Any clue as to the cost implication of the HUD from Mahindra?

Thank you Ravi Sir, by the way - I'm getting my Cheetah tomorrow evening, super-duper excited! Any thing more to be mindful of while taking delivery, of course over and above the exhaustive PDI list? Any additional pointers, if any would be greatly appreciated, thank you again.

See that your name, address, contact details, VIN and engine number of your Cheetah are correctly mentioned in all the documents.

Oh Ok - my Bad -

When I was coming back from Seekuparai view point, I saw someone like you, with a camera and riding on a thunderbird .

I was sure, it wasn't you, but just wanted to confirm. Anyway, he wasn't wearing a helmet.

Hi Ravi Sir,
I am a new member of the team-bhp family and love this forum for the camardiere and knowledge the group members share. This is my first post ever, this first post had to be on the most inspirational and passionate thread i have read here till day. You define your Purple Cheetah and you actually 'live young live free'.

I was considering XUV 500 and you just refuelled that desire to a new level. Thanks for detailed reviews and for being an inspiration. Keep (s)miling.

Came back after a test drive at Synergy Motors, Safdarjung enclave in New Delhi, loved the ride and the vehicle. I think i will close the deal pretty soon. Will update the experience. Also by chance witnessed the TUV launch at the showroom, quite a looker it is.

This trip is the result of r&d since 3 months. The routes are finalized and accommodation reserved from start to finish. Live updates are better than the trailers.

Thanks, Sunay. All the good wishes are badly required.

P.Cheetah landed at Nagpur hotel at 10:30 am today, much ahead of schedule. So, we drove to the nearby Haldiram's, had sumptuous lunch and checked in at 12 noon.
