Default Custom Seat cover for white Duster

Note : More pictures and info in my ownership thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post3541274

Custom designed seat cover done at Imperial Leathers as part of my the interior upgrade based on a theme, finalised the Tangerine - Dark Brown - Black color pattern (inspired by the 2014 Land Rover LWB) but with custom stitch pattern.

If you guys like the design, the trace patterns are available with them. You can choose any color pattern, better would be a medium - dark color than a light-dark combo. Also we have made the trace pattern for the OEM steering cover.

Few snaps taken using my mobile:

I would advise 30ps for Kerala roads, or else the drive could get a little bumpy. Mileage would improve a bit at a higher PSI though and the steering to would get a bit lighter.

This pricing is bound to create some excitement out there
Good for those who delayed bookings...

The final decision to be made in next few days after TD of 110ps. Curious to see the power difference between the two. Lot of owners are quite satisfied with 85ps power delivery but at the same time some have also mentioned the absolute lack of top end performance.
I think my dealer(Renault ghaziabad) is misguiding me... He's saying the RXL(plus) was an anniversary version and is now stopped /no more available . So the choice is only between RXL and RXL(opt-NAV)....,.
And that is a no brainer...

I am afraid your dealer may be right. The dealer at Kochi also mentioned the non availability of RXL Plus in stock and the possibility of company stopping this version. This would put my plans in serious trouble as I don't really want to go for 85 RXL (opt-Nav) which is costlier than 110 RXL onroad :(

Yeah..
And most of us do really want to have our own choice of Alloys and Navigation (+_ rear sensors) . So the RXL plus was a really really good choice...

Any way of knowing whether what the dealer is saying is true?

May be someone on the forum can update the truth.

Earlier I suspected that the dealer is trying to push me to by RXL (O) as they have all colors of this version in stock. But you have got a similar update from another part of the country which indicates that the dealer may be right :(

I am pissed off at the AWD offering. Why could they not have released it a year ago?

Yes they could have introduced it at launch itself considering that they were already manufacturing it for the UK market.

Or at least introduced the Olive colour. Looks nice on the Duster.

You can check at Renault Azadpur. They will get UP registration done and are not very far from ghaziabad. They are offering me immediate delivery of most of the colours of the RXL Opt variant in 85 PS. The only problem is looks like I will prefer the terrano to the duster but that's just a personal choice.

Update: Booked 85ps RXL (plus). Dealer called me on Friday evening to inform about last minute cancellation by another customer and one vehicle was available for immediate delivery provided I pay full amount within 2 days. Paid the full amount today and registration scheduled for tomorrow. Delivery will be either tomorrow evening or on Saturday
