How do you like the changes on the updated Thar, compared to your earlier one?
So far I find the latest Thar is better in look, brakes and suspension. I have used only 300 kms so far as still waiting for RTO registration. I will share my detailed view after some km.

If I am not wrong, those are continental cross tires. How would you rate the tire in terms of comfort and noise, as my friend is also planning to install the same on his fortuner.

Thanks in advance.
Yes, those are Continental Croscontact AT 255/65 R16. I have changed it on day one but so far covered only 300 km so can't comment on comfort however the noise is increased on highway compared to stock BS HT but that was expected.

Naming it as "Knight Fury"

Congratulations on your JEEP. Is this only car you own if I may ask?
My guess is its not.

THAR has been a aspirational vehicle for many, but not many are ready to take the plunge and here you are doing it for the second time! Awesome.

I don't know what it takes to be a Jeeper, hence it is threads like these which help me understand. Looking forward to this thread eagerly.

Thanks I have other car Maruti Estilo however that is 10 year old now hence kept for city use only.

Not sure what it takes to be Jeeper because I failed to be one at the time of last Thar. But there is something really different which pulled me towards it again after owning a best SUV in class Safari Storme for 3 years and 40 K km.

Congratulations Thar4x4 on your second Thar! As others mentioned, many like Thar but only a few go for it. You must be among the rare breed who bought it twice. It is very capable offroader and you can go places where others won't even think of going.

It might feel more uncomfortable now as you are used to luxurious seats of Storme, but I guess you will get used to it quite soon. Congrats once again.

Congrats Thar4x4; you may now want to change your handle as Thar4x4x2 or something like that?

I have experienced this syndrome or repeat buying first-hand. My Punto Emotion Pack was having problems and problems and I decided to sell it, did a serious car-shopping, took test-drives in several cars and finally exchanged her for another Punto with absolutely nil confusion. The only other car that was considered seriously: the mighty Polo GT.

Some vehicles are irreplaceable. Enjoy!

Knight Fury is doing awesome and never stationed for single day from the date of purchase. It is going everywhere from office, market, weekend trips and offroads.
