A first gen BMW X5 4.4i junked in Kalina reported in today's Times of India. Have been seeing this car since a long time. One of the very few 4.4i petrol X5s in the city left to rot - a pity.

Not sure Octane. This is a Mumbai registered X5 (Number 99 or 95 not sure). But this X5 has been lying around in this state since more than 6 months.

The original Harrier seems to have dropped it's jaw after hearing about Tata's plan to name their MUV after it.

True GeneralJazz - the Tercel / Corsa was a hot import back in the 90's. I remember being told that the landing cost of it was around 9-10 lakhs INR - in the same bracket as the Astra / Escort. The only selling point of this car was that it was a Toyota. The interiors / exteriors were no match for the wood finish interior of the Escort or the superior quality of the Astra. From all angles, the Corsa / Tercel looked almost a decade older. No wonder, it hardly sold in large numbers - but many still survive (although in a abandoned state).

One of the many many BMW E39 5 series gathering dust. This one is a 528i which I believe was an inline 6.

Spotted a Mercedes Benz 300D Limousine in a sorry state at a garage. Hopefully awaiting restoration.

I visited the garage again to get some detail on the vehicle.
It's a W126 380SEL which has been modified to a 4-door limousine.
As per the garage owner, it has been under restoration since quite a while now.
Attached are the few pictures.

Are these a part of the enclosed parking at UB City? I am jealous that you got an access to it. There are two guards always around the enclosed parking, making sure no one trespasses that section. I could only manage peeping through the gaps . But they have a lot of jewels inside. I will try and get a better picture the next time I am there.
