Congratulations on a great buy, looks great in this color. Not long before we see a picture of your new flame up at Khardung La, huh?

congrats.... even after all these years Safari still manages to look stunningly good. I still want Tata to atleast offer black bumper for 4X4 versions as an option. Body colored bumpers out in the wild is not a good idea.

Congratulations.

BTW the hissing sound with full turn is not abnormal with Safari.

May your ride bring you a very safe and pleasant journey ahead.

Few question: Did you get the new spare tire cover or the old 3L cover?
Thanks Dude! I hope so too. But am too scared after reading so many horror stories of Tata Safari in this forum. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I got the normal Wheel Cover. I guess I like it more than the old 3L cover. After all one need not scream it's a Safari. people know anyway!

You bet! I am so enticed by reading about ADC's "straight from Showroom" trip to North Bengal. However, for last five six years, I have only driven an Automatic Santro and a bike. So I think I'll polish my driving a little with the manual and get used to the 4x4 system before setting out for the moon.

I agree. (no more smiley left for this post. - wink).
But then this looks so much better, I may consider investing in a 12 - monthly mutual fund SIP every year to pay for bodywork. :-)

Thanks dude. In the godown where I did my PDI, atleast 100 cars were parked in a large ground. It took me a mere second to find where my car was. It really stands like a King among all the cars.

Two more photos - can't stop posting these. :-)

Whoa. raj good catch. Turn indicators in ORVMs!
Is it just for new VX or do lower variants also have that.
Tell me, what about the roof AC. Is it same as before and looks like an aftermarket fitments, or have they made it like the grande!

Eagle eyes strikes again!

But I guess, the variant GX and above started sporting this every since the GX was released.

Having said that, I did fail to notice it till I read your post.

EDIT:
Yup, GX & VX has:

infact, now since the side indicators are on the RVMs, they have stuck something else on the fenders (as shown by yellow circle in pic below), in its original location. cant make out what it is.
