Dear getsurya,Thanks for the inputs, I spoke to the dealer, they will do the necessary setting. I am planning to visit them on thursday, need to get the following things done / checked.1. Activation of remote locking & shock sensor.2. Front right brakes making a squeaking noise while breaking at low speeds.3. Lot of brake dusk being accumulated in the rear tyres.4. The front suspension is squeaking at the smallest jerk.5. The driver side wiper arm is broken, need to get it replaced. Mupreti, The scorp central locking needs to be activated to have the auto door lock feature once engine is on and all doors are closed. I have got this activated(no cost involved as it is just activating the existing feature in the Nippon ECU) with the help of Nippon service personnel.

@Raj, very exciting Youtube links, saw & enjoyed all of them.
But Indian clips are still amateurish!
Will India ever get those powerful SUV's/Jeeps!

indian consumers are economy conscious, so getting those huge V6 and V8 seems highly unlikely at this moment.

Noticed the one on the drift, well, I remember seeing a photo (or was that a video) which shows that smart guy finally ending up toppling the vehicle!!!

Talk about being amateurish, this guy takes the cake.

Edit:
Got it:

Hai PPl,

Was with the GQ6K6D team, on the Scorp and also the Safari. What a trip it turned out to be!!!!!!

Having done the miles on both, I can say both have great + points to them. Do I have to say anything more....

Here's a picture from the run, the Scorp in AP.

no red colour in the mHawk. only diamond white, java brown, black, turf green, forest green, rocky beige (grey) and silver are available.

out of this, white, rocky beige and silver comes with beige interiors with wooden central console while the others sport red and black interiors with carbon fibre central console.

Hi Folks with mHawks, I recently had my wheels balanced and aligned at 7000km. It took me some effort along with the Service outlet people to relearn the TPMS system. Took close to 90 min to finish the TPMS job(probably this being the first time it took long, however i feel this is lil cumbersome!)
Have you all also have faced the same concern?
