That is signature RR. I haven't seen any Land rovers with body colored door handles. But, strangely enough " I love it" the old school way

Yea, Range Rovers doesn't come with body colour door handles. The RR has its own ways to stay cool!

It was 30 or 35 if I'm not mistaken.

when did you see the car? He came in today and if you had seen him this afternoon, maybe it was more than 235.

Not today, saw it about 3days back near Domlur. He was going at around 30-40kmph. Doesn't really have a choice which those profile tires i guess. But have to say those rims look AMAZING.

Front was 225 section tyres and rear was 235. 10j is too wide for 235 and he was having problems. He kept feeling that the tyre isnt seating properly on the rim and that is because it wasnt.

He came today again but I was busy. My colleague told me that he was changing it and putting thicker tyres at the rear.

However, when I spoke to him a few days ago, he said that he cant put thicker tyres at the rear as he would have to do suspension mods on the car which would void the warranty.
A BMW 320D? I've seen a black BMW 3er doing the rounds around Lavelle road - St. Mark's road - Residency road and it had massive wheels. Probably 20"! But they didn't look like BBS to me! Is it the same car? Nikhil, are you sure they are BBS? We need pictures. Manish, help!

EDIT: Whoops! Sorry! Totally different car! Could we have some pictures of this WHITE one please?

No Manish. Sorry. I probably wasnt there when it came in. Even if I was, I wouldnt have clicked pictures! . Unless a Lambo or Ferrari comes in to our shop, I wouldnt click pictures!

Hummers, Range Rovers, Audi Q7s, X5s, even 911s are a little common!
