Dear BEHRAM

Thank you as always for doing the needful. I got a call from the Tata Motors CSM and he has taken all my feedback and is now in the process of drafting an "internal" email to you (which he was at pains to stress cannot be CC'd to me).

Have taken the liberty of adding some other points as well, since it seems he has a "receptive audience" this time.

OT: Stormerider, how come it was there in TASS even before the launch? I would love to try my hands on the so called upgraded version. Need to take the call at the earliest now as even my 8 year old daughter keeps taunting me on my 7 year old Dzire.

I believe you would have been among the early ones to test drive the vehicle. Sworn to secrecy? Or can give some updates about the changed driving dynamics, clutch etc?

LOL, no. When we drive the Storme, we will get the review out as soon as possible.
I just gleamed that from the specs.
Even while reviewing this version, I noticed that the LX version had both options specified in the user manual. ABS and LPSV

Though it seems unlikely that TMIL wouldn't show and take feedback from a pro like you , given your reputation in this highly esteemed forum but I respect the privacy commitments/constraints and would really be looking forward to your official review .

Removing ABS from the lx version is a stupid move from Tata motors.
The Storme is already a barebones suv regarding features when relatively compared to the competition .
Hope to see atleast a major price reduction in the new model to justify the changes .
Is the TEAM doing a official review of the new Storme ?

@xbox360, unlikely that the launch will be tomorrow. IIRC the Nano GenX which was supposed to be launched yesterday is delayed to 3rd week of May. Storme will be after that. Any idea of offers on Aria in Bangalore?

You were right, no news of the launch. Was hoping to see a full page in the paper this morning.

Anyhow Concorde motors here in HYD have started taking booking as the pricing and the deals for May are out. Besides LX being lower in price, I am told that there is no other change on the pricing front.

I have gone ahead and booked a Silver VX 4X2 (sent them an email, they will be doing the formalities on Monday).

How much have they cut down on the discounts or have they totally withdrawn that? There would be a huge gap between LX and Ex and if they bring down the price of the former only.

There is an exchange bonus of ~30k this month which is no good to me as I have nothing to trade in. Besides they are going to find out if the corporate discount is applicable to this new launch or not, that's ~10-15k. I will know more when he comes to collect the cheque today.

Hi All,

If the launch is today/tomorrow or already done:
DO we have a confirmation if the last row is front facing or still the same. Reason for multiple follow ups is looking to book this or will go for Aria.

Apologies for repeated questions.

Regarsd,
Saurabh.
