Can someone tell me the correct cold tyre pressures? The manual says 30 front and 35 rear. I want to make sure this is optimum.
From Personal Experience -

Upto 3 People in the Car - 30 PSI All round, Will improve Ride Quality

Fully Laden - 30 PSI Front and 35 Rear - As suggested by TATA

1. Contact Psycho - the work he did on my Dicor's suspension seems to have taken off all the vagueness from the steering. It is precise now.

2. Quoting Psycho - "Dont bl**dy drive the *(@*($! truck like a car. SUVs are NOT meant to take tight winding turns at high speed."

Hey congrats on your new buy!

Isn't it 32 front & 35 rear? Have I been keeping incorrect pressure in front ?

Thank you!
The manual says 30 front and 35 rear unladen
32 front and 35 rear fully laden.
Have seen the manuals recommend 26 all round for the Indigo / Marina which is low in my opinion. And therefore the question.

fyi in short EX has body colured bumbers and cladding, whereas the LX doesn't...
however this doesn't mean that this is the only difference but this is one of the prominent ones...
for more info visit TATA Motors - Safari DICOR

I have NO idea. I was out of the country when c3pO took the bus to Psycho's. I'm interested only in the result, not the method.

And anyway, magicians never tell.

Default Difference between LX and EX

When I purchased this couple of months ago. The following differences stick to mind:

a) Roof mounted AC
b) Single CD player with 4 speakers
c) Front and rear fog lamps
d) Rear demister
e) height adjuster in the driver seat
f) Keyless Entry with Immobilizer
g) Analog Clock
h) GunMetal Finish on console


EX variant does not come with body colored bumpers. This is available only in the VX variant, or it was till 2.5 months ago. Seeing the differences, I did not go for the EX and got the LX instead. Will post a review and first service experience soon.

Take care.

What is the difference from stock? i:e where do you find the improvement? Can you shed some light from your driving experience.

You are absolutely correct, still is available as standard only on the VX......a lot of people get them painted on their own though.
