If anybody installed a CarryBoy Roof_Carrier or 3D_Maxpider_Roof_Bag on their XUV, could you share the feedback and pics of the same.

for installing the cross bars, is there any specific locations on the roof rails and how is the crossbar fitment area gets covered, if one is going for after market one? (see pic below)

As Twiny mentioned, it is updated on Mahindra XUV official website. IMO dealers are waiting for the current stocks to be sold and for newer stocks the price would be applicable.

Yes, this is what the dealer I spoke to today said as well.

I was about to plonk for the W8 today until someone directed me to this link:

http://www.motorbeam.com/2014/01/08/...elift-in-2015/

Now I'm in 2 minds again. Wait for the facelift or just pick up the perfectly good car the dealer has on stock? And March 2015 is only 4 months away! Does anyone know if there is really a facelift coming, or is this just hot air?

There are many sources which say this, IMO they will just launch an automatic variant in March 2015 with very minor change in features for existing models. I don't think they will give a major face-lift to the cheetah and make it look like a cat

I feel December would be the right time to buy this car as we can expect more discounts during year end and it would be a real VFM I might book one during Christmas/New Year. Also I wish if Mahindra would give Artic Blue Color for W6 variant.

The manager at TVS cochin said that there will be a 5 seat version coming soon, but no facelift. He was very sure, but I am not sure how true that is.

Took delivery of W6 yesterday from Sireesh Auto, Bangalore. OTR came to 14.4L. Offer included free insurance(24k), 10k corp discount and some free accessories(idol, perfume, mats, rain visors and roof carrier). Not sure if it is a good deal (I am not at all good at bargaining)

Booked on 27th and got the vehicle registered on Nov 3rd (Nov 1st being holiday) and the SBI loan also processed in between. (Relieved to get before the price hike.)

The vehicle is 13/10/14 manufactured (based on the sticker on the right ORVM).

The free mats given were the black ones with red borders. Surprisingly it does not come for the 3rd row and the sales guy confirmed the same. Is it so?

Thanks to everyone on this thread who influenced my buying process

Congrats Bejoy on your new car.

The Black Rubber mat Mahindra provides, are for the first and second row only.
How much is the OEM Roof Carrier cost otherwise?

Guys need your opinion. Inspired by the AWD threads, I am planning to book XUV 5oo AWD Purple colour in Bangalore. Based on the negotiations I am being offered 17.14 Lakhs + Insurance for the vehicle (to be done by me). Insurance i need to take from office since it is company lease. I have also asked for accessories such as Floor Mat ( listed in Mahindra Accessories ) + Reverse Camera and Roof Carrier (not yet confirmed by dealer).

For my existing car Punto 2009 model (top end diesel model) which has run 72k KM they are offering 3.45 lakhs. Is this a good deal or should i be bargaining for more.

For Punto that is a good price offered. 17.14 is the negotiated price,what was the original price? I think for AWD you should get around 1 lakh off. Hope he is not adjusting the discount against the Punto buyback. In which case it is better to sell off Punto in the open market. I got 4.5 for my 2011 swift vdi + 50 k off + 10k off on insurance on W6.
