@anup saab: Again, great pics! Did you need to use 4H/4L in those terrains?

@anjan: Congrats on your new "Brute SUV" as you put it
Thanks razor , the 2 wheel drive works fine!

Razor, that was a trip that lasted over two weeks. At two places the 4WD came in handy; one where other cars were kind of waiting & wondering what to do about the deluge of slush at a steep hairpin bend and the second when the car was taken for a good wash to a riverbank at Leh. Getting out of there needed the 4WD.
As for 4L, I did not really NEED it anywhere but I do tend to use it on very bad terrain to save changing gears all the time! Slot into 3L and keep going.

I do use 4WD mode whenever I reckon that additional traction can help, as in rainy weather on muddy roads.

Thats good! So we technically dont need 4wd to visit these places during good weather. Fantastic.

Hi Raj, Anjan, I am sure I saw a new M2DI with Micro Hybrid badge at the dealer when I had visited for servicing, the owner was getting the cladding done.

Are the scorpio's used by the call center Taxi operators MD2I ? They will probably benefit hugely from the Micro Hybrid given that these cars spend the most time in stop and go blr traffic.
