so the bmw studio is essentially a glorified dealership showroom with more amenities ?

I hope by this they get some after market BMW tuning products such as Alpina and Hartge accessories like they do at bmw dealerships worldwide.

Looking forward to seeing this in Mumbai too.

Will create a heck of an impression on potential customers; BMW is really going all out with its branding exercises. Good stuff. Maybe the Delhi BHPians can visit the studio and post some pictures?
