Thanks.
Any early issues with the Hawk ? And would the Hawk be available in a 4X4 version in Mumbai ?

Great pics NIP and HVK !

And since this is a Scorp thread...

yes, issues like a 'whoosh' sound coming sometimes and the excessive gear lever vibration. but as i mentioned in some other thread, the gear vibration is reducing to a great extent as kms pile up and the sound has been identified as coming from any 1 of the 2 motors placed besides the engine. will get it rectified tomorrow.
sorry, i have no idea about the 4x4 version in the hawk.

'Mid pleasures and palaces,
Tho' we may roam;
Be it ever so humble,
There's no place like home;
A charm from the skies
Seems to follow us there,
Which, seek through the world
Is ne'er met with elsewhere.
Home! Home! Sweet home!
There's no place like home!
Oh! there is no place like home! ....................... John Howard Payne

It's a standard fitment.
Decorative in 2.6CRDe and a working one in the 2.2 mHawk.

sure - its a standard fitment - purely decorative (personally I dont like it much)
in the 2.2 MHAWK however, it is a working feature, functions as an Air Intake.

Arrow Collating Pictures

Hai Scorpio Adorers,

Don't know how I missed this thread..... must be the turbo lag

Went thro this wonderful thread....... Kurdos Raj for starting this, love this thread.... some of the photos are drool worthy.

Will be posting all the pictures in a while... in the meantime.....

Have a LX 9 seator (original jump seats in the last row changed to the last row long seat) and the claddings fitted, new front bumpers with the air dams, fog lamps; garwara RTO permission grade films, CRDe June 07 model.

Done 23133 Km in 12 months. Ice Pioneer DVD with a drop down VCD display with provision for jacking in a playstation output, Sony speakers on the rear door, front speakers standard.

What I like about this Truck: Love the turbo whistle, refined engine, space (compared to my earlier Fusion) and the riding comfort. Even after 800 km of drive, I feel I could still ride another 500/600 kms, earlier on the Fusion that was impossible after 800/900 kms. Love the road presence, (most vehicles scatter at the sight of rolling scorp), improved susp (have test driven older scorp with a friend), the visibility, powerful A/C and drivability. From what I have heard reported from long time owners, the reliability, maintenance cost also are very attractive.

What I wish are better: Better front A/C vents for the driver, better centre row a/C [freezes the bollocks off people, I carry a rug now for my son to sleep in the middle row ] a blower from the top could be ideal, wish waterfall effect would somehow go off when riding thro water, wish hard clutch is softer, wish the gears are smoother and the clutch pedal would not make so much noise.

More in next........

Just checked the Invoice Date of my Scorp, its 9/8/07, so its only 10 month old, technically.

@ anupmathur: very very good pics sir.

@ Ksingh: if you notice from the pics i have posted of both the CRDe and mHawk standing next to each other, you will see that the bonnet scoop of the hawk is bigger than on the CRDe.

@ ramkya1: thanks buddy. nice color of your scorpio and nice pice too.
