Engine oil + oil filter + air filter change will get your beast back on track with the smoothness.

Hope the road wasn't angled in the direction of the pull?!

Do get the alignment checked to get things sorted.

I was having this issue from day 1. car always pulling to left though it was slight/minor. Deliberately did not get this checked from TASC since i rely more on outside tyre service centers. After the 1st service took the beast to MADHUS - got the tyres aligned, removed normal air and filled with nitrogen. Now i dont get any left pulling issue.

BTW completed almost 2200 kms on ODO today. Beast is giving me mileage of max. 11 kmpl with 50% highway and 50% city driving

If i understood this correctly are you recommending this for the first service? All these things are not mentioned in the owner's manual for 1st service, neither during my first service oil or filter was changed!

Yes buddy, I am recommending to change them at 1000 kms. I know Tata doesn't give this in the schedule but I suggest to change it proactively.

MASS too never says to change them at 1000 kms but I did change them proactively. Helps a bit in long-run.

Thanks madhu, had a Firefox MTB initially but it soon gave way to the Bianchi, the roadie is with me now for last 3 years, it loves the Delhi roads.
Off topic, but yeah white does look on storme and makes it look truly huge. I saw a white storme with that explorer decal ( somehow i liked it on white storme) and a front bonnet spoiler, a new accessory launched by TMIL for storme. I although saw it from some distance but man, it was looking fantastic. Do check that spoiler out.

Can someone please help with a detailed list of all GOLD AMC options provided by TATA for storme pertaining to different number of years and kilometres. I am interested in gold amc and all the dealers have tried to push for a different years/km combo. My past usage on a dzire has been around 50000 km in 3 years, which package would suit me more. I hope i am making some sense here. Would appreciate an excel kind of format consisting of all the available options in gold AMC. thanks

Visited Concorde Motors Baner yesterday took a quote for the Storme EX.Following are a few details:

On road price: 12,32,000/- appx.

Discount 40K + 15K corporate.

By paying about 19K i was offered three years of zero depreciation insurance (thats a saving of almost 1 Lac in three years as the insurance premium is 44K appx yearly)

Then loan from SBI was a mouth watering offer too.

I guess Storme is coming home albeit a pleasant one.

Dealers usually have set packages, try getting in touch with local tata executive. Amc is a customizable product and typically used to cost 85paisa per km of coverage.
I have a 4yr/1lac km gold Amc. If you need details search the thread, as it has been discussed in detail.

I saw a Storme with the hood deflector you are talking about. I did not like the design though. Did not gel with the bonnet and looked too bulky. Any idea how much it costs?

Hood deflector costs around Rs.4000 in Bangalore

BTW i received an email from concorde motors on list of Safari Storme exclusive accessories along with pricing (in Bangalore). Thought I will post here for benefit of members:

TYVEK BODY COVER AT rs 3700/- is very very low pricing indeed for a vehicle size of the STORME.
I know that many sites are selling the smaller car covers at rs 4000-5000 levels.
So that is indeed very sensible pricing .

Precisely , n that is the list of options i am looking for ? because most of the dealers are adamant of pushing the option that they have or relying on our knowledge . So if we have a list of all the km/time Amc options, we can choose which one we want to opt for . Anybody can help with that?
