This is great new Mav, i presume these r CKD's?
Whats the latest on the 5 series front, i have been in touch with some of your sales reps and they still havent been able to get hold of the technical specifications for the 525i,525d and 530 as they are going to have upgrades in the performance after the facelift. Let me know if you have more info on the same.

They are not CKDs. These are manufactured in Germany and imported as CBUs. Will be great to get the initial ones as the later models will be manufactured in India.

I'd like the black one please Maverick. Thank you. :-).

I dont think they have the spare wheel. I think ARAI agreed to the runflats.

Hey that's awesome.Those BMW rock! and they are definitely better than those Merc which just have SNOB value in India.
I've heard that BMW are setting up a plant to manufacture these cars.

Yup.. these r CBU's from Germany.. not the "Made in India ones".. and these r already sold.. the 325i's r fuly loaded with Xenon, i-drive etc.. whereas the 320i and 320d's r basic.. and they do not have a spare wheel even optional!
