And if it's so, does it mean one fills 2 psi points more than normal to account for the loss?
Sam, I consistently fill my car with Nitrogen but have not noticed any drop like you describe/

Haven't noticed the same either, Nitrogen works well for me too.

Hi,

I have a question, is there a possibility to make LED tube as DRL instead of turning it on as parking light.
I read somewhere that in XUV there is an option of making light guides as DRLs but that can be done only at the workshop.

Did anyone explored this

Even I want to do this on my Xuv. I'll be going to the SVC tomorrow. I'll ask them if it is possible or not.

Even if that might be possible, The light guides are not that powerful enough to be seen by other road users during the day, Its only after 5- 6 pm that the light guides starts to become very visible and attractive.

All,

I took delivery of my new XUV 500 W10 today (Orange). During the demo when I asked the showroom person to help me connect the Blue Sense app he said currently the app does not work and Mahindra is looking into it. I am pretty disappointed. Is this true ? Can someone who took delivery recently confirm that the Blue Sense app works for them ?

Also is anyone able to use the Blue Sense App?

Congrats on the new SUV, Amit!

The Blue Sense app is not available yet for the iPhone but should work on Andriod phones.

Cheers

Avinash,

I think that is for the pre-facelift XUV. I tried this with my New Age beast and it does not work.

I guess the information given to me by the dealer person was not correct. I went at 02:30 AM to my XUV to see if the app works and it does work like a charm. I use an android phone. Thanks

While doing a pre-delivery check I did notice some rusting in the brake discs and had informed the sales rep but she dismissed it saying it was some dirt and will go away after a wash. Since that was a rainy day and the car had just arrived from the yard I agreed with her. Now after the delivery I just noticed that the disc are actually rusted. Photo attached for reference. Just wanted to check if this is OK or something to be alarmed about and visit the Service Center.Are other new XUV owners facing similar issue? I happened to check a few Skodas and even my EON and there seems to be no rust though they are really old. Please suggest.
