When the car went to A.S.S., I particularly called the service manager and got it noted down to him but he probably decided to ignore my word/complaint as it's over 2 weeks since I talked to him over the phone and he is yet to get back to me. Kindly drop in your suggestions guys.
Please write to customercare@mahindra.com about your issue, if possible get a video of the wheel spin problem and attach it as well (upload to youtube and share the link in the email). Most of the MLD retrofits in this group were done only by reporting to Mahindra customercare. Some one from customer care will contact you and then arrange for the retrofit.

If you can replicate the wheelspin , make a video of it and mail it to M&M . They should be able then approve an MLD fitment.
Am still yet to figure out how to simulate a wheelspin any ideas guys

Thank you sir! I am somehow reluctant to rack up the miles at the moment and am not taking my TUV for my office runs. But I'll start doing it once the heat kicks in.

Thank you sathyasuri. I have the review (among other threads) cooking in the assembly line.

I saw a video on YouTube with the title "TUV vs Bolero Wheel Articulation" where I found a good visual explanation on how to create a wheelspin in the TUV. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I haven't tried it myself though.

Don't worry, first 1000Kms it takes to adjust to any new vehicle. First start driving at a steady (cruising) speed on highways, then take it for your daily commute. City commute, in TUV especially, needs attention - 100% of time. So, first get used to dimensions / physics of vehicle in highways. This helps a lot in lowering fears of two wheelers passing you close by. (Tried & tested method.)

I am yet to come to terms with the braking (can't tell when it's begun to bite after pressing on the brake pedal), nor can I tell where the kerb is on the left side while parking, as you sit so high up in the TUV. I hit the front left tyre's sidewall on the kerb while trying to parallel park it outside my sister's home on Sunday.

Not sure about the braking aspect, but I was wondering if I should stick a convex mirror on the left hand side external mirror, just to get a sense of the kerb vis-a-vis the car.

The dealer has a generic parking assist thingy which I was considering installing in the front, for this very reason. It costs 2700 at the dealer. Unable to attach pic but it is similar to this http://s.aliexpress.com/FRbe6FzQ

So there is an option to use the same parking assist sensors elsewhere, which are already installed in the rear-end in T8 and T10?
I don't know, a plain vertical convex mirror strip seems sufficient to me...until then, God forbid that I need to drive on the edge of some hillside road (like the stretch between Hrishikesh - Joshi mutt, or the Mt. Washington auto road)! I am properly unable to judge spaces on the left side of the car.

Thanks for your suggestion mates, yesterday I tweeted the same to Mahindra (Anand too) and within 15 minutes I got a phone call. After having explained the situation, the person on the other side said "Karwa dete hain (will get it done)" for the MLD fitment. Now let's see how it goes.

I haven't done, just explained them the situation and got a verbal approval. The person on other side was some senior customer service official.

It seems that after endurance kit, mahindra is launching adventure kit. Just saw couple of videos on installation of the adventure kits. It is in gun metal color and they have front and rear door cladding, marker lamps with shroud, side skirt, etc. Would be interesting to see if the new kit is successful as the endurance kit and armour kit were not that successful

The wheel arches & door cladding is uglier than ENDURANCE KIT. Given choice & PRICING, I would combine front & rear bumper kits of ADVENTURE set with side, wheel & door cladding of ENDURANCE set.

At 50K, Endurance kit was bound to fail. I had posted photos of actual KIT which was few shades down in quality from the KIT shown at AUTO EXPO.

Congrats locusjag for the tank.. Looking forward to your ownership experience. Unfortunately I couldn't go ahead with the tank and now happily settled with Nexon XZ+ D.

Thank you sir. If not for your great research on how BS 4 diesel engines would fare with BS 6 diesel, I probably would still be in 'pause' mode!

Congrats to you for the Nexon! I eyed the Nexon too but somehow, ever since the launch of the TUV in 2015, I've had a thing for it. Just acted out my thing in the end. Besides, I wanted maximum seating capacity and comfort within the 4m mark.

Hi All,

Happy to inform that I have gotten myself a handsome black (yeah one more on Team-BHP !) 'Baloo'. Its a top the line (T10) single colour AMT variant.

I had booked the vehicle in Jan and got the delivery on 5-Mar. I am yet to stretch its legs due to lack of RTO formalities.

Thanks to this forum, AutoIndian's ownership thread and my own road trip on a TUV sealed the vehicle, the variant and the colour.

Accessories fitted: Rain visor, Rear parking camera, 3M mats

I have also given Baloo a 3M underbody and engine protection coat.

Early days with the beast but thoroughly enjoying the attention its garnering within the society parking and the small runs it is making !
