Please start a initial review thread!

Wrong section to now discuss your initial ownership reviews and experience.

All this, once you get yourself off the vehicle!!!

The foam is a tyre cleaner foam. The are commonly available and work very nice to give the tyres a streaking shine. here is a pic to give you an idea

Sorry I did not take pictures then. I will buy a tyre shine foam in a few days and will post detailed pics in my Initial Ownership Thread mentioned above.

Just cant understand, you said mountain green , while your beast looks stunningly handsome - is this the same color ? Doesnt look green to me.

Also, go on some long drive and post a travelogue. Should be fun reading given your style of putting your feelings down so accurately.
Thanks a lot mate.

I think there were some lighting issues. This car looks quite different in various light conditions. Please check out earlier snaps taken during broad daylight.

Long drive is on the cards. Right now finance has become extremely tight. However that did not stop me from buying it, so I have every reason to be bullish on the drive as well.

This is the earlier AT model.
Michelin India - LTX A/T
You are correct. I checked it out and enquired with the dealer and Michelin people.
They are saying AT2 also has quite decent offroad performance and is much better for highways. Also, At is available only in 255/65 as opposed to my stock size 235/70 R16.
Hence was the choice.
However, AT would definitely have been a better offroader any day.

I love the part about getting up in the middle of the night to realize it is not time yet. Feels like the anxious kid who cant get enough of the new toy.

Happy wheeling man! enjoy!
Hey Thanks Dude!

On the Tyre front buy a 12 V Tyre inflator it is more useful then a jack.
If the tubeless gets punctured it takes days before it becomes flat you can always top up the pressure and return to some puncture repair shop.

Also buy a surv tubeless repair kit in case you are interested in DIY.

I am considering that. In this forum I read about the lack of availability of good 12V pump. However, I will probably buy a foot pump in near future and a 12V one as and when budget permits.
I have gotten a free tubeless repair kit from my tyre dealer. Did not check the brand though. Will buy your mentioned brand once this one is used up or expires unused.

anyways, this dealer you mentioned- tyrex, does he sell alloys of different brands too? or is he just a tyre dealer?
Yes it is Sarvodaya Nagar.
He keeps lots of alloys, but i have not enquired about them much.
Hey... why don't we catch up sometime?

Now time to get some dirt on those tyres & the nice shiny exterior
I am itching to do that.

I am not really surprised about your preps and initial bubbles for the car. I think most of us went through the same feeling. Its just that you are vocal about it.

I remember when I bought my Indica, I used to peep through the window at night to give a look at the car, at the middle of the night.

Enjoy the beast and have fun. Post your initial experience.
Thanks man.
I have started an initial ownership thread and the link is above. Do drop in their and post your comments man.
