"arao" hope I had seen this pic for the placement of the on/off switch, perfect place... can't say that for mine, but pics attached...not so bad either, due to black on black dash.

the vehicle was parked close to other things, hence glowing in red, orange!

"prince0407 & Dr. Raghav"
see pic from "arao" - that seems to be an ideal location for the switch, if you intend to install it.

So, finally got the car delivered on 14th June - W11 Pearl White for my wife from Anant Cars, Marathalli. Delivery experience was good as all formalities were done a day before and we just went to collect the car. Nasir (our Sales Expert) was extremely helpful in sorting out the process. This is my first Mahindra so in a way I was expecting niggles but everything went fine.

I had ordered few accessories from m2all but didn't get anything as Anant Cars didn't have any with them. I raised it to managingdirector@mahindra.com and also tweeted to @anandmahindra and got a call in half an hour that they will be organising for the accessories and get it installed. I was most keen on the front parking sensors as my wife struggles with the judgment while taking the car out from the basement ramp.

I took insurance from Tata AIG Sapphire Plus with RTI which helped me save some money on dealer provided quote.

A big let down was that my car came shod with Apollo Aptera and driving 200 kms on a country road made me change them. They are noisy and offer very little braking feedback. Besides, the car was pulling towards left (an alignment issue). I first thought to raise a complaint but that would have meant taking the car for service and also being on phone with customer care. I decided to swap the tyres with Michelin Primacy SUV tyres today and they are brilliant - got Paddock Club membership with some Club Mahindra and other vouchers. And, after the alignment car drives straight.

All this while I was comparing it with my 3 series but then got a scolding from the missus that it's awful to compare and start enjoying the car! Hope to have a good time with this one.

I was told by the sales person at Sireesh that all W11s come with Bridgestone tyres - or does it only apply to W11(O)? A few of us have taken delivery of W11 recently, and it will be great to get their feedback.

Thanks

Anant Cars told that the cars come with either Bridgestone or Apollo. My colleague who took the car on 11th (April 18 made) got Bridgestones but I got Apollo. My car is June manufactured as per the VIN. Rather unpredictable but even I was under the impression that all W11 come with Bridgestones.

Our W11 (O) was manufactured in May and has Bridgestone tires. We did a PDI on Friday and will be taking possession after registration tomorrow.

I checked with my sales executive and he confirmed that W11(O) comes with Bridgestone as it's 235/60/18. My car is 235/65/17 and they offer either Apollo or Bridgestone. In my test drives, I had found that 18 inches offered harsher ride as compared to 17 so I went with 17 inch wheels and I also prefer the aluminium/silverish look of the wheel as compared to black. What I saved, spent in getting Michelins.

All the best for your car! Happy motoring.

I took delivery on May 25th of W11(O) manual variant and it came with Apollo tyres. 18" is the rim size I have. Checked with SA and he said these tyres are purely on the lot being released, the earlier lots had Bridgestones. Mine have Apollo's and he said some could even have MRFs from what he has heard.
