NIP, those alloys and tyres have immensely improved the looks of your Scorpio. Please do post more pics with the vehicle in more exotic surroundings, like the kinds you've posted earlier.

Well..I have the auto wiper switch on since the rains started. It is irritating to see a small stream flow on both the front & rear glasses.

What point is there in Mahindra promoting "great offroading adventures" when the company is not coming out with their mighty muscular s(off)t roader with a 4x4 option to compete with weak muscles.

Pramods, Vasudhir, NIP - you guys have a great set of wheels. I wish I had (actually afford) one .
Seeing few of the shots that you guys have uploaded in this thread, I would say you should show them to guys at Mahindra. They are well worth to be part of some print advertisement for the Scorpio. How about one for the US launch. An Indian vehicle aganist a backdrop of India's famous tourist destinations like Leh and the Kunoor tea gardens. Wow.
