As far as what I have gathered from the forum and reviews, the 110 PS version has a heavier clutch in comparison to the 85 PS one. So I guess this is available only for the 110 PS cars.

Congratulations!
Your Duster looks brilliant. I like the carbon fiber finish given to front grill and rear badge.
Cool looking alloys too.

Could you please share the details of the fog lamps (model + cost) and if possible the details of installation process.
A photograph of the switch for these lamps would be helpful too.

Cracker!! Would have loved a macho 5 spoke alloys though! But this is good. Please stay away from police checking. Am sure, you will be Rishiraj's favorite with those Hellas!

Nice pics. The wet look is just too good. You might want to consider getting chrome door handle covers to match that shine

French carmaker Renault has announced that it has sold more than one lakh units of the Duster SUV in India since its launch in July 2012 - a period of less than two years.

To celebrate the milestone, the company has introduced a special edition of the SUV called the 1 Lakh Limited Edition. It has been priced at Rs. 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom, all-India) and will be available in limited numbers from June 2014.

Amazing car valapad.
That black duster is looking simply killer and with those hella it gives the look of serious rally car and amazing set of alloys which matches the profile of the car.
But I am pretty sure that maintenance of that black color would be a cumbersome task.

Does anyone have any details about this offer? Today's timesofindia (Bangalore edition) had an ad for this on the last page. Looks like the RXL plus 85 Bhp model is being offered as Limited edition @ 9.99 L ex-showroom. Can anyone confirm? Is it not a good deal? Please share any information you may have on this.

Good news for aspiring Duster owners! Based on the recent reports of Limited Adventure edition launch etc. I went to the Trident showroom yesterday and inquired about the vehicle. Saw the 85 bhp Adventure - looks cool in green...though when I saw it was parked in the garage in the shade and didn't looks very different from the Woodland brown parked next to it. The front fog lamps, smokey headlamps etc look cool...I told the advisor I would think about it and came back.
Just received a call from the dealer that they will give Insurance free on this model (85 bhp Adventure) which reduces on road Bangalore price from 11.11 lakhs to 10.77 which I think is a good deal.
Further, for RXL+ model they have reduced base price to 9.99 lakhs in order to fit in sub 10 lakhs tax slab. With this 30k (price) and 30k(tax)= 60k reduction, the RXL+ model now becomes cheaper on road by 60k. Should the new budget provide some reprieve, expect more cuts soon. However, Renault says this offer is only for June while budget is due in July so its a gamble.

It has come out really good along with the detailing. I was also looking for the Hellas, but refrained from it due to frequent checkings, any idea what is the current situation? I am planning for LED bars. BTW, how much is the rear spoiler costs and from where did you buy?

The Limited edition is basically the RXL Plus version (with some graphics), whose price has been rolled back below 10L, to save on road tax as well. Easily translates to about 60-80K savings.

To summarise the RXL Plus is RXL (O) pack (the top-end 85) minus Alloys, Media Navigation and reverse parking sensors.
