Congrats Omar, that is total luxury on wheels. I just love the size on this car. It is very intimidating on indian roads.

Hope its a white, seen too many black beemers. I love the color white in these big super luxury cars.

Enjoy and drive safe

Congrats on the new buy. Have driven the 530D & 650i and they r pure driver machines!

Getting Fiat 500 fixed from HONDA that must be an eye candy. So HONDA dealers once again proves they have good support

Congratulations!
The car is looking quite good.
I wonder if this car comes with key as you have photographed keychain without key. Also I think BMW extended warranty package is quite good.

Have you opted for the second AC compressor ? I read in ACI that a second AC compressor is optional and eats into luggage space.

Thanks guys !!

No not the second compressor, don't need it. The present system is amazing.

That is the key in itself !!! It is not required to be put anywhere !!!

The best thing is that the key doesnt need to be inserted any where but needs to be inside the car !! Just have to press the engine start button !! (Comfort Access)

Congrats bro!
The car looks awesome!

I have a few questions to ask you about this car in comparison to the E:
- Can you feel the increase in the size when driving her in heavy traffic?
- Is it as easy to drive in heavy traffic?
- Hows is the visibility all round?

We have an E270 as well, which might be in for replacement soon (parts are starting to get replaced every now and then), and we were wondering if it made sense getting a bigger car as when dad goes for work, he generally travels via some very congested roads, roads I feel scared driving around in our fiesta!

Thanks Man !!

I have not driven the 7er yet, but I tried reversing and turning it in my house and Nope can't do it !! LOL !! Too big.

Although it feels easy to drive but I'm sure once a person gets used to it, it should be fine.

The visibility is good, the side view mirror's are much better than the E class !!

I would recommend you to take a test drive first. Yes it might cause a bit of problems in the traffic at first but once used to it, things should go smooth.

To be honest after driving the 500, every other car feels big !! LOL

Also a small suggestion, sell your merc before the new generation is launched or else the value will go down a lot. We plan to do the same after the monsoons.

And please dont go for the 5 series yet, I'm sure you must be aware they are cooking something for the new design. Have a look at the new 5 series GT on BMW UK website, it has the new 5 series front.

My father will start driving his 7er everyday only after the monsoons !!

Anyways take care and once again thanks.

Omar
