And a great color! This is one of the best colors - majestic looking!

For a second there I thought hey those are my pics. LOL
You are going to love your ride. Have you thought about a tyre upgrade to Yoko's or Michelin?
Please post a pic of your IRVM with the reverse cam on and a few interior pics too. I think theIRVM's are bigger than in the older model VX.

Tanveer,

Anyway to modify my ID/handle? After what I see, I think I'll need to add a '79' to it. I think '78' should also work.

Ok guys I am back. Had to stay away for a while thanks to the oh so great Taxmen.

@ i.1979 Congrats on your new ride.

@ Gowda79 Yes indeed, I am an angel for my car. But can't say the same for fellow drivers on the street.

And thank you every one for your wishes.

I did took the monster for a ride this weekend on NH-8. And it was a wonderful expirience.

Also managed to put the ABS to some test and it came off with flying colours.

Applied the brakes while moving @ 100-120 KMPH couple of times and the car stopped really nicely. It came to an absolute halt in a perfect straight line.

I also tried to park the car by taking a sharp left turn while moving at around 80-100 and the car did wonderfully well. There was a loud rattling noise which came from the front right wheel, but this is normal as per the owners manual. The rattling noise means the ABS is working and is preventing the wheel from locking up.

Too bad the camera I took along had a dead battery.

But the best part was when I saw a gentleman and his wife ogling at the Safari. Not surprising, oh it seems I forgot to mention that they were moving in an Audi and had stopped at the same dhaba.

Will surely post more pictures once I get the V-Kool sunfilm done.

@ TSK1979 Thank you for giving me sufficient reason to utilise my leaves. Munsiyaari here I come.


BTW what does 79 stand for in your handle. Same question for Sidcuruise79 and i.1979.

Ciao

Congrats ItsMyLife! Any accessories to add in the future?

Safari's been on the Indian roads for 10 years now. We are having a meet for Safari owners at Kulathungal Motors , TRV to celebrate the occasion. This this was organized by Tata. Hope I get time to go and meet others.

@ItsMylife.

Congrats for your Hulk. I can understand your excitement for taking her out right away. She's such a wonderful machine once you've fallen in love with her, its difficult to see her everyday standing in your parking area. She seems to be crying all the time to 'plough the road' (to use Gowda's sign. phrase partly). The more you drive it, the more you want it!

BTW, drive safe and enjoy the ride.
