Any idea if (and where) OWS would be available in the NCR?

About the Geos, just about completed 4k kms on them - grip levels are definitely better but I feel that they are definitely noisier than the Stones on certain types of surfaces.

Have you got the 60k service out of the way?

No clue, Suman. Why don't you send a PM to Sideways? I couldn't find a Delhi dealer here:

Yes, I find them noisier on concrete surfaces.

Yes, 60K service was done in March, need to schedule the 65K service now - most probably next week.

Oh yes, had forgotten that, sorry! Looks like I may be pre-poning my 60k one as well if all goes according to plan

This sure seems to be an interesting product, will try it procure it. Both cans needed for a 65 L fuel tank?

This is how the tyres looked this morning after some fun in the slush last night

January 2007 Tata Safari 3.0 DiCOR EX 4x4 Running Report-img108.jpg

Truck was dropped off for the 65K service in the morning - should get it back this evening.

Problems reported were:

1. No coolant in the reservoir - there was enough in the radiator for running
2. Front LHS low beam was not working
3. Front wheel alignment - vehicle was pulling to the left after P&P day

Turns out one of the clamps had fallen off - reason for coolant leakage.
The front LHS headlamp bulb was replaced - low beam filament had fused.
Alignment was fixed.
Service advisor also found that the alternator belt had lost a couple of treads - belt was replaced.

Geolandars are absolutely brilliant off the road.

Other updates:
1. One of the turbo hoses seems to have developed a leak. The turbo whistle is now LOUD. This is recent - before I took it off the road, however.
2. Front number plate almost fell off. It was hanging by one screw and finally came off a few minutes later.
3. Rear bumper housing for the camera - also disappeared somewhere.

By the way, 2 & 3 were caused in the middle of a stream / river and a forest trail.

Rumor has it that TATA reflectors give a 5 BHP increase. Is it true :-)

Thats called the tow-hook cover, the older TCIC's still have 2 holes on a bar for fixing the tow-hook under it, now its used for installing the camera, flexible design, i guess

Its usually stolen if you park outside, easy to take out, unless you clamp it, costs Rs57 as a spare.

the middle (red) reflectors, not a standard on the 3.0/2.2l Safari.
