Yup, that's him. No, delivery has not happened. Actually he has waited much longer than 7 months, it is more like 10-11 months.
In lighter vein -
If one can wait for 11 months for an SUV, doesn't that indicate that he actually doesn't need an SUV

It helps that he is in UK since May. No, he wants the Gurkha for exclusive off-roading trips, not for daily commute like me. Ok, let's not go OT, moving this to the right thread.

I was offered the same choice, but I wasn't buying a SUV without AC,PS, and diff locks. So I waited long for Gurkha and then gave up.
Samurai ji, considering that they have re-started production of Gurkhas to satisfy old commitments and order backlog...would this be a right time to book the Gurkha and expect quick delivery ??

What is your opinion in this matter ?

First let's get some delivery reports, and some photographs of the new Gurkha. If my cousin's Gurkha gets delivered on a convenient day, I will test drive it and post the snaps. At least that way we all will know what they were up to all these days. I am hoping Gurkha has caught with modern times and may be offering better seats and fit & finish. But my fingers are crossed for now.

But.... middle of the week, this is going to be difficult. Let's see what I can do.

The Gurkhas have been delivered in Bangalore already.

I think Bolero will be better as compared to the price and specs..New bolero will be far better than TRAX..

Does this mean you have already seen the new Gurkha, appreciate some inputs then, I won't get to see it until weekend.

That won't happen, it is not a TD vehicle, can't freak out on it. I might check the ride comfort on some bad roads, but that's about it.

I'm already in the weekend mood.. will be visiting Khivaraaj this evening and get the detailed specs...
Does anyone know if they are going to give any sorta discount on this! I know its close to impossible, but still want to know as I'm moving ahead with this option, dont want to miss any opportunities if there are..
Also, on the phone I asked him whether he is going to take another 9-10 months if I book now!! He laughed and told me its normally 3 months but I will find out and let you know it may be arranged within a month but need to check.. so waiting for his call and an overview by next monday From Mr. San.
