my highlights would be

2 1.8TTs, CL500, CLS500, 2 PHAETONS, 2 Z3S, Carrera ,Supras, Celicas, WRX STi blue, MR2 black and silver ,750 (diesel), 5 series (diesel), 645ci (golden), VW Tourag, brabus ML, AMG ML...

apart from numerous cayennes ,SLK , ML ,S classes (oh i saw a S600), 7 and 5 series..

Nice finds, some of my finds match yours. Alrighty, I shall be specific too. I saw one silver 1.8TT twice in GK1, a silver CL500 in GK1 I've seen several months earlier as well on the MG Road, a CLS350 in gold, one 996 911 Carrera Cabriolet in Silver, one Boxster S in Deep blue or black, a red Supra in GK1 (by M Block, its always there), a white showroomed W129 SL500 in GK1 as well, one e60 5 series in gold, one 528i e39 in silver with xenons, one blue TDi Touareg (as I know whom it belongs to) in GK1 and that black Brabus ML, now on sale, and the only one of its type in India. I also spotted a blue 4.4i X5 on the day of my departure.

I still want to see the 1 crore+ babies! Was it a W220 S600? I sure hope it wasn't rebadged, and was actually the authentic machine that it should be.

You're probably right, considering the circular rear light...but still quite debatable. Unless you know the particular car, I'm surprised how you know the engine size as well! A 3.0i, not bad.

Nop it was Silver. And it was Z3. As i said, my eyes read "3" , but had confusion about Z or X. Since X3 is an SUV, so this must be Z.

P.S. Any idea of 0-100 of Z3 ?

Ah, doubt cleared then.

The 3.0i Z3 had the fastest acceleration, 0-100 in roughly 6 seconds. The slowest was the 1.8L, with something over nine seconds for sure. If I'm not mistaken, the 1.8L Z3 used to retail in India without a music system several years ago. How correct am I? What did it retails for? 25 lakhs? Details would be appreciated.

The X3 is the ugliest car to come from the 'Bangle-box-of-shockers'. Truly devastating. I'd laugh at anyone who buys one in India.

5.4 seconds for the M Coupe, I remember that vividly.

Awesome, a W220 S600, brilliant stuff. A black GT, yum!

Was the Touareg blue in colour with white leather interiors? If so, I know whom the owners are. They also own a Toyota Celsior badged LS400 (though they won't admit it, and I figured out by myself) and a A160. They reside in GK1.
