Check with the local Mahindra dealer, I know they allowed 2WD before considering 99% of scorpios are 2WD.

I was trying to get the team BHP sticker online for my jeep. But there seems to be a problem and the shopping cart reports error. I use Firefox for browsing
but IE does not show anything in the shopping cart.

here is the error

We're sorry, but there was an error in your form data! Please specify a valid value for the tax .
Please press the Back button on your browser to correct the error.


Anybody else facing the same problem?
I am thinking of making the same kind of sticker at the local sticker shop if the shopping cart does not work.

Its kinda funny when people mistake your jeep for a cops jeep and start acting sulky when you pass by.. I AM LOVING IT! hahahhaha
Actually I dont think its off topics its about the very essence of the MM540.

ok!! Now here is the first pic of the jeep I could take today. I am yet to remove all the names that are on the windshield. Check it out.
Also the rear right tyre went flat today so I had to put the spare one which is not NDMS. Also What do you guys think about the colour? I am thinking of making it completely black or white, Bythe way its a "2K company paint" on the MM.

Here is the interior of the jeep. Those are supposed to be gypsy bucket seat. Thats what the owner said. Also check out the handles dropping down from th e top for the rear side passengers to hang on! This was a practical family jeep for the owner! NOT ANY MORE!

very nice find.

the paintwork is good.
tyres need to be changed before rains/monsoon.
interiors are well taken care of.

ok, now dont rush to change things and start modifications...do a good recce of what you want to get done on the jeep.

ask for advice on the forum....plenty of jeepers here to give you quality advice.

safe driving dude!

Thanks Pram!
Those are new NDMS tires on it! The back one went flat today as a big nail somehow made its way through the thick NDSM! I am anyways gonna put these tires on the estate jeep as I have already placed orders for new alloys and Tires! Do you think the front seats are OK? Or do i need to put those Scorpio kinda front bucket seats? They are very comfortable though!

Here is the pic of my estate terrain in chikmaglur, I couldn't click a lot of snaps as I was the only one driving and the only one clicking snaps. Of course these look like a few easy tracks. The rest of the most difficult tracks, I was busy trying to maneuver the jeep! Hope this helps the explanation I had provided earlier.

stick to the current set of front seats. in a jeep, the seats are meant to be comfortable as you wont be driving fast, just going through rough terrain.

so keep the seats.
