I have installed the shark fin antenna (from Amazon) couple of months back. It's a perfect fit so far. No issues.

Is it the same antenna which I shared in my post? I found it a bit smaller for the S-Cross. I think the shark fin antenna on the new Honda City is bigger in size, hence I thought that I have got the wrong antenna.

Yes. It is the same as you shared. This one is smaller than the City one, but perfectly fits. I'm not able to attach a picture from mobile now. If you can refer my post 5-6 pages brfore (I had attached a photo of my car - not able to search the post number on phone), you can see the antenna. Also in that photo you can see double barrel exhaust extension and chrome door handles.

Post No. 5680 is where Sree73 Sir had uploaded the rear 3 quarters image of God S-Cross. Direct link to that post.

Ajay,
I was wondering why you have ordered different colours for the Door guards (appears dark grey / black) and a white shark fin antenna.

My S-Cross is white so antenna has to be white. And door guards look better in contrasting colors IMO, hence those are black.

Seriously, the more I see them, the more I like these cars. They have every qualification to become one of those quiet icons in Indian Motoring and perhaps 10-15 years on, to take on the mantle of "Classic". And the best part is that if maintained well, these have the capacity to remain in good shape years down the line as well.
The better things in life, quite clearly, are NOT for the masses and personally Im quite happy with this fact.
* I have NOT driven a 1.6 S-Cross yet *

Since you have specifically mentioned 1.6 S-Cross, I guess you are implying that the 1.6 litre engine is the reason why S-Cross could be a icon/classic. Now I do notice that 1.6 litre engine has some 30% higher torque than its similarly sized competitors. But other than the "number", what is unique about the engine?

- 1.5 litre engine from Vento/Rapid
- 1.6 litre engine from Creta
- 1.5 litre engine from Duster 110

all have similar performance characteristics. Take any parameter -

- power
- 0 to 100 kmph acceleration
- top speed
- In-gear acceleration

and the above engines roughly match the performance of 1.6 litre Fiat engine. Then how is 1.6 S-Cross different? Why is it the enthusiast's choice?

OK. Post the pictures once you fix these on the car. You may have to apply a little extra pressure on the Shark fin antenna so that it fixes on the car top surface. Normal pressure may not work. It requires hard pressing so that the adhesive tape properly get attached to the surface. Also clean the car surface properly. I think there will be a cleaning agent piece of cloth along with the package.

Actually, whether the door guards give any real guarding for the door?. The point of contact of the door on potential objects varies as per the height / profile of the object. So, do the guards really gives any protection?

Hi. Guess the fact that it is a 'Maruti' and a performance crossover or hatch and that it comes with all the bells and whistles makes it a unique product from the MSIL stable. Reliability power and mass appeal is what is in favor of the scross compared to the other names you mention. And frankly the scross has more features than all the other names and more space too

Does one feel the need to get the remap to such figures on the already super charged machine? IMHO the 1.6 and 1.3 both need only a bit of a tuning to ease out pickup and a bit more torque around 1500rpm. Anyhow, still waiting for your complete thread. Kudos!

I agree with you to a large extent. The point of contact of the door does vary in different situations. But in most cases, say 6/10, the first point of contact is the protruding part of the door.

Besides, I like the looks of the car with the door guards, especially in contrasting colour. All of the cars at home have guards on them.

Hi Dr

Could you please tell us the real world implications of a remap on reliability, maintenance, emissions, resale. I am particularly interested in the reliability part. Also as i am Gurgaon and the tuners are usually from down south who make periodic visits up north ;do we need real time local support. Ive been contemplating getting a remap for my 1.6 but cannot convince myself. Also how does a remap compare to a tuning box on all the above parameters, esp reliability? All inputs will be deeply appreciated

Thanks
SC
