The image in the following post shows ALL the prerequisites for the start-stop to work:

You are indeed right. There is a 2kmph speed threshold which should have been reached at least once in the current ignition cycle for the start-stop to work .

You maybe right, but I'm personally averse to after market products. I prefer to buy whatever accessories in original form from the manufacturer.

I know i maybe wasting money, but thats my personal call. Further, integrity will also help with resale value.

This is true until actually someone looks at the valve by removing tyre. The valves from inside have a small unit that holds battery and RFID transmitter along with temp and pressure sensors. That entire assembly unless stuck onto the alloy from inside, you can move to another one without issue. About how it is done in new XUV, we can't really tell unless its opened and checked.

I can imagine sales person not knowing this to last minute detail but I smell some ignorance in there. I don't think that engineers would do such rigid design that in case if the valve is broken/ gone bad for whatever reason, you would need to replace entire alloy! And for the very same reason, vice-versa.

There would be some hard bonding must be done - in your infotainment unit, it must specify which wheel has got which sensor. When you rotate tyres/ change for flat etc, the infotainment unit captures it exactly. That means the pairing of valves and tyres is reflected into the unit. So if you change the pairing, someone having admin access/ secret codes kinda magic needs to update that pairing. Too technical for the ordinary users. May be salesman just made up the reason.

Again knowing this thing from my aftermarket thing in a car that is not Mahindra, I am just adding information as I am thinking and hoping that I will buy the XUV and figure this out

Also anyone looking to buy the new age xuv get the insurance from outside and you can save upto 40k !

Edit : Thank you mods for rotating the pictures.

Will probably be something like this (Garmin launches Head-Up Display for Rs. 15,000)

But given the pricing, probably less functional.

Logically what you are saying is absolutely correct. No designer would design the valve+sensors in such a way that it can not be taken off. Having said that, since its a tubeless tyre, in order to avoid air leaking from the valve area, the valve (& the sensor) must have been bonded with the alloy in some way.

What I have said about "it can not be removed and shifted to another design alloy" is exactly what I have heard from the service personnel. This is not about 'aftermarket' alloys. I remember reading about people who have reported the same thing about having to lose TPMS when stock alloys are replaced with 'official accessories' alloys.

Most likely it would involve some 'jugaad' that the service-center people are unwilling to do.

Here's a pic of the valve+sensor assembly.

Personally I wouldn't do a mod as drastic as sunroof from outside. I have seen small holes in the body to put some screws for some fitment cause issues like water leakage inside cabin and impacting electricals etc. Imagine the complications that a leaking roof can cause. They may give warranty on the roof but what about the damage that it would cause to the car as a result of the leakage.

Yeah its just for 4560 rs, will try to get some more information regarding it, would be a cool add on to have though.

Also is the pricing for most of the items seems to be fair this time around? Usually the pricing for the accessories from the dealers are quite high.

I genuinely doubt whether many of these are 'official' accessories. Most likely the dealer is selling standard after-market stuff as accessories.

Yes most of them are aftermarket.

Also no type of tints provided, has to be because its illegal now, 4 pcs of magetic curtain for 1450 seems to be good though.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Did anyone notice that the official XUV site gives an error when you try to download the accessories brochure? Its been the same from the day the facelift was launched. 5 days should have been enough for them to notice and fix it. But then, its Mahindras.

I doubt if the magnetic shades provided by the companies are legal either? It defies the very purpose of having this law. Still they are selling it as an official accessory . Strange!!

This is not an M&M official accessory. Its just offered by the dealer, that's all.

EDIT: Just saw Prash22's message. Looks like the headsup display as well as the magnetic shades are indeed offered as official accessories. I stand corrected.

Yes saw the link, it seems the mahindra dealers too aren't still aware about all the details.
