reahmash for 30k more price, the 2.2 is surely worth it. I think you should go for the 2.2, beige interiors and better pick up, FE, NVH levels.

Launch Date stands at 8th october as per dealer here

FE has been vouched for by him as better than the 3 ltr engine. and all the other details also mentioned by raj stands true.

They are getting vehicles by sunday/monday for PDI to be TD vehicles. Distance places have already got them

Ex costing more than current EX by 30-40k.

Now the good thing for all the LX dicor owners here is that it will still continue in its avtar for some time. (so no massive depreciation)

Will test drive the EX 2.2 soon to see its worth

1.clutch soft - Great improvement
2.zippier than the 3.0 - Got to be its a 2.2, 140 bhp
3.gear shift to the first needed two attempts every time.felt tight and hard. - huh!!!, is it the same gearbox ??
4.aircon much better - Good improvement
5.top speed achieved 150kmph (ran out of road) - its a 2.2l
6.rear door rattles like hell. - Thought that has been rectified. Big dampner.
7.interiors have already been discussed.somehow the biege colour looks like its going to get dirty real soon. - True with all such colour schemes
8.wind shear noise. - Same as 3.0l, another dampner
9.engine NVH less for sure - attribute it to the 2.2l
10.in cabin rattles as bad.sorry. - Its becoming very evident and a big disappointment
11.the FE achieved by the test team here said 10.3km/l - Seems good enough

p.s:
rough day at work today.

All in all it seems "Khoda pahad nikli chuhiya" they have not been able to improve the long pending niggles and seems as if the replacement done is only for the engine. Overall the cabin rattles and noise is a big disappointment.

The TATA guys were jumping around saying that their FE now is 15 city and 19 Highway, the FE part also disappoints.

Exactly !! I am also very very curious to know this !! I was the first one to say that this was going to be there.

I am more worried about all those cabin noises. I am already getting demotivated from the 1st TD.

More importantly can someone also confirm if this engine has VGT ???

It seems we will have to confirm each and everything here from other members TD, till TATA updates its specifications on the website.
