Dear Rajith - let me be the first teamBHPian to congratulate you on acquiring the junior monk, enjoy! .

This clearly indicates that repeat customers exist in this market segment.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

It indicates a repeat customer exists..the first I've heard of though. Though for it to clearly indicate this category exists would require much larger numbers. I'm wondering why would you sell a relatively new thar just to buy another one. Its a fairly new entrant.

For certain questions theres never a straight answer, its a pure decision of heart and mind to sell a fairly new one with great mods and then again buy a new one and keep it raw...

Dear Howler - hello to you once again and thank you for your usual positive critique. We learn from you. I have quoted Rajith's reply to your question, although I am replying to you. Rajith is a very knowedgeable customer. Many customers have benefited from his feedback. .

I quote from the book, A Passion for Excellence: "The Purpose of a Business is to Create a Customer". This book also talks about "Building Customers as Brand Ambassadors for Life". Rajith's passion for this vehicle, culminating in his repeat purchase (inspite of him owning a very potent MM540 NGCS "without IFS" (HaHaHa!) demonstrates without any shadow of doubt that this target is achieved.

QED, my friend, enjoy! .

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Hello to you too! Yes my 'positive' critique is reserved for select firms like m&m and the like. I just drove a thar that a friend of mine picked up. I can't figure out how someone would go and buy another one after experiencing it once . he's too at a loss for words. He keeps all the stuff that falls off in the back. I was just referring to your generic all I encompassing comments in the belief that it was just euphoria that prompted such a general statement of 'repeat customer' in the plural sense. No reference to the op's buying decision. And its amusing you mention excellence in this thread although I will not argue with the fact that a thar can only convince one that it is indeed a process of 'building a customer' .. That's what most of your time will eventually be spent in
Have a good day sir.

Hi Rajith, thanks for posting such a detailed thread. I've been trying to source the Bilstein B6 HD shocks for the Thar in the US, but the part numbers you specified don't seem to be correct (I checked on Bilstein's German and Australian sites as well). I even googled "Bilstein + F4-BE3-6548-MO," but all I got was this thread, an import-export company in Chennai and a bunch of what looked like Indonesian websites. Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks!!

Thank you for the update, Rajith. Has the vacuum tank gotten any larger?

Cheers,

Jay

Unfortunately not.
Im planning to install a Mhawk tank on LHS fender as theres no space on RHS fender due to AC RD bottle and Tandem boosters or move the current tank near to the RHS firewall as in Bolero Storm, so that vacuum can be created instantly.
