hey molecule, i loved the guard and the colour of your scorpio a lot but not the chrome fitting on the side indicator, but thats just my personal opinion...
also, your alloys are awesome!
somebody on this forum told me that a scorpio wont go above 140 kmph! whoever it was, just look at the pics mate!

Thanks, Mohnish.
The first three pics are the Shimla road and Narkanda.
The rest are of the road from Narkanda to the Jalori Pass, and at the pass itself.

Thanks Anup for the info. Living in North India gives so many more places to road trip to (specially the himalaya range, which is awesome). Being here on the western coast (mumbai) does have its limitations.

raj_5004 thanks! The crome thing has come off by now! But i felt it looked better. The guard was specially made. I was at the bullbar guys factory and asked him to do it as per my requirement. It has got a provision to hold 2 Hella fog lamps and the flag post on the top. Will be clicking more pics and posting it.

Regards

Also the pics of the 158kmpl were clicked by me when i was driving! Insanity! Holding a steering wheel with one hand and a cell phone cam on the other!

Glad i survived to post the pics!

Those black pillars are looking awesome!

The overall appearance of your car: Is this what is called MINT condition?!

Rally 130/100 On the headlights
100 on the small fog
Stock bulbs on the Hella Fogs. (will be upgrading soon)
Tints (the really juice up your cars looks)
Ice pic attached (will get to details if required)

Sshhhh!! You cannot go around loudly proclaiming that! It is prudent to sugarcoat the pill! Hence the 333.

i am too scared too click a pic at such speeds!
anyways, even the guard i am fitting is made to order. i have placed the order to ajanta and given them the design. they said it will be ready by 18th of this month, when i can go their factory and get it fitted. hope it turns out to be good after such a tedious process!

this is the best interiors i have seen in a scorpio. even my seat cover design is very similar, the colour being beige and brown. but you have gone all the way in matching with your door trim and gear too! the gear lever looks cool too! kudos to you! and the speakers and sub rocks! its a helluva machine!
