Great pics. And like raj said, well maintained scorp. The beige shade also has a role to play in that as i guess it must be easier to maintain than those darker shades. And how are those beige interiors ? Can make out from the pics that no seat covers. So is it difficult to keep those seats clean?

Thanks Raj, I try to maintain whatever is in my hands. Wish the mechanics were also in my hands. However, all seems well for the time being after the replacement of the clutch master cylender (the A.S.S. slip says Clutch Bleeding)

Thanks nvldvr, you are right the beige colour is easier to maintain, and the dcals add to the protection so even after 8 months and driving appx 5000 km in the city there are no scratches.

Beige interiers are good to look at but I need to personally clean them every week to maintain the looks.
(the cleaning guy does only the exteriors, daily)
I didn't get the seat covers, planning to do so now, but again cleaning once a week with moist cloth dipped in ezee keeps the seats in good shape.

you said it - all mechanics have greasy paws - law of the jungle

and that miserable sireesh auto in Bangalore - the mechanics are particularly bad.

Ezee is good for cleaning the insides.

Brilliant use Raj!
Taking someone to Airport or back!
Your JBL bass tube seems pretty tough!
You could have folded the last row as well as 2nd row seats to liberate a flat bay.

spot on buddy. it was an airport trip.

i have not checked the toughness of the basstube, while loading the boot this way, i made sure the suitcases do not touch the basstube.

yes, i could have folded the 2nd row, but i had 3 passengers in my car apart from these suitcases. so the second row was needed!

looks clean and simple - well maintained.
i really like the tyre tread...

somehow it seems best to keep the Scorp simple without too much fuss and duffmatics like I ve seen on lots of them here in Bangalore...
