nice write-up bro. Your posts always had such real facts.

And about that accident you told, not only Merc there was a Honda city, zen also.

I love the concept of the Stinger posted, except the tail lamps which is really an eye sore.

Actually it is modded, but my Mahindra Customisation. They way this works is that you buy a brand new Bolero/Major/Scorpio and then give it to Mahindra customization folks in Mumbai. It doesn't come from the Mahindra Factory like this.

The rims and bumpers are available from Skoda India itself. AFAIK it was available since 2008 June or earlier.

Skoda offers trading in the stock bumpers and alloys for these ones.I was offered the alloys for 7K per piece after exchange of stock alloys.

I think Nikhil_V12 was offered a better price.
