I'd only say that if it's your only vehicle then you'd be better off with a scorpio 4wd. Thar at best can be a decent secondary vehicle.

Its worth a buy, despite all negatives listed. Point is if you know what you are getting into (which is clear from your wishlist), then you wont fret....I have been using since 2011 as my office, weekend, long drive, off road all in one. Don't spend too much decking it, its good as is.

Dear Real-man - hello to you. I know exactly who can help you with a perfect job, he will guide you properly and he will do exactly what you want!

Dear Beloved Bawa Ji,

Please send a PM to Real-man. That way you wont be disclosing the details on a public forum.

(You online at this time of the day!)

As we always maintain, recommending a service that would help another bhpian is always welcome as long as there is no commercial interest involved in it. Sharing information directly on the forum helps many members v/s sharing via a private message.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Amolpol, I agree with the rationale and thats why I am getting inclined to Scorpio 4wd.

Thanks Vnambiar, I have the same thing in my mind want to use it as city car as well and weekend car (for my fishing trips). I make long trips as well (4 - 14 days). And thats where I am hesitating to go for the Thar. What is your experience in the highway? Are you comfortable making long trips with 3-5 passenger?
My another worry is the security - easy access to the valuables that I left behind in the car. If I go for the Thar I will have to get the hard done.

Thanks Behram, Can you PM me the contact details? I would like to take quote for the changes that i have in my mind. Based on the cost I could determine the go and no go.

Real_man, since the auto box has been reintroduced in the Scorpio, just give it a thought.

My father-in-law bought the last of the earlier generation Scorpio Automatics and has had no regrets.

Agreed, the price is slightly steep. But you get a proven body-on-frame vehicle, a delicious engine, a 6-speed auto-box, shift-on-the-fly 4WD, secure environment with all bells & whistles - it can't get better than this, eh?

The rear seats are good for short 2-3hour journeys. For long haul it is good for 2 people + luggage only. Also, being a soft-top, the flapping noise becomes intrusive after 75kmph and may make you fatigued if you are used to silent cabins.
Otherwise, it behaves brilliantly on the highways.

Hello Behram, would u mind sharing the details with me... having a tough time lately with some things

Cheers!

also, I remember seeing a Red Thar with Speaker Pods on the dasdhboard, haven't been able to locate the owner the thread again, if any good Thar'ians can help identify the person who has done this mod will be highly grateful.

Hello Everyone !!

This is my first post on TeamBHP, and it starts with a question

I am tempted to purchase the new Thar, and it is going to be my first and only vehicle (although I own a second-hand non-worshipped Chevy Beat LS). As many people in this thread, I too am interested to go for a hard-top option, something similar to HHT. I am based out of NCR, and going for Mahindra Customizations would be way beyond my budget.

Please let me know what would be a reliable and value for money alternative.

My Scorpio has served well for 6 years and did 100K odd km. I am contemplating for S4 4wd too but I appears that the Thar has possesed me completely.

Hi Buddy,

seems like you and i are in the exact same boat. i am looking to sell my 2008 2.6 CRDE Scorpio LX and go in for the Thar. I have been obsessed with the Thar since launch and even booked it once before cancelling it.

My only fear is that i end up driving 1500 odd kms a month on the highways across North India and am used to the comfort of the Scorpio. How much of that will i be losing out when switching to the Thar ?

My other choices are the new Scorpio, which is a fine vehicle but i feel i maybe a bit bored having used a Scorpio for 7 years now.

With the new interiors upgraded in the Thar it looks much better and im happy to drop the money (and time) to get the Mahindra HT put in Mumbai.

Waiting for 10th September now to see what the TUV300 is gonna be all about.

Looking forward to see which direction you proceed with.

cheers

Kundan

I need to slightly adjust the headlamp aim. Checked the owner's manual but could not find it.
Can anyone guide me on how to adjust the beams vertically?

After you open the headlight case from the front, there will be three screws with springs, two on each side and one below the headlight. Press the headlight with your hand in the direction you choose to adjust and tighten the screws.
