Must say that though Mumbai folks are say that it was not upto the mark in some parameters but it is zillion times better than the horrible auto shows that get done in Bangalore.



Couldn't stop laughing. Where is the 4x4 track here? All this can be done in a Nano itself.

What was Mahindra smoking when they put up this 4x4 track
apart from the hill ramp there is nothing great in the 4x4 track..
I guess Mahindra learnt from cyrus's last years antics and instead of having to hang their heads in shame for a stuck scorpio they made a less challenging track

have a look at the pic of last years track.

Great coverage of the event there by Dippy. The JCB Diesel max is really fascinating. But all I want out of this whole collection is the Toy Monster Truck from the Autocar stall.

The Compact Truck Mahindra GIO was also on display. It is too compact a truck I should say. Though it looks like Gio is trying to make its mark. It is small but nonetheless it is a very commercially viable proposition.

Nice coverage Dippy!
We tried shifting in the Gio. The gear got stuck in 2nd.


OT:Even I saw you. I guess my brother met you along with raj_5004.

A mini show:

New models will wait for the Delhi show - so that's expected.

The Mahindra customizations seem value for money.

Jag beat the Lambo.

Yellow VRS has us drooling.

Well covered by TBHP teams as we see - perfect shots at perfect angles.

Makes some sense for those pitching for a LR vs merc vs BMW etc segment to see all the models and compare at the same site.

, 4th of January is the super car club run in Bombay. Two T-BHPIAN cars will be there.
Wow they even consider whether or not the vehicle is new or second or third hand?!! Must be deep verification process! They why is it that the showcase Z4? They should not even do that.
Hey thanks for the news. So 4th jan it is. Good to know there are two bhpians.

Mahindra Customisations does look good, they had done a good job with the scorpio & the Bolero and what they have done with the Xylo also looks very good, Dippy can you give us some more info on that.

Another pic of the show stopper.
This car really did it for me. It has taken the game to a different level. The comments I heard around the stand made me feel proud to be the Jaguar fan that I am.
