checked in hyd and No Discount. Dealer says he can give approx 10K worth accessories. Pearl white is not there in LX and only available in EX with a wait of may be 1 week to 10 days.

As posted in some discussion threads, Will safari be replaced by TATA in 2009?
I felt the grande is nowhere close to the safari.

I am currently trying to upgrade to a safari....

good to see that pearl white has such a good demand.

@chaxy the grande is in a diff segment altogether. One statement "BUY THE SAFARI AND DONT THINK, U WONT BE DISAPPOINTED" its a marvelous peice of machinery

I was told that the Pearl white has been very much launched now in LX as well. Moreover the LX now comes with beige interiors...

Yes indeed there is a wind noise when you hit more than 100 kmph. I found the side beeding come off while the door gets closed and that was creating a gap..not sure though it that is the right reason..any one having problems with the service light indicator..thre is a power drop too..

Is this (the beige interiors bit) official? And is this also accompanied by the proposed 30-35K price increase for the LX that we've been hearing about on this forum?

The "car" has ~ 2000Kms on it now and the "leather" steering cover has the top layer kind of peeling off
any one else have that issue ?

I can back that up...i had also asked a dealer and he said no hikes. Which is quite an unexpected reply as every dealer tries to scare buyers by quoting an impending hike.

Pearl white - hows it gonna look with grey side cladding on LX?

Wishlist for Tatas - provide body colored cladding on all variants now.
