Hey! Thanks for sharing the links/info. Finally, i thought i would be able to update the maps however got stuck again! I couldn't find the MediaNav toolbox download for Mac. The site only lists the details for 'Windows'.

Any suggestions guys on how to circumvent this hurdle!! Thanks!

I updated the software but i don't see an update in map version. Could you please check and let me know what is the map version shown on your media nav.

Looks very good!!

Could you please share the details of how it was done?
How is the Neon tube being powered?

[Mods] Sorry for a new post, but the previous post is not a related one.

I have the Jump seat in my Duster. It is not suitable for adults. My kids love it though.

I found out a simple solution for lack of any marking on ac rotary knob. There is some orange marking ,but its hardly notable .
I have used red vinyl sticker and paper punch to cut small round red dots.

Adding pictures. The reference picture from official review.

Liked the idea. What about low lit conditions? Try a glow sticker or glow paint

Marking can be done using a small piece or a cut in a big piece.

Thanks for the link.I have used reflective sticker.I think white colour would have been better,instead of red.

The glow sticker will look white when there is light and turns green or emits greenlight during dark. Glow sticker is different than a reflective sticker(wont be visible in dark)

Thanx Aditya - but do you have any further news on the launch of the AWD/4WD versions of the Duster/Terrano ? As I'm sure you'll appreciate, in their current avatars, neither really deserves to be placed in the SUV category. For those of us who do a fair amount of touring round the country, having the AWD/4WD capability is a great morale booster on our roads. I had earlier thought of going in for the XUV AWD version, but recently, with the adverse reports about the XUV's LO pump, transmission and electronics issues, I am no longer sure.

I also find the roof rail a must ,it makes cleaning the top of the car easier-especially while wiping after a wash.

Has anybody tried shrouding the roof bars? That might be the correct solution for the wind noise.

I am thinking of essentially a clip on/ bolt on cover over the bar portion in sync with the front & rear design of the roof rail. Can/ should have removable cutouts for attaching cross barslike Thule.

I have seen FRP contraptions for the Temp traveller in the Guruvayoor area a long time back. basically the same idea but executed better.

It has smoked head lights ,full body claddings ,front armour with extra fog lamps and anthracite alloy wheels.I think alloy wheels not for RxE variant . Also you get the cool green colour shade in adventure edition.Looks better than normal duster ,in my opinion.

I had a look at this some time back, when I had been for my Duster's service. All cosmetic changes. And you pay hugely for it. Of all that the only good thing which I thought in my opinion is the cladding. Smoked headlamps were good no doubt. But not worth the price for me.
