Had been to the yard for doing a comprehensive PDI of my Cheetah before registration.

Some snaps from the PDI:

2015 Mahindra XUV500 Facelift : Official Review-xuv-3.png

2015 Mahindra XUV500 Facelift : Official Review-xuv-4.png

When I reached the yard the Engineers were carrying out their PDI and had taken the Cheetah out on a test drive. Once they were finished I began. The folks were kind enough to let me take my time. They invited me to test drive the vehicle as well. The yard was essentially an open field and the rains had created some slush, got to engage AWD

Cheetah is June born. Should be able to get it home by Thursday

Any comments

Curious to know how would it interfere with curtain airbags

My 2 cents: avoid the handirack inflatable ones as they have a max. load capacity of 80 kgs and need frequent adjustments from time to time. Though the conventional carriers are time consuming to install & remove, its no rocket science & you can have a peaceful journey for thousands of kms provided they are covered with tarpaulin and are fastened properly.

Congratulations Sumithb,

White Cheetah looks so beautiful & elegant in the new avatar. Happy mile-munching Waiting for your initial ownership experience. What are the add-ons/ accessories are you planning for the cheetah, if any ?

I am getting Mats and Anti-rust coating free from the dealership. Am thinking of getting 3M Protection Film done on four corners of the bumpers and OVRM. Nothing else, the Cheetah comes fully loaded

IMHO the inflatable ones whose FAQ I read, must be having some kinda belt running from one side to the other from both front and rear doors and would definitely interfere with the curtain airbags. The sleek ones shown at Sun autos web page look cool and I may go for it after checking in person.

I had enquired about PPF in 3M Bangalore and the manager mentioned that they had briefly stopped applying PPF for white coloured cars as they got the feedback that white was turning into slightly yellowish colour after 2 years of repetitive application. Please re-confirm this with your 3M dealer before opting for it.
PS: this is only as far as Paint Protection Film is concerned, not for any other sealants/products.

By any chance would you be knowing the price of the same? Also how much area would it be, if we Cover all of the front and back bumpers?

Heard something about 7.5 J which i am clueless about, just know that this particular specification is rarely available in the after market. Can someone shed some light pls and help me understand the pros and cons of upsizing etc.
AFAIK aftermarket alloys will have a different/negative offset from the OE alloys which means the alloys/tyres will stick out from the wheel arches. This can lead to the tyres rubbing against the arches when the car is loaded or goes over a pothole. Hope this helps.

Congrats Sumithb ! The white shade looks great, looking forward to an ownership thread.

Since the curtain airbags are located on the A & B pillar and the belts tied will almost be sticked to the roof, it should not affect the deployment of airbags. Also my 2 cents Mahindra would have definitely thought about it before providing it as an accessory.

I was quoted an amount of 23584/- for front bumper, rear bumper and the bonnet area. It was priced at 536/- per sq ft and the total area was around 44 sq ft.

Well I am planning for the front and rear bumpers in couple of months.

A quick question. Do we receive any email confirmation from Mahindra after booking XUV? I have booked the car two weeks ago and SA mentioned that car is in transit but didn't receive any email or SMS from Mahindra.

Could anyone who booked the XUV confirm?

Thanks.

Yes you should receive an email once the booking is confirmed from both dealer as well as Mahindra. I received an email from both the dealer as well as Mahindra (customer.relation@ecommunication-mahindra.com), the next day after my booking probably after the dealer made an entry in the system. Visit your dealer and check if the entry has been made or not.

Sorry I am not able to post a snapshot of the same, as I am in office. Will do it in the evening.

Just got off the phone with my local 3M guy. He recommended not doing it for white color as it would turn slight yellowish after couple of years
