Default Bmw M5 E 60 Spotted In Chennai

I was back from tution on my dio.That time i went to my friends Auto Shop to check for Philips Diamond Vision for my Indica.I went to his shop and i spotted A BRAND NEW M5 E 60 standing.The car belongs to Hotel Saravana Bhavan.The man who came with the car was the hotel server and the driver had gone out for tea.The server was listening to 93.5 Fm on the cars i-drive.I saw the M-Button and all the other gadgets.It stood on big 19''Wheels.A silver colour.I saw on 6-4-2006 at about 7:30pm.But Sorry for not getting the pics.The shop owner told me he will tell me when the car comes again.That time i will surely get the pics.There was the server who did not allow me to take the pics.It seems it came for putting Garware Film.

We will see more of these in Chennai with BMW setting up shop here. Sweet beauties for the eyes.

I once spotted the BMW X5 of film actor Mammooty. I caught him after some hard reving at the savera flyover. I was amazed to see the car. In that excitement, I forgot about Mammooty. Finally, When I looked at him, he smiled at me and zipped off thinking I was admiring the X5 all the while.
Remember, he was the first few people to import BMW in India.

Somehow.. The thought of Sarvana Bhavan and M5 dont seem to jell together .. But its good to know that u can afford to buy an M5 after selling idli sambhar, dosai and vada for a long long time !!

hey dont underestimate them. sarravana bhavan is apprently owned by some really well heeled individuals and they have branches in singapore, malaysia, dubai etc. dont think an m5 is much of a worry for them!
