Now, what is this to called as, Srini!

You go all the way to Ooty, on a solo drive, that too after a very long time and....... you take photos of your ride and post them on T-BHP!

Now, thats what I call 'addiction'. cheers:

Have a safe drive back home, mate!

Congrats on buying the beast with 'below average' reliability (according to Team BHP) srini. If yours is reliable enough in the long run, be sure to tell everyone here.

Lol @ Steeroid : ` below average reliability`

Congrats on ur bull Srini..this was my first consideration ` Safari in Black` with mods before I settled and spent 9.5 lakhs for my Black verna this month with mods.

How much does it drink? pls share

As pointed out by steeroid , do update on ageing experience of this ship. The post 2 yr ownership reports by ppl somehow kept me off this Noah`s ark otherwise there is no question of ride quality, sheer presence and masculine character of this thing!

Looks unmatchable for an SUV at this price tag though

Cheers!

How much did the Bull bar cost you? Do you have a protective bar at the rear too?
How do you operate the fuel flap?

Hi Pankaj,
It gives me 10.5kmpl.
Lets see,Its a new engine and we have to wait and watch.But as of now its really doing great.

HI KKdelhi,
i have given the cost of BULLguard in the same thread.No protective bar in the rear.There is a lever below the drivers seat for opening the fuel flap.

I am Back in Bangalore today.

It was one of the greatest trip. ME and MY BULL. Here are more pictures of my BULL.

Welcome back, Srini.

Few questions:

- How was the Bull's handling on the slopes? (Did you take the 36 hair-pin road?)

- Did you find any advantage on fitting the deflector?

- Since it was solo driven (I assume), how was the driving comfort? Any body rolling?

Looking forward to your travelogue on this one (some nice spots there).

Lastly, got to say this - Neighbor's envy, Owners pride!

Yes,I took the 36 hair-pin road.......it was great drive and The Bull was fully under my control.

deflector - nothing specific,I havnt specifically noticed it.But My windscreen was comparitively less dirty.

Body rolling was comparitively less than DICOR 3L(tried my brothers one).driving comfort was great,totally I have done 835 kilometre and I did not feel any stress/tiredness.I am fully charged.

As u said its Neighbor's envy,Owners pride is true.Also,all the people on the road gave way immediately on seeing the Bull .Except for some people on the road who envy and try to put down the bull.I let them do that and they finally end up giving way too.

Yes,I will update my travelogue shortly.

yes I enjoyed a lot m3_07.

What do I have a feeling that this is the best 'under statement' made?

You exitement conveyed thru the posts and your eagerness to share your rides photos convey a lot about the fun and exiting time that you had.

hey bgl, now that the deflector is up and running, i again urge you to have a look at your beauty with the chrome mirrors, no do not fix them as yet, just let someone hold them for you at the shop if you visit someday and you take a few steps ahead and turn back and have a dekko.. that's all i want to give you, a glimpse, then you decide when you put them on.. hehe

no man, just kidding, always nice to see a done up safari, mine is plain empty right now, no plans as yet, the re-tint job is the first priority as of now, have been lazy, busy, pocket lightzy whatever :-) can say i am yet to come off the high of the vehicle itself as such, haven't been really thinking of beautification still.

would have to admit, seeing any good post here does mark the day, feel rejuvenated at the end of the day, the spirits do rise high.. :-)
