@Lambo- I checked pics of the US version 5 series with natural brown interiors and there too the carpet etc are black. Yes the alloys are different, 5 spoke ones which look rather small even though they are 17inchers. IMO still prefer the multispoke on my 525d.

@d3mon- No remaps especially on this one, I still havent convinced myself to get one on the 525d ! And like you said, remapping the 520d would be shooting myself in the foot by giving the driver so much power!

@bharti- Thats a blue one, its a 525d too, not mine.

Yes, it is my second 5 series. We always get two of each car we buy but both aren't kept in the same city. The 525d will be in Bombay.

Congratulations dude !! What pride one must feel when looking at his twin Fivers standing in the garage. Sigh. I'm interested in the interior pics, the brown interiors looks really good on the BMWs and the Audis IMO.

Shail please tell me how much u spent on garware,coz I am offered 29K for the diamond(94% front & 99% sides and rear) series in vkool.

Lovely policy. I truly wish I was a part of your family somehow!

Next time, if I may suggest, please buy ONE Flying Spur/RR4 instead of two 750Li's
