Manoj, just noticed that the thread title says XUV-500. IMO, unless it is intentional, like 500 reasons to buy XUV, better get it edited to its correct name XUV500

@Mannubhai congratulations on the black mamba . Wishing you many KM's of happy and safe motoring. Black is indeed the best color for XUV5OO , which hides the overdone whiskers .

Or should it be XUV5OO? With an O and not 0 [zero]

The only thing I was concerned about this beauty is the initial niggles. Will keep a close watch on this thread. Please keep it updated mannubhai.

Is the relationship manager the same person with whom dealt with while booking (SA) or was he assigned to you when you took the delivery?

Hearty congratulations on your Mamba. It surely looks rocking in black. Wish you many more happy miles with the beast!!

Please post more pictures of the beauty. And do keep us updated of your initial driving impressions and the in city driving dynamics.

And please do something about those wheels. Definitely need an upgrade to a better ones to give it a smashing look.

Drive safe.

It's infact XUV 500 [with zeros], but pronounced as 5 Double Ohh [Bond style]

All the XUV 500 threads are building pages extremely quick. And I assume mannubhai is under serious stress; probably more than what he was going thru while booking / taking delivery of his Mamba!

I was looking at the opening pic and feel the car is NOT very big! Is it the stance and the bonnet which gives the feel ? How different or taller will the seating position compared to tall boy cars?

PS:: Is there a way we could get some comparo pics shot with XUV 500 and some other cars side by side?

Congratulation mannubhai, great buy and color choice. Black suits XUV, I hated those whiskers in the snaps but was bowled over when I saw the black beast. Excellent color, just keep that car wax handy

Congrats Mannubhai on the new purchase. Have exciting and safe drive with new Mamba (XUV 500).

Starting to see a lot of XUVs on road in chennai, (but been seeing them for more than a year now). Exceelent product at an enviable price point.

Congratulations Manoj. The XUV in black is a 'Killer'. Any freebies or corporate offers, on this purchase?

What other interior option do you get, with the Black colour, apart from beige (its called walnut interiors?).

Wish you miles of happiness and please post more pictures. That's the only treat we can expect from you.
