This post may be off topic but I want to share an intresting observation.

Yesterday I spent my Sunday moving around in rural Delhi with a friend as he was giving out invitations to friends and relatives for a function. We visited some six seven villages, what I noticed over there was that every SUV type vehical in the villages was either a Scorp or a Bolero. I came across one Endy and two Safaris as compared to over 30 Scorps and more then 15 Boleros.

Another intersting thing was that many people in villages have become property dealers and opened offices near the main roads and there was a Scorpio standing outside almost every office. It seems it is the favorite vehicals for the property dealers.

Anyways am not stirring up YET another entertainment with this

And whats mod got to do with making intelligent statements, i think most of us in TBHP has it, some make use of it without any "titles".

zappo, i really did not wanted to raise another issue, but it happened to me last week on my way to office, by the sound of the bang i really thought that it was going to make a bit hole, but in the end did turn out to be a slight scratch.
I think now on I will just make sure will not post something that will start another fire.

And babureddy, dude you are almost trying to burn the house down with your deliberate postings. What was that about a TT hitting your Safari and suffering a dent without causing much damage to your Safari and then your deliberate poking of others as to what would have happened to a Scorpio? You are not at all helping matters. You started this latest fire.

Got a confirmation that VLX is parked in my building parking bay a couple of minutes back by the dealer's driver.

I always wanted to buy a 4*4 and Safari has been the obvious choice. Did I mention that I had voted for Safari in this poll and I ll still vote for it. Head, Heart and all including wallet but the Finance partner ( Tata Capital and TM Finance )at Tata dealer has been giving a miss so many times as I wanted a company lease that I got fed up and bought Scorpio from the M&M dealer next door who I must say have been very prompt ( this car was there in stock so no waiting).

She is waiting at the my place and when I reach home after office in a few hours from now- hope to like it as much( a bird in hand is better than two in bush). Now perhaps this also may be a reason why we see more scorpio's than Safari( at least in my case) and I promise to you all that I won't drive rash and wont dare/ try to bully anyone !!

As far as 4*4 goes, trying to find a reasonably priced one and so far TL4X4 is still an option but the dealer is still slippery - last five calls today - each time I get an answer- sir , will call you in 10 minutes- am I being a pest?

What is it that you want mate? We do not want to issue an explicit gag order nor do we wish to close this thread. Please do not force the mods team to react.
sure mod. as is the policy of this forum, i have never tried to initiate a fight on this forum. i just put across my opinions and comments on the debate, which is irrespective of the general view. but when i see some personal pointers or accusations at me, i am bound to react (on humane levels!)
still, i wish to comply to all the rules of T-BHP. thank you.

Sorry to spoil your party but some of us are actually living this impossible dream.
Search for "Steeroid" on the forum and see his long term Safari ownership thread, enlighten and lighten yourself.

Chill, guys! I thought many of us had agreed to a truce in the guise of a Safari with a Scorpio engine under the hood!

If Tamilnadu politicians were to deliver the final verdict on this thread, the Scorpio would win hands down. And, as for the color, please make it either white or offwhite/cream for them.

Make that most politicians. No just TN. Exceptions would be our leaders from Bellary-Raichur area who prefer Endy's. Or Sharad Pawar who has for long had his Pajero.

i agree safari is not that tough but it is definetely not a car! 4WD safaris can do pretty much of off roading.
and the news that tamilnadu politicians have scorpios is new to me!

I've always wondered why there is a "Gun Ownership Thread" on Team BHP.

Now I know!

Looks like we have all exhausted our objective points of discussion.
