11K Kms and no issues . Got a call from Tata motors as well as the dealer . The front suspension springs were replaced under warranty . On enquiry they said its a proactive measure as they had complaints of some oil leakage in some storme's . Overall the beast is running well with 4x4 being used every weekend . Attaching 2 pics of the beast

Your Storme is looking is really good. Glad to hear that you have not faced any issues. The front suspension spring replacement is a secret recall or what? Are they doing this for all Stormes or certain batch?

Looks like you realized that you should add the 'got bBHP?' sticker between the 11k and 13k readings. Don't worry, the stickers are only enhancing the beauty much more.

Wishing you many more happy miles.

Cheers!

Thanks . I was told that all initial batch of storme's have been re-called for replacement of the front suspension springs. This seems to be proactive measure after they found leaks in some of them .

A leak in the spring??

Also, can you please post pictures of your gear knob in its current condition? I have seen the gear knobs of the Storme losing their beige cover on all test drive cars and hence want to take a second look at yours.

Finally, thank you for maintaining the most up to date Storme ownership thread on TBHP.

Planning to dispose off your storme in 2-3 years? If not, make sure you clean underbody after every outing. Salt water and cars do not mix very well.
Even with underbody rust treatment, if you venture into sea water, make sure underbody gets a thorough wash

I thought it was some beach. That said, how clean is the river. Are there industries upstream? If so, then go for an underbody wash (even if not fully thorough) after every dip.
Also, open your tailgate, and spray WD40 or apply grease along the lower edge. Tata metal edges rust fast. Appying spray every 15 days will ensure long life.

Its natural territory of KRS Dam in Mysore. Dont think there are any industries.
Some how strangely for the dam waters here, they are referred as back waters. A term which is mainly used for sea waters.

@Fortuner71

Nice to see Cauvery full. Some thing which we only see once in a while!

Thanks TSK , yes will do as adviced. River is pretty clean and these waters are the backwaters from the dam .

The beast looks even more majestic. How did you mount the brackets for the lamps and installed the switch? Was any drilling or cutting required in the bumper and dash board? Please share some installation pics if you have.
