Havent done any scouting yet except for Noida 16. Having a specific shop name would be good. Want something in 5K range which looks like the plastic guards.

It's looking great srini. nice choice and you have also chosen the accessories well, but as pointed out by other bhp-ans' ensure that your Bull 'breathes' well.

Friend....advice here...since I have booked a LX, on some mods the quote is as below

1. Change tube bridgestone tyres to US made "dominator" tyres - pay a difference of 10K
2. absolutely no exchange price quoted on current discs....set of 5 alloys - either plati OR league 19.5K...

Is it good pls??

Just a piece of info, effective January, do you guys know that the ex-showroom prices have gone up???? Since I was insisting on a 2008 make, it it now costing 6K more for the LX

Hi Srini,
Congrats on your new ride. I've been planning to get one for some time now & would like to know whether you got all this complimentary or did you pay for this?

Which dealer did you get your ride from?

No such Luck.

I also tried to register on their Web-site. However did not get the email confirmatory from them.

P.S: I am also not able to log-in using the user-name / ID supplied by me during registration.

Friendly advice to all of YOU!!

"do not ever try to install alloys other than AURA" on your safari. I burnt my fingers doing so. I had to trim the metal chassis a bit & CUT a bit of bumper too.

Now the car does look OK with this...but deep in the heart, my blood boils.

Went to TASS, the next day & they too confirmed that this indeed is a problem.

So ladies.....Aura is IN & rest is OUT!!

You can get a lot of them on the road coming from Ridge circle (Hanuman murti one) towards bikaner sweet house. I did the same way, went to two or three shops decided the pattern i want to take and bargained
