Raj, the scorpio is an excellent well engineered machine. My 2004 spec Scorpio has done a little over 80,000 kms, and only very recently have i realised the deeper virtues of the jeep. The seats may not be the most comfortable, but that is the only disappointment, besides maybe the frequent brake pad changes and crap aircon vents (mine is a 2004 spec with the older vents).

Congratulations on your new ride.
One thing though, those graphics on the rear and side are aftermarket right, have been seeing them a bit too often on the scorpios lately.

manson.

The brochure will also say, specs are likely to change without prior notice and that accessories and parts shown in the pictures are only indicative. (or something to that effect)

Nothing much you can do about it now. Just enjoy it as it is. Looks pretty good.

[quote=raj_5004;849739]@ happywheels: the on-road price in mumbai is 11,68,800/-. initially they offered a discount of only 8000/- and some free accessories like carpet lamination and scuff plates. but we insisted that we dont want free accessories and instead give us a better discount. so they agreed on 10,000/-.


11.5+ lakhs vehiche don't come with SRS AirBags?
Atleast i couldn't locate one in the photos. Correct me if I am wrong.

no buddy, the ugly stickers are standard fitment and is the only thing i hate in my car. but i have been receiving praises from my neighbours that the stickers on the white colour makes the car look sexy!

ATleast you should write to Mahindra and ask them to clarify about it....

the sound quality is really bad with that stock HU, just connect & listen to any other HU (even a sony HU would sound much better than that stock HU) and you wont even look back at the stock one.

Congrats on the new buy dude. Wasn't the graphics on the front portion o the car? All the MHawks i've seen have it in the front. This is the first time i'm seeing it in the rear.

Also, you can change the alloys on this. The sensor can be transplanted to the new alloys, don't know excatly how, but have seen it being done on several scorpios here.
