Dude u sure are new and frm ur questions it shows that u gotta learn loads ......... WELCOME TO T-BHP , we guarantee u that we will transform u into a Car Guru soon, right guys? Ok now to ur query...

1. Thats according to you if u wanna modify ur jeep. If i were u, i wud put my cash on performance moddin more than cosmetic. Am not sure if ur scorpio is turbocharged, if it isnt , get it turbocharged. Add a K&N air flter, free-flow exhausts and i donno if u will still have cash for Chippin ur engine.

2. the sporty or luxurious Interiors is also a personal taste so u gotta decide upon it brother.

3. A Lot of anything spoils the show. So "NO" over vinyl'in. Well i like the Scorpio as it is.... it luks gud, leave it as it is yaar.

4. Dude forget vinyls and GO for the alloys ASAP, brands... depends on how much money u can put in. If u are ready to put more, go for imported set of alloys, if no, stick with the locals. Go about many shops and check different alloys and pick the one that best suits ur liking. Dont give much priority for brands, ok?

5. If had 70k...... I wud go for the performance upgrades i mentioned above, and go for a swanky ICE with any leftover cash. But i bet that u will never have enuf cash coz we guys always...Dil Maange More!!!!

If u are so into cosmetic moddin, u cud add a scooped bonnet, and some nice fancy modded bumpers (I feel its a waste though!)

Decide wisely coz 70k is a big thing.....do tell us what u decide! All the best.

Sagar.

If you are looking for cosmetic changes, I will write a check to Autophyche for 70,000 and ask him to do whatever he can to my ride for that money.

hey ok if u dont wanna do performance mods, just my options. Ok so u into cosmetic. Hmm...gud thing first go for alloys, next interiors, select ur taste, sporty or luxurious, i think black leather wud be cool but depends on the colour of ur jeep. Ok so no ICE too. Bonnet Scoop, ok. coming to vinyls.... am not sure how it cud look on a scorpio never seen any, actually never seen any jeep ever with vinyls frankly. Am not talking about those dirty vinyls on TATA Sumos with that splashing water or tiger jumping etc. Why dont u try photoshopping and put all ur ideas and see if it suits ur jeep. Yes a little vinyls might do the work but as u said earlier dont fill up with vinyls. U cud put in Xenon while headlights.... and damn! Cant think of anything else. I think the scorpio looks very neat and i donno what else cud u think of moddin?



Hey i just remembered....there was a yellow Scorpio, sports edition i guess which was exhibited by Mahindra at the AutoExpo. I lost the links and pics, u cud have a look at it, it had black vinyl stripes. gelled well. Ill try to get those links.

Hey buddy FYI scorpio was alwayas turbocharged. Not a blunder but still just after boasting of about our knowledge or being car gurus to a newbie it was not a very knowledge boasting statement.
Just a corrections. No offence intended.

Yea man i know that the FYI Scorpio is turbocharged, but the guy here never mentioned the model of his scorpio!!!! So thats y i mentioned, "Am not sure if ur scorpio is turbocharged, if it isnt , get it turbocharged"....and besides am not boasting, am givin my opinions and suggestions frm my side. What boastng actually means going ga ga about ur ride or acting like a know-all, which i never did. I just suggested what i know, and i dont find anything wrong in that.

Booked Scorpio VLX - Please suggest a new Audio system package

i have just booked a Scorpio VLX which comes with a Music system with controls on the steering . The issue now is that if we change the headset , we can't use the controls on the steering well . Has any one changed just the speakers in this system and have had any test results ?
