An open question to all who might have experienced it. Does Storme being a RWD also mean that it will have loose front in surfaces like snow. Hence for all the forum members who are looking to be adventurous, the VX 4x4 becomes a default.

I remember having tried to help my friends BMW Z4 out of the snow. The only thing that car could do is change it's nose end from one direction to the other, without moving an inch from it was. My rather pedestrian FWD 12 year old Corolla went through just fine 😂

A 4x4 is indeed the one to go for. Some kind of a visual differentiation and probably a sporty feel to the vehicle would make it so much more interesting for me.

Just to give some perspective I got almost 40 k cash discount, explorer edition audio with 4 speakers free and fifth alloy free- cumulative worth 70 k

All this when I didn't even take insurance from dealer since my company covers it under lease

Please check with some other dealers as well and if you are anyways planning for del regn then you should talk to Aristo. Another bhpian Gaurav also bought his storme from them last week and we can help you get a good deal

PS- mine was a factory fresh piece so it's not like I got the discount because of old dealer stock. In fact dealer didn't have pearl white and had to order it. Mine is June 14 manufactured
Thanks a ton bro. Will meet him and give your reference soon. I would be buying insurance from the dealer as 32000 for 3 years zero dep is definitely a good deal. And if I could manage those extra discounts and freebees that you had got i.e explorer edition system with speakers and alloy apart from the 40k cash discount, i owe you a ride on my brand new truck as soon as its out of the showroom . I am most probably going for UB or SARDINIA RED( i just fell in love with the colour when i saw the pics posted by @Raja and @Gurrala. Variant would be EX for sure.

Nice ride himanshu, you made the truck stand on its legs in the first week itself.

@stormed: i too got discounts similar to what himanshu has got from aristo motors. Please get quotes from a couple of dealers, based on my experience i have seen variation in registration and amc charges in different dealer quotes. I had quotes from three dealers for comparison and eventually went with the one who offered a better deal on accessories and stuff and dealt with me better personally. I too got the ice, 5 alloys, mats, deity for free in addition to dealer discount, corporate discount and a rounding off discount.

Check with aristo motors gurgaon and you can speAk with ajay there, give him himanshu's and my reference. I am sure you will get a good deal than this one.

Thanks a lot. Can you please elaborate if you got 5 alloys or only the fifth alloy complementary. And also did u get the speakers and the touchscreen ICE ? What was the dealer discount that you got ? I have noticed that the moment TATA introduces some scheme , these dealers stop giving the discount or give a meagre amount which in my case was 4500.

13 months & 20k on the clock. All is well

Prerana motors had send across their SA for a routine check. This was for all vehicles less than 18 months.

Got 5 alloys at the price of 4, ICE with 4 speakers. All depends on the dealer in terms of discounts and freebies. Aristo is relatively new in the market and all other dealers in Gurgaon dont have a good standing in the market, thus it is offering relatively better service.

Took some snaps of my Storme yesterday; posting them here for all of you, please ignore the quality as I had to compress the images to reduce them to <1 Mb size and they were taken from my humble 5 MP BB cam.

Visited pandit auto couple of days back to enquire about the zest and could not help myself from checking out the storme....and boy doesnt she look magnificent *thumbs up*
But what i noticed was that the music system has been taken out of all the versions not even the vx has it...so not blue tooth..

Himanshugoswami great to know about your storme's mileage. *thumbs up*

Now i am tempted as the ex is for 12.3 on road pimpri chinchwad and also good discounts on offer

Your storme looks butch and mean bro..i would have loved to go for white too but my better half has warned me against it for the reason that she has got terribly bored with sitting in my white dzire for the past six years . I have my heart set on sardinia red, only want to see a bit used one to figure out how the colour looks after a bit of use and abuse. Anyways, congrats for your ride once again..

I would like to ask this question to all fellow tbhpians especially seniors. My friend has a 2013 model storme vx 2 wd. The vehicle is facing a left pull problem and despite many trips to the TASS, which included- balancing, allignments, rotations, steering check etc , the problem either continues or crops up soon after the visit. What could be the reason behind this infamous left pull in storme and how to go about rectifying it?

Is that to be done while idling or running ?

I have not yet taken the plunge. Not getting time to visit gurgaon for aristo. But would surely be checking it out soon. As of now, i am thinking of going to oberoi motors ,noida again and give your reference to mr. Tyagi ,asking him to match the deal. I had asked him to show me the red colour in flesh, be it at their yard but the staple answer i got was "sir aaj take ek bhi nahi bechi maine , order par milegi but dekhne ke liye nahi available hai " . Anybody you know who has got this particular shade on his storme?

I love the looks of the Storme but the almost spartan interiors are a shocking revelation given the price of the car. The steering wheel especially.
