Big smile on my face

If there is good news coming next month, I will wait.

Spike Arrestor, I know nothing much can be disclosed, but I will still take a chance

- new interiors?
- better suspension?
- better brakes?
- mere bumper / grille change?

Its a simple equation of BHP per Ton!
97HP /1.5 Ton is greater than 110 or120 HP/ 2 Ton!

Its actually one of the fastest diesel motors I have driven. I kick myself for having had to sell it off!

Have put my purchase decision on hold. Told the salesperson to get in touch with me when he has a date and the price of the new VLX with him.

There is not going to be a new VLX. Not atleast with the present engine.

So choose wisely.

Cheers

:(

Okay, lets see how the mdi crde will be.

Don't know where does the Bolero refresh stands in their launch lineup for the year. They have the world suv, the mini Xylo, the Bolero refresh and what not!

MileCruncher, any launch date / month?

From what I understand, there won't be two engine options in BS4 models. Only the 75 bhp mdi crde, right?

The launch is supposed to be in the next 1-2 months. Therewill be only 1 engine option. Everything will be BS-4 and sport the mDi CRDe engine.
