Sure will post some of the pics soon.

A query reg AC: How do the two modes (Normal and Economy) differ in their working i.e. do they cut-off the air-conditioning based on cabin temperature (with a difference in temperature setting), or based on timer (with a difference in time setting)?

From what I understood from Condor's post, he is not talking about simply touching 3000 rpm, but about keeping it there (for 30 seconds?).

I guess most of us even in normal daily commute mode while driving a little aggressively would be going well past 3000 rpm in 2nd before shifting to 3rd.

In a city like Bangalore maintaining 3000 RPM for 30 seconds in bumper to bumper traffic becomes a huge challenge LOL.

But IIRC he also mentioned somewhere do this at least once a week. So i try to follow this religiously in my house lane during sunday mornings when i get chance

Can't you just put it in idle and rev hard? I mean you do not need to drive at 3000 rpm.

Infact the goal is to clear the carbon, so short bursts to 3500-4000 should be enough until you see clear exhaust. If you do not, you are running rich

You mean normally in spite of being a diesel, the exhaust should be colorless? Not black?

I also think it is an inherent feature of some engines. For example, most Scorpios belch out black smoke, while you do not see Safaris doing it so much (or to the same extent).

No, this is not 1965. No modern diesel should smoke. Only when revving hard, you can see a burst of smoke as the engine reaches the required rpm, but sustained black smoke.... not right.

I did not mean sustained black smoke. I meant on hard acceleration (like you see the vehicle ahead moving right and then trying to overtake the vehicle in front of it).

So you mean that time the black smoke is normal? I don't know about my own Storme. The one time I was driving with another Dicor, neither of us were smoking. Even on accelerations.

But on pretty new Scorpios, it is pretty common. Hope that clarifies.

Unless you have a DPF, on hard acceration you will have unburnt fuel, esp if you are something like 1200-1300rpm and in higher gear.
This is black smoke

I saw a Red Safari Storme in Koramangala(Bangalore) today. It belonged to FM Radio City (with all-round decals).

MAYBE it could be made to look good with specific posturing for pictures. But in the real world, I don't think this beast looks stately in Red colour at all. (Just my personal opinion).

It looks like Tata are using Rohit Shetty's Singham 2 to further promote Tata vehicles as per the link below.

Beautiful beast Pradeep. I was eyeing the white Storme a lot more than the Urban Bronze one when I was trying to decide an alternative color to black (typical Indian grandmother issues with black etc. etc.).

But finally I decided that Black was yummy enough to risk fighting the many ugly demons I was guaranteed to fight if I chose it.

A big hearty thanks to the fellow members @himanshugoswami and @garyag79 for recommending ARISTO motors. It was a pleasant surprise considering that they represent TATA motors. Mr. Ajay could not make it personally as he had some personal problem at home and infact, was very apologetic about it over phone. He had sent over another colleague Mr. Ashish who was equally courteous and a pleasure to discuss and deal with. Someone coming over all the way from Gurgaon to Noida only for a "prospective" deal , that too right on time, was commendable. My 98% possibility of buying this beast has added another 1% only because of the wonderful attitude of these guys. Once again, thanks to both of you

Did a little bit of 'interesting highway driving' today on the way back from office. When I reached home and parked, I noticed some kind of a burning smell coming from the rear wheels / brakes area. Is that normal? Or have I pushed the brakes too far? In any case, I am due for the 15k km service next week. Will get them checked; hope I haven't burnt anything out due to my 'interesting' driving today.

Nothing better than the smell of burning rubber- NIRVANA!
Nothing's wrong, you just pushed it, and braked hard sometimes in your "interesting" highway drive.
