Congrats on this great purchase pal,,,this is one true great SUV which has not had its share of respect and can put a Honda CRV to shame. Brilliant homework done and executed!!!!

Samurai, few informations needed:

1.What time sun rises there.
2.What time sun sets.
3.How's the clouds looking nowadays. White or gray.
4.What's the temp during the day.

Congrats! Car is looking smashing. We can plan our shooting soon. Let's talk this evening.

Congratulations Samurai.

Nice choice of Car , colour and interiors.

P.S. you seem to specialise in chosing very capable , no nonsense but unsung products e.g. Baleno, Olympus , and now Vitara

Samurai, congratulations on your new possession. The premium SUV's ( Tucson, CRV, Vitara etc) they all look awesome in white. Great choice of color. And lovely pictures from your oly, especially the side profile with the orangish grey sky is mind-blowing

Wow !! What a wonderful read - I felt I was almost there

Samurai - Congratulations on getting this really smart looing SUV. I was under the impression that you were about to buy a Safari 4x4 any day BUT never knew you would go for the GV.

But having said that the GV is simply a brilliant car !! I think it looks as good or in fact better than the CRV. I like the straight looks of the GV.

Your white colour looks stunning.

2 questions from me however - What was the OTR price ? ( 16 Lacs or so ), any cash discounts ?

And the most important question, I know a bit early - BUT ' average kya hai ? '

Oh boy, you are having some serious ideas, aren't you. Let me see how to get that info.

That's an interesting observation. I never start off like that, I always extensively explore the traditional/popular choices before looking at the unorthodox options. But I tend to go with the merits and how it matches my requirement, and sometimes I end up with an unusual choice. You can add my move away from Bangalore to the above list. Ok, that's enough OT.

Vkochar, it is too early to measure FE. The OTR is around there, it hurts to think about it. No discounts, just the free accessories I mentioned before.
