Default Modifications to Mahindra Xylo

As suggested by a fellow BHPian mooza, I am starting this new thread. The xylo has a potential to be a great vehicle, provided mahindra wakes up and modifies the looks & also the betters the quality of plastic used inside the vehicle. Here are a few mild modifications that I did to my Xylo & feel that this has actually helped in bettering the looks of the vehicle. Would love to see much more of such modifications by fellow BHPians. Also would like to know if anybody knows about someone in Mumbai who can help in changing the door handles on the inside of the vehicle, as the ones provided by the company are just horrible .

She looks great I posted pics of photo-shoped Xlyo in pre launch thread with a front lip which would complete the incomplete look she needs a front lip/spoiler badly What you have done with the rear does reduce the said incompleteness but a front lip will do wonders trust me

Its only the front that needs some extra care.
Other than that a simple kit would make the car look WOW!

Get some wider rubber and a nice set of alloys. Otherwise your Xylo looks awesome without any additions. I did prefer it to keep it looking subtle and not get too loud.

Hey it looks great.

Aesthetically done I must admit. Though I have my reservations about the white color.

The seat covers look great. IMHO the rear spoiler has to go. It doesn't gell with the car.

@bimal - this modification to the xylo makes it look much better than the stock. Can you tell us for how much did u get this thing done? IMO - the xylo looks much better with the spoiler than it looks without it. The ski racks too, dont look too good.

Well, we have picked up a pre-facelifted Xylo a few weeks back (my wife traded in her i-10 to have a bigger vehicle to cart her kids and friends around).

She is personally happy with the looks of the earlier Xylo, so no worries.

But having got my hands on this Java Brown colored beast, I could not resist trying out a few experiments on the (in)famous grill, yesterday evening.


Our Xylo in its original avatar :

I always felt that a small mod to the grill, on the lines of extending the buck tooth sideways, would make a world of a difference.

So I tried this temporary job, with some Aluminium packaging foils


Sorry about the poor pic qualities, I am not a pro !

I need help on realising the chrome work, if I decide to push this further (extending the walrus tooth sideways, that is).

Maybe folks could tell me a good place to get this chrome work done to make the mod permanent.

I feel that the results with the chrome work would be even more better than what I achieved with the temporarily cellophaned Aluminium foils !

Cheers and thanks in advance
