I think you need to do some more adjustment with the angle
I ordered mine after I read about your turbo whistle. but since I was unsure of the sizes I ordered size "s" . Will try changing the angle and check if the output increases.

It looks good on a Jeep since it gels with the overall design of the jeep (soft top). Moreover I am not a fan of wheel on the backpanel unless it is a big vehicle.

Lol. The design has the spare wheel at the back so there's obviously nothing that can be done about that.

Keeping it exposed attracts dust. I don't like the hard plastic cover as its expensive and just looks like a large Plastic expanse at the back.

The crv is not a soft top and even there out doesn't look bad.

I dont mind the spare at the back. Just need a way to cover it.

Wonder why so far nobody in the after-markets has come with options. I like the one that Quanto has. Am waiting for someone to come up with something like that.

I just got my Ecosport Diesel Titanium (O) delivered, which was booked during the first week of Oct 2013. I didn't go for a lot of aftermarket accessories as it is going to be driven primarily by my wife and added just the 3D foot mats (Rs.5400 - Maxpider brand).

I purchased the insurance from HDFC Ergo for Rs.20000 (bumper to bumper) policy, declined to purchase the essential package and also managed to bring down the handling charges to Rs.4000 from the initial quote of 10k. Recent drop in the prices (about 26k) was an added bonus. I must say that the experience has been good so far.

Hi Naveen,
I have done around 13000km till date and had the opportunity to drive at speeds higher than 140kmph at several closed stretches.

Be assured the car is an absolute delight

You can as well ask him to pick one from Dubai instead of trying here.

The decal looks great on this Color, as if it was made for it. Moreover, nice place to hook it up just next to the Ecosport badge.

Looks nice on the sea grey.
Why doesn't your car have the reverse parking sensors?

Its an Ambiante / Trend trim which doesn't come with parking sensors as default. Better install one soon

Because his car must be a Trend/Ambiente variant (Notice the steel spare wheel with wheel cap) and sadly both of them are not equipped with parking sensors.

They should have made parking sensors a standard feature across all the variants (they hardly cost a couple of thousand bucks).They come very handy in tight spots.

My uncle's Ecosport's (Diesel) 10k service was done recently. Total bill came to 4.6k which includes general service (oil replacement, changed air filter as he mentioned the FE wasnt good) and also replaced one ORVM which was broken.
