No problemo jeepster, ok just a last one, I had no idea Team- bhp is no more a public forum and you get shot down for expressing your opinion just kidding brother. My thought of line was just to make Thar a bit different then 550 with regard to the soft top (looks of army 550 is my favorite I even congratulated Behram sir for the same subtle looks) as it is to be positioned as a lifestyle vehicle.
As we have seen through pictures Thar looks good with roll cage open top, as well as the export model hard top. Point is just to make Thar look bit different just in matter of the soft top, maybe for recognizing it

Regards

Pranav

Dear NDMS - you are absolutely correct, I also want to do the soft top differently and the complete details are absolutely ready in my head, with all cues taken from the CL340 classic of course, the aluminium folding pipes, the slanting angle, the colour co-ordinated schemes of body v/s canopy. Somebody said "wipers", somebody said "steering column switch", arre baba, I already know yaar !

PRAY GUYS PRAY! ONCE AGAIN!

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Pray??? Maan with the amount of praying I've done by now I would have topped the I.C.S.E, been in the I.A.S, settled in the U.S., married and divorced to Brooke Shields and had a body like Lou Ferrignio (and known how to spell it too). C'mon man we are waiting for the Thar or has it been rechristened as the 'miracle'.

Honestly, My ole fav is fading and it's either the Thar or the Bolero VLX. So please to be informing of price and when? Want us still to pray or would like all of us to begin chanting?

STGH!!!!!

While including the Aluminium Folding Pipes, please try to do away with the Folding Axles.

Arka

PS - Sirji you are too caught up in LOOKs and Top Speed, at the speeds mentioned by you what will happen to the rag-top?

I hear that lot of "Important" people are abandoning the hope of Thar and going for Bolero VLX . After all with it you can raise "Storm" and run circles in/around Thar

Let's not arrive at any conclusions yet, the final specs of the Indian Thar are not out as yet and the variants that would be available. If the homologation is still work in progress then there sure are some changes and additions that are being incorporated/considered.

Also Behram Sir has been trying his best to incorporate items that have been listed in our wish lists and its us who were/are waiting for an all new and capable 4X4

Let's support him and hope for the best!

Right after reading about your Leh-Ladakh trip, I thought I did want a faster Bolero and after driving one for seven -eight years...in my heart of hearts I know that the VLX will do more than nicely.

I was just waiting for something different, something with a 4wld option. Yesterday I was licking the paint of a red storm when I saw that turning the ignition lights up the 2wd and 4wd options. So why can't the buggers just give it 4wd. Even the showroom foreman reluctantly said,"Don't know why they always leave one thing out?"

If nothing else I will be counted among one of the important people by milecruncher.

Dear Milecruncher - Bolero VLX with 97 BHP, 3.73:1 axle ratio and higher kerb weight running circles around ----- WHAT ????

But then, there is going to be this Bolero VLX with ----- , (don't speculate guys, that's just my "bheja" working overtime) !

Dhabar sir,
I know you are fighting a battle, lets hope the results are favorable. Thar is your pet project, we all contributed to it as we wanted it to be world class off road! Thar for what it is and how ever it is, it deserves to see the light of the day.


BTW with Thar mechanicals and axle ratio a Bolero Storm 4wd will be spot on! And yes, in this version i am not going to ask for solid axle as it serves a different market - 4wd touring, not off roading!

Sir, sorry to say, but people like you and me are not counted in the "Important" people I mentioned . You and me are just normal folks who take whatever they are served.

Behram Sir, You should have been there are JT-5A to see how Header's Storm ran circles around the every 4X4. It even did one of the obstacles without acceleration input. Damn we didn't capture it on Video

Dear Vinod, I think Thar is already going to be positioned to the 4WD touring market in its present avatar, so that makes either the Thar or Storm 4WD redundant
