Congatulations, Pankaj on your beast! It looks good in silver. And the rims are outstanding. I think I have seen similar BMW rims.

I am eagerly awaiting your experiences in the city and highways!

I thought leather (seats, jackets, etc.) is preferred because they tend to get not as cold as other materials. I have never had leather interiors, so I really don't know about this myself but would like to hear other's opinions.

Do post detailed pics mate as its a new launch and everyone is eager to see it inside out.
Thanks. yes it does .
And guess what the ABS light come up randomly and stays on till I cut the engine and restart.
Spoke to RM in mahindra, he says it is ok and should not worry.
Any guesses from scrorpio owners if they have experienced somethng similar, cause I am going on a 300 km journey today.

Side moldings are quite slanting, is it the way to put them ?
Enjoy your XUV for long long time.
The mouldings slant down with the curve in the door and kind of accentuate it

But,personally,I feel the chrome on the sides is a bit overdone.Liked the sides without it, especially on this colour.
Thats because like I said the beast is so unphotogenic , its looks stunning and the chrome on it just compliments . You gotta see it in real dude

I doubt if the RM is a technical guy; so I'd advise you to get a 2nd opinion on this from the senior technician at the ASC.

Nope, nothing like that has happened in my Scorpio [touchwood!] and I don't recollect reading any such incident on TBHP at least. Just go through this thread to see if you find any similar occurrence and it's cause: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...tions-169.html (Mahindra Scorpio : Issues & Solutions)

Cheers,
Vikram

It should not stay on, get it checked please. I had issue with random lights flashing including the abs light but it never stayed on and never had to restart the engine. Eventually it turned out to be alternator issue.
Also, check the brake fluid level, I was told that low brake fluid can also trigger abs warning light.
And yes, Congratulations, those alloys look stunning.

Has it occured more then once? The ABS light on my new altis came on after I got sunfilm installed on the windscreen. The toyota people told me to just restart the engine and it hasn't ever happened again.

Hi Pankaj,

How much did you have to pay for insurance and registration?

Didn't you try to get the insurance from outside? You could have saved a lot. Or dealer didn't let you do so? Have been hearing (and personal experience too) that dealers are not letting people go outside for insurance and hence charging all sorts of amounts (in my case its 42K from dealer whereas outside its 20-26K only).

Can't be mate. I got 0% dep from Tata aig for my Altis and it costed me 32k. And this was there top end package with every add on added. Just the 0% dep would have costed me around 28k. And XUV is priced lesser then the Altis so you would have easily saved around 10-15k.

26K is for 0% depreciation from outside. So you would have saved a lot.

Please check Page 44 post #660 on the XUV5oo main thread for insurance quotes. This might give some insights.
