No guess's Spikee, whats stopping you guys from revealing numbers? I really wish Thar would sell so that version 2 would come out fast at the same price with better build and ac and alloy anddddddd..... we all can buy it and go back to one big happy family!
Umm, good guess. I just fail to understand who gave birth to the V2, is that you or Khan or Milecruncher?

I think i had told this here even before the launch. but i did not expect everyone will take it serious after it was launched.

Spike, lets put it like this. the armada had better fit and finish than 540? the bolero was even better than armada? invader had the same finish of bolero? but THAR has same fit and finish of 540. so invader is better or the THAR?

They are known as "Eternally Hopeful" Indian Consumer But seriously if you can influence a change, do help us get a better executed interiors & AC off the production line. Will mean alot to lot many of us.

Ha, ha, ha, interesting numbers. FYI, there are 3 digit bookings from one state already.

Can't reveal but numbers are really promising.

Spike
so i can take the liberty of guessing what the 1st production batch of Thar CRDe is?

50 Thar CRDe have been built and are selling!

it cant be 100 as MM cant really reveal the number, but are promising!

3 digit bookings mean 2nd production batch might have started!

Spikey, don't blame me or the others. Nobody would do anything like spreading heresy over here. But please don't try to get us into a technicality and confuse. Don't tell me you guys are not going on the V2. I have a felling that a better version is already getting made.

I would want one of those :P

That's Khan's GPS.

The adventure version price list was not out with the dealer. Basically, the stock version has head lamps fitted from out and the adventure has them fitted from behind giving it a recessed look.

Honestly, the couple of pictures, listed under Mahindra section on their Website, look positively HORRID.

Maybe it's just bad pictures. Please can you let us have some Pics, from your Thar, and how much you paid for these.

Whatever be better in terms of fit and finish, tell me frankly will you buy a Invader or a 540? 540 I guess. How many Invaders do we see on road?

I have never spread any confusion dude, in fact I have relentlessly tried to counter people from spreading confusion and I believe, I know what I'm talking.

I'd want to buy an Invader (or Invader like vehicle) with the CRDI heart. I always felt this vehicle was not correctly packaged and priced, for it's time.
