exactly as mr anup said ...
in that show perilous journeys that guys drive shaft got screwd and a big rod came out of that cup area..the rod was connected to the differential which turns the wheel and distributes the power to the wheels.I really dont know much about the mechanics but love to learn about them

One question, why do you need that ladder in the back? Show or does it have some purpose?

Guys, One thing I noticed is each scorpio has some character built into it. Seeing so many pics, I never felt that oh this is yet another scorpio. Thats why I call it a 'Character Car'.
Thanx brother. Well the ladder is just to add some character.

the ladder is good, i guess its just for style.

i noticed 4 sensors on the bumper as well as a camera on the rear number plate, you never need to worry about reversing now.
Great that you liked the grill. Since the headunit had a camera input option, I thought why not get a camera also along with the sensors and trust me it surely helps.

Do tell us where each one was taken.
Sir they were taken in routine touristy destinations...same ol Shimla, Manali, Nainital etc.

But honestly, with no roof rack, why?
If you were to go to Shimla, you'll have a dozen of these touts clambering all over your car offering "hotel..hotel...hotel..", LOL! And some might actually climb up the ladder too! All of this with the car moving!
Love your sense of humour.

If they are available off the shelf I would like to pick one up when I am in Delhi next week.
Yes the grill is readily available at two Scorpio dealerships, Bhasin and Sri Durga. Alternative for cheaper options, you can get from Accessory shops in Karol Bagh too.

As I remember it was Rs. 3K in exchange and Rs. 3.5 without at the A.S.S.

Outside you can get it for almost half the price. But my experience was that its better to get it from A.S.S as its a no hassle business and the finish is better.

Hi WanderNomad,

Is it available in body colours. I have a Rocky Beige colour.

And if you can just guide me to the location of these dealers in Delhi, because I will be there in transit only for a few hours, so if they are anywhere between the Airport & the Old Delhi Rly station I might just be able to make it.

Bhasin motors is in south extension part 1 , which would be about a 30 minute drive from the airport (depending on traffic). i have seen the grill in grey, black and brown. you can call their sales rep a chap called rakesh on 9811930964, he will provide you with all details. he helped me get my scorp too.

Update on my Scorpio:

I finally have the Car back with me after full one week (Sat to Sat). Every thing sorted out to my satisfaction, had a 20 Km long TD before signing on the delivery note. I litreally rushed & ripped as I had never done before to be sure that nothing squeaks, gear dosent fall out, brakes are noiseless etc etc.

1. Front right break making a squealing sound while breaking on low speeds.

The brake pads were cleaned & adjusted, no sound there now.

2. The entire front of the car squeaks even after a small pot hole / speed breaker.

Front dampers replaced. All body nuts & bolts tightened.

3. The locking remote refuses to function at time, I have to press it multiple times to unlock / lock. Auto ream not working

The remote has been adjusted, works perfectly now. Auto re arm on starting the ignition & all doors locked no keys in ignition activated. Impact sensor activated.

4. MOST IMPORTANT: The 5th gear is slipping into neutral on its own.

Gear box replaced & clutch adjusted. This one immediately feels much better than the original one.

5. While parking I could hear a lot of creaking from the front wheels while turning the steering.
Stopper bolt was the culprit. Adjustment has been done so no noise now.

6. Broken Wiper arm

The Wiper arm has been replaced under warranty.


Thanks are due to M&M, Mr. Behram Dabhar, G3 Motors (Mr. Swapnil & Naval) for excellent support and prompt response.

This refffirms my decision to go for a Scorpio & M&M.

Hai Upreti,

Great to hear problems are sorted out to your satisfaction.

In the last 18 months of ownership, M&M ASC at Ahmedabad had improved by leaps and bounds, their response time has been good. Though they were horrible when I started out, I compalined plenty, I heard M&M used the user feedbacks to bring them on line.

My last 12 months experience with M&M has been better than Ford, Hundai and Maruti as I have owned / owning all these brands. From the story of my friends with other cars (except Honda, they are great in after sale service) they are all grumbling about the dealers and how insensitve they are.

That's the sotry so far..........hope this holds.

Hi, The squeaks have been taken care of by the replacement of the front bushes & tightning of all the suspension nuts / bolts.

The dealership and the supervisors did a great job. The kind of welcome I get from the sales & service staff every time I am in the show room (G3 Motors, Navi Mumbai) is to be seen to be believed.

Every thing was covered under warrenty so nothing spent this time round.

Small grouse, the car was washed & vacuumed before it was handed over to me, but the entire car was filthy with all the grease stains, the seats are literally ruined.
getsurya thats what I get for not taking your advise.

I spent the entire morning today cleaning up the interiors with a couple of sprays I have left over from my Wagon R, now they are spic and span as though new.

The Seats were cleaned with warm water and Ezee, using a cotton cloth, at least the grease stains are gone, and the overall look is clean.

The accessory guy offered me seat covers at the following rates:
Fixed covers (Stitched to the seat) - 10000.00
Loose Covers - 5500.00
The material some sort of fake leather, which can be cleaned with soap and water.
Fellow TBHPians in Mumbai / Navi Mumbai , guide me to a better deal as I feel he is overcharging..



I finally got a long overdue Mahindra OEM (Minda) gear lock installed while the car was at the A.S.S.cost me Rs. 2000 including installation.
Gives some more peace of mind.

hey guys, finally i got a call from my A.S.S. (global gallarie, thane) that have to come to the showroom for 15 mins to change the security/immobilizer code.

the lady on the other hand was very kind and explained in detail (i pretented as if i was not aware of this!) how it works and how its activated, etc. she requested me to come to the showroom whenever the car is free and they will get the code changed free of cost.

good move from mahindra, i think finally they reacted to all the reports about scorpios getting stolen.
