Hi all finally booked a purple W8 XUV pre facelift model. Thanks to T-BHP and all the ownership threads which helped me a lot in deciding on the cheetah. The following are the accessories I am planning for
1. Side steps
2. Rear guard
3. Door beading
4. Reverse camera
5. Rubber floor mats.
Existing owners please suggest other necessary accessories that I need to buy. And moreover the SA is asking me to go for the full mat. Is it really necessary?

Hi smrtdvl, congrats. How much discount did you manage to get?
I am also looking to buy xuv and waiting for face-lift. For the past 3-4 months or so have been hooked to all ownership threads and this thread.

Hi,

They must be suggesting for floor lamination. Better to get the entire floor laminated. Don't go for transparent lamination but the other opaque one. The cost difference is only Rs. 1000/-. I got my floor laminated and it cost me Rs. 6000/- approx. Rubber floor mats should be complementary from the dealer.

Cheers!

Hey thanks am getting a cash discount of Rs.19500 along with Side Steps, rear guard, door beading and camera as free accessories but the offers are not the same everywhere so you can squeeze more.

Thanks Amyth78. Am not sure whether its lamination because it is altogether a complete mat that runs to the length of the vehicle but let me check with my SA. I am getting other free accessories so skipped the mat. Will get it from outside.

Congrats on your new buy.

Can you quote the prices of these accessories. As most of these may not be directly from Mahindra you may find them cheaper outside. This happened to me when I bought mine about 3 year back.

Took delivery of the XUV 500 yesterday. It's an Opulent Purple W8 FWD. Once again, thanks to all the information shared on this forum which helped me finalise the purchase. Overall, the purchase & delivery process was smooth. Definitely better than my last purchase which was a Maruti. I was at the dealership for the delivery around 11:30 AM and drove out by 1:30 PM.

Time spent at dealership included final signatures on few documents, a short key handing over ceremony and a detailed explanation of almost every feature in the car. I was surprised to see the details with which the features were explained. Interesting thing was that the sales person even made it a point to list down many of the things "perceived" as niggles by new owners. One such example being the rear A/C button not turning on if the vents are closed at the rear.

Opted for the below accessories

1. Rear Guard
2. Night Vision Parking Camera
3. Classy Foot Step
4. Contoured Body Guards
5. Roof Carrier
6. Dramatic Grille Cover
7. Door Handle Rims
8. Rain Visors
9. Rubber Floor Mats
10. Teflon coating
11. Anti-rusting under coating

Had driven about 120 km since yesterday and the experience is awesome. Would share more details and my experience in a different ownership thread.

What is the expected cost of 20K servicing? The SC at Vizag quoted me around 10 K and I was quite surprised. I thought that 40K servicing was the priciest of them all.

Could some one share their 20 K servicing bill here?

Dhanush, 10K Rs is on the higher side.
I paid 5917 Rs a year back for the 20K service.
Engine Oil ~1500 Rs
Fuel filter ~ 1300 Rs
Gear Oil ~1100 Rs
are the main expenses.
Labour is free.

I had paid 1000Rs for cabin filter just a few days earlier. So those were not replaced again during 20K. I also get alignment/balancing done from outside and had opted out of that at the service center. So another 1000Rs for that.

Even including those 2 items, it would have been ~8000 Rs.

I paid ₹ 6,603 for the 20 k servicing at India Garage, Guindy, Chennai.



Please tell them specifically that you were not interested in engine-bay polishing, paint-protection, underbody anti-corrosive treatment, etc. in advance.

Congratulations PADAS Wish you happy munching miles with the cheetah!!

Can you share some information like which showroom you bought at and who was the sales executive. Since I am almost deciding on the W6 model with limited stocks available, I don't want to create a mishap out of it and get the vehicle. I want to have a smooth interaction and it will be really helpful if you share the information.

And out of the accessories listed, have you bought all of them or some of them were offered as freebies??

I converted all the freebies offered in to cash discounts and after making a final deal on ex-showroom price, negotiated a deal on all the accessories listed above for 40k.

Hope the above information helps.

Even I am contemplating between Anant Cars, Mysore Road and Sireesh Auto, Hosur Road. India Garage is out as they don't have any stocks left of W6.

I am interacting with Mr. Vinay from Anant Cars, Mysore Road and Mr. Praveen from Sireesh Auto.

Today I will be visiting there stock yard and see how many units are available and what are the color options available.

Will keep you guys updated.

1. Side steps are a good buy at 10500, but there is one BMW X5 Look alike available in the market for the same price. The fit looked neat, when I saw the same on an accessory shop in Cochin.
Rest all looks the same, as I never bought these except for the floor mat i Use 3D washable and the reverse cam, I got them for 3500 from KTC in Kochi.
