the scorp always seemed narrow and toothless with the original bumper without the extensions and used to throw up a lot of water in the smallest of puddles that problem i think has reduced due to the lower lip ,the lower grill
mesh was in a horrible state when i bought the vehicle so the ne grill.ofcourse i am painting the thing black will post pictures soon

Here is my contribution. This is our family Friend`s car and i drove it all the way from vizag - ahmadabad - galiyakot - vizag a month back. All in all it was a 5k kms. trip in 6 days.

The first pic is of ghats of ajanta in MH.
The second one if just a stop over somewhere
The speedo pic if when i was doing ahmadabad - surat . The car was so smooth and i didn`t realise i was doing that speed until i saw the speedo. I maintained this speed for about 30 - 40 secs . This time was enough for me to take out my heavy SLR and click the snap.

the last pic shows the CRDe does 160 kmph at 4000 rpm, wonder at what rpm it happens in the mHawk...

Not to hurt your sentiments buddy, but this is not to my taste. any scorpio owner would easily make out this as an aftermarket job. moreover, the bull bar & yellow fogs dont really gel well with the bumper IMHO.

i know you are from mumbai, but please consider buying a new pair of 'mahindra' logos first. your car has lost its identity now.

The bumper looks rejuvinated, the bull bar looks to be oversized.

Any particular reason you went in for additional fog lamps ?

it is matt black as for the yellow fog lamps i need them as i travel frequently at night to goa and there is a lot of fog specially in the winters as for the bull bar i didnt want to go in for the full guard as it inevitably shakes a lot and also interferes with the full beam.as for taste i bought the scorpio only for its solid mechanicals to go to leh (which i did) fact is after the safari the scorp just cant compete in the looks dept.
