I got the call last week. Still waiting. ...

On the Oil front..TASS gets better realisation from CF grade oil which is still being used for the Indicas (which far outnumber the Safari / Sumo-Grande. )
Thus if any body wants to change oil (from TASS) with CH grade, it is better to check up in advance whether the TASS has the oil.

BTW nice photos..Where did you shoot them ?

Avinash, nice pictures. In the 5th picture from the top, the color looks more like Steel Blue. Any pics of the interiors?

Great photos, Avinash.

Nice lonely roads, aren't they! :-)

Is it because of the photos or what, but it seems that the vehicle is a bit low on height compared to the other 2.2 pictures. It looks more like how a Tavare might look - big vehicle with scooter wheels (!). (Check out the 4th picture)

Do you guys think so or is it just me?

Seems like it but probably due to the unpainted side claddings.

Congrats dude & welcome to the club!!

Happy to know that I am able to find people with cycus grey around. I felt, i was the isolated one with that choice.

Go for alloys & it will change the way the vehicle looks overall. DO NOT GO FOR AURA ALLOYS, not a decent design I would say.

the noise is infact from the engine but its not as loud as it is in the video.. the camera tends to pick up certain frequencies of sound more.
i m planning for the paint on the claddings but i dont know where i can get it done for lesser price it was around 17 k ,in Mysore and the dealer told me that the finishing wont be like EX/VX models. Im still planning for the alloys ,bull-bar and music system

hey m3_07 i have seen lots of cycus grey safari's its one of the hot selling colors .

So, you tried a bit of off-roading, eh? Was that on purpose, or was the bridge really not functional?

Try any Dupont trained bodyshops, wont be a problem with the finish.

Prerna is a Dupont trained Bodyshop, infact the Dupont training center is located inside their premises.
