My heartiest congratulations Mannubhai!!!! You've got a very very good deal there!!!The beast looks menacing and nothing like what we've seen in that price range!!!
My only suggestion(a very minute one at that) is that you should upgrade to alloys.The plastic caps on the steel wheels just rob a bit of that aggressive stance of the beast!!

Do post your long term review,service experiences and the niggles (if any!!!)

Enjoy!!!!

Congrats Manu bhai for your new XUV. It does look smashing in black. Wow its a great buy.

Looking forward to hear more from you. How does it feel in the city bumper to bumper traffic? Does the clutch feel heavy in such conditions? Also i have heard that the brakes do not have the punch, what are your observations?

Congrats Mannubhai, your car looks absolutely amazing and a very wise choice of color. I have had my reservations about the way the XUV5OO looks, but your car looks simply fantastic.

Waiting for more interior+exterior pics and a looong review.

Congratulations once again and Happy Driving.

Just one post of ownership start of the thread and four pages of wishes. Shows the amount of interest folks have on this car. Congratulations on a wonderful car. Will wait for more pictures and comments from you.

Many Congratulations Mannubhai, i remember you were looking to buy a safari, good choice in going for the Xuv considering the level of equipment and more modern design. Calls for a party and a drive

Mannubhai is missing from action, i guess the XUV is keeping him busy

Congrats the XUV looks great, hope you have millions of niggle free miles on it. This would have been my next vehicle but I purchased a Scorpio VLX AT a few months back so maybe next time.

Hi Mannubhai!

Congrats on being the first to get the delivery and to start the first ownership thread on TBHP! Your feedback and opinions will certainly influence a lot of people and we are all eagerly looking forward to your driving experiences! We have also booked ours on Oct 4th, but the delivery date given is mid-Feb 2012!
Thanks for sharing.

Regards,
Behemoth

Mannubhai, Congrats on being the first owner of the XUV, at least on TBHP.

Looks like a lethal monster.

Do post many pics of the beast. Interiors, exteriors et al.

. That is possible the best way to describe the available luggage space, with all seats up.

Wish you many happy miles. Drive safe.

EDIT: Behemoth, what booked one already? So, now its the Civic, the Yeti and shortly this monster that would occupy your garage. Man, what an envious garage you've got!

Black Mamba is the deadliest poisonous and The Fastest Snake in the World, african habitant, but it is Black because of its inners of mouth is Black...waw what a name to choose and rightly so. This Beast looking more like a Black Panther (Bagheera - The Jungle Book)

Congrats Manoj. The Beast looks Majestic in Black. The Red looks good on road too as I saw one a couple days earlier, looks attractive but not as Majestic as Black. Nice choice.

Wish you Happy Speedy but Safe Miles.
