses the brand, He had got BMW India to give him a X5 M50d even though the car was never introduced in India, his last gen V12 7er was an individual edition with his logo embossed on the seats, M6 Gran Coupe had special paint called Frozen silver if I'm not wrong and now this one.

The Sachin 530d also looks like it has the grille from the actual M5 and not just the M-Sport package. I wan under the impression that colour is exclusive to the M5 too, definitely a special order! Great choice by the master.

Sighted a news report on how the Pandya brothers surprised their father with a new car.

Please click here for the detailed report.

An excerpt:

Quote:
India all-rounder Hardik Pandya's father Himanshu Pandya said recently that he was surprised to see his son notching up a century in the third Test match of his career. Pandya not just surprised his father with his whirlwind ton, but also made him proud by gifting him a car. Hardik's elder brother Krunal, who also plays for Mumbai Indians, took his father to a car showroom. Hardik, who was on a video call from Sri Lanka, was assisting his father and brother in selecting the car. Hardik took to Twitter and shared the video.

"So glad to see his face lit up like that?this is the guy who should get all the happiness in life and deserves all the credit, my dad!," the tweet read.
The video is also on YouTube.

.

The expression on the proud father's face is priceless, to say the least. The video and the tweets might appear a bit overboard to some, but for folks whose cars play a major role in their life's completeness (read most Bhpians), this sure is a touching moment.

A YouTube video and a touching article about Hardik Pandya gifting a new car to his dad, but no mention of the car! Anyway, looks like a Jeep Compass.
