The scoop on the 2.2's is functional and for the intercooler, accepted.
There is a front grill provided in all cars to cool down the radiator besides the coolant doing the job,pls correct if wrong.
Now that is what i meant and not airflow to intercooler.

yes pradeep. infact, if you remember, some earlier scorpios (pre 2004) had some overheating issues & as a solution, mahindra has altered the angle of the fins of the grille & also relocated the number plate.

well, i am not sure how the fogs on riju's car can affect the engine (i somehow think it wont make much of a difference), it is only riju who can confirm this in the long run.

Guys , you keep getting Scorps in white (a color which I dont personally prefer) ; but your Scorps look so hot that its totally bowling me over. Given that the black one has gray claddings (eww) - your white ones are looking like an excellent buy.

Those black and red interiors - are they standard? How about for the SLE ?

Methinks the black and red interiors comes with the VLX. SLE has the tan and beige interiors, honestly looks disgusting and I cant seem to fathom how do I maintain it in the long run.

Looks like everyone's gone into hibernation . Here's one from me, super skies however couldn't get the exposure rite to catch the Scorp'. No PP done, except for converting from RAW to JPEG and setting the curves.

Thanks folks, wish I knew how to get rid of it. Anyways that was a RAW image straight out of the cam. Have done some processing and here is the outcome. Left to you chaps to decide the better of the lot

Thanks anup, why don't you get a full frame of the scorpio in the image ? Give it a shot you have nothing to loose.

Hehe, to me the sceneries look prettier than the Scorpio!
But you're right!

Pardon me rj sirjee, worked on your pic without your consent.

Also, could you please share about the kind of processing you did in PS to get this look? (Steps etc??)

Truly fantastic shot!!
