I'm still not able to convince myself that the updated looks are for the better. I'll take the older looks anyday!

so after manson you are also relishing your beast post 1L kms. Though he has moved on to new scorpio now. shows the trust people put in the vehicle.

Congratulations on the car of continuing to give you service.

Excellent Pics Sudhir, congratulations on the ownership.

Any one having an idea if the new bumper and fog lamps can be fitted on to the last gen. VLX. These bumpers look better and probably will contain the water splashing on the wind screen, specially in Mumbai rains.

One design flaw I am noticing since the rains started, water from the roof continuously spills on on the wind screen & the rear glass any remedy / suggestions. This is more of an irritant than a problem.

My stock bridgestones with steel rims had done 63k kms and were in bad shape. Had a long trip planned, and it was time my baby got her overdue set of new shoes. I also upgraded from 15" to 16". Also installed a new bull bar Here's some pics:

Thanks Raj...bullbar is carryboy and cost 8k. Actual price is 9k, but got a discount cause I got the alloys and tyres from him as well. Its PU I think.
