It looks so much better with that huge gap PS'ed out. M&M could easily come up with another facelift, just by doing that :-)

to rjstyles69
the original looks better as the highlight of the shot is the scorpio the greenery in the second one does add to the beauty of the photo as a whole but takes a little bit of the attention away from the scorpio

Hello All,
Joined this forum yesterday. This is one of the thread that helped me decide on Scorpio (after using Ford Modeo in Uk and then test driving Hona, Ford, Toyotas in India, whether it's the right decision only time will tell).
Please bear with me, I am not trying to hijack the discussion on this thread but the reason for this post is I have booked the Scorpio in 'Java Brown' color. There do not seem to be enough pictures of Java Brown Scorpio, not sure how it looks - I saw only one vehicle for a brief moment but I think I liked it :-)
Could the owners of java Brown scorpio please post the pictures of their proud possesion?
Thanks in advace.

hey congrats on your decision i cant comment on the color but rest assured that you have made the right decision
i hope you have booked a 4wd coz trust me once the off road bug hits you, youre gonna curse yourself for not owning one
i guess mr. anup mathur could share some info about the 4wd scorpio as mine is a 2wd and i am cursing myself

LOL, Rohan, that is the story of sooooo many people who buy the 'regular' variant when the 4WD is available as an option!

And BTW, those pics of the extremely well travelled Scorpio are great!

Off Roadie: I have booked 2WD, still thinking as to whether to go for 4WD but not sure if the off-roading bug has caught me enough yet. This will be my first SUV. Plan to explore the forts, beaches in Maharashtra and then long drives, can not wait.
I have only paid the booking amount till now so still have an option but then I would have to wait for another month for delivery. I just can not bear the thought.

Raj: Thanks, saw java brown today - met anoter customer, it is decent color.

I am going to the yard to my car in next 1 hours. Plan to take some pictures. Not sure if I would be allowed to post though.

My posts are being moderated sohpoing that you get this post soon enough.

hey, he is not a babe... he is a MAN...! mighty muscular's elder bro!

about losing the 'X' factor, no way buddy. infact, the engine performance has increased by a fair margin as the kerb weight of the vehicle has reduced because of the absence of the 'X' badge (mahindra's heavy metal badges!) PJ... i know!

... and also because now it is "driven by team-bhp"!!!

well scorp wrap if you do intend to be an asphalt cowboy a 2wd is sufficient
but trust me that there will be a time when you would want more out of your vehicle and thats when you will realize the power of "4"
a months wait is a lot better than years of repentance
at nip nice photos
at mathur saab glad you liked the pics
at raj congratulations on the gain in performance
