Quite a good collection of vistas we're building here on TBHP.
The black looks good. I hope you are able to maintain it in its present color and beauty!
Waiting to hear your driving and handling experiences.
Drive safe and enjoy it!

Yea, you are right, the ride quality would go down a bit.
Check with dealer as it will surely void warranty. Only if its fitted by dealer it doesnt. This is done so that people get overpriced products from dealers and he makes profit.

Congrats on buying the Vista Quadjet... Black does look good but be careful to avoid scratches...

Good luck with the vehicle. Drive safe..

Could we also request interior pics [i'm keen to see your Alpine 2Din HU].

Why would an alloy wheel void the warranty? unless some unusual and stupid terms and conditions set by the manufacturer. for eg:- according to Ford changing the stock HU, with an aftermarket one (read that as a good branded one: likes of Pioneer, Alpines etc.,)would void the warranty, since you come in contact with the cables and the different wires.

This does not make any sense to me. People have the option of going elsewhere.

Thats how it is. Had confirmed with many people regarding this.
I find the conditions absurd but then thats how manufacturers had kept them

ya the rubber beading is a bit problematic. but tatas will get them right soon. the test car which i drove had the same problem and also the lumbar support knob was not working.
they said the beading problem they have escalated to the company as it is also causing leaks.

did you confirm with the dealers or the TASC? I was investigating options for ICE, my dealer said that only the tata blaupunkt systems he sold were allowed, eles the electrical warratny would be void

my service advisor at the TASC went so far as to recommend cutting the door panel to install 6" speakers

Well on Team BHP itself we have lots of Safaris upsized to 255/65/16 from
235/70/16 tyres and claimed warrenty for various things so not too sure of this claim either. In fact there was very few safari owners who are driving on stock tyres ( I am one of them )

Regards
Amit
