I knew a Indian (-origin, at least) guy in London, big in the industrial design field, who was one of the designers who worked in the BMW Mini interior.

So there's Indian input in the car! Just thought you might like to know that

information is absolutely correct,
the car belongs to toyato motors located at bandra close to candies.
had been there to show the owner of toyato the BMW320d that he was keen on buying. also saw a AC Schnitzer BMW at his place which had come for some work. also some classic bikes including a triumph and a BSA were there. guy is a big enthusiaist himself for sure.

the guy is a very big enthusiast himself. he owns quite a few vintage and classic cars. there were two mini's at his place at one point. the blue mini cooper s and a mini cooper. the later was sold to an actor and the cooper s is in pune now.

it is a great car lots of power style and easy to manuver in traffic. only thing that dampens the spirit are the potholes on the roads more like crators
