Congrats look awesome ! Is the stock suspension for India higher than usual ? or let me put it this way, do different countries get different stock suspensions depending on their roads and etc. ?

The stock suspension is certainly not higher as the ground clearance stands @ 140 mm

But if you see after inputting the VIN No the many details & features mentioned of my car, here is a screen shot of one of the pages;

Name:  1.jpg

As highlighted in YELLOW ( POOR ROAD PACKAGE ) it is interesting to see the alterations done for the Indian conditions.

& I think this code S815A is for the modifications done in the suspension system.

So i guess the above answers your Q

Yes indeed the roads are pretty challenging to drive because of traffic & too many vehicles on small roads but this is within city limits otherwise the highways are pretty much fantastic to drive on & some great stretches indeed.

The best part is that theres not much of a problem with the speed limits as there is almost zero surveillance of speed cams/ radar

My car came in as a CKD & assembled in BMW Plant at Chennai, India
Yes! I was just thinking about that when I was reading some articles about driving in India on Jalopnik.com. It must be fun to drive such a powerful car amongst crazy India traffic, rickshaws, ambassadors, etc, etc. And such lax speed enforcement much less rules of the road

Yup ! Not really sure what modification they have done as the ground clearance stands at 140mm like globally available F30s

Yup ! It surely is a task , there are -ves (bad roads in Mumbai) but +ves (not much of speed patrolling/cameras/radars)

+ ambassadors are a passe now, many global brands like GM,Hyundai, FIAT, BMW, Mercedes, AUDI, SKODA, VW & more have come & set up a base here some into full scale production & many assembling units too

Congrats man !!!
Nice options & color combo and a great write up. White looks hot.
With this price of 328i, you can buy Lime Rock Park limited edition M3 in US :-)
Mumbai roads with all those green mountains around are really cool for long drives.
Now im remembering my old road trip from Punjab to Goa via Mumbai when I was there.
What state is this registration number from, DN ?

Thanks man !

I Agree regarding the inflated pricing of these beauties in India, in fact the prices in India have further gone up 25% on CBU's i.e. post 2013 budget

DN = Dadra & Nagar Haveli, it is an union territory in Gujarat

Oh yeah...It came to my mind after I posted.
Not been there, but I've heard there are nice scenic drives. Post some more pictures with your F30 on those roads :-)

And price, yeah its 100%+ custom duty.
My cousin bought his 320D e90 5-6 months back and got heavy discounts because of outgoing model.

Btw, how much warranty do you get in India, years and miles?
