I have just booked a Scorpio VLX mHawk at Koncept as well, eagerly awaiting delivery.

Meanwhile am doing the document collection and rounds at banks for finance.

Hopefully, by next week I too will be proud Scorpio owner in Delhi

Glad to hear. You will enjoy every bit of it.
The finance rates should be lower by at least 1% than what I got. Do read through my thread and negotiate hard on the rates because at the end of the day it is the EMI that you will have to pay :-)

Welcome to the beasty Scorpio family. Hope to see its pictures and read reviews soon.
Hi anjan_c2007 - as I said the headlamps are just OK. It would be good to upgrade but they are Ok nevertheless :-)

car loan rates dropped by 1% ? Is it true for all banks ?

Not all but some of the banks who have reduced their PLR. You can call up and check from individual banks.

Today ICICI reduced its PLR by 0.5 %. Maybe some PSU banks lower it by something like 0.75 or maybe 1.0% (too optimistic ), but these private banks - no way, its going to be some 0.5 % only for them.

Thanks Anjan_c2007. The MRP is Rs.7300/- for the TFT but you should be able to get this for around Rs.5500/-. The price of Rs.7200/- mentioned in my earlier posts was the TFT with the Night vision camera. The generic camera with 'some' night vision capabilities shouldnt cost you more than Rs.1200/-. When I say 'some' it means it will work fine in low light areas. But in poorly lit corners, you may not be able to see a small boulder or a low height brick wall with that camera until you come really close to the subject.

Thanks again passionrider- its a very good tool for a blind person, driving in the reverse gear with no other means to adjudge whats there for him and his beast.

You should get it at 9.25% now from Bank of India for a 3 yrs loan (max 5Lacs) if taken in the name of your wife/mom.

Bank of India car loan appears to be among the most reasonable in the market.SBI car loans may also be available with equally good terms and conditions.

@Passionrider, @Amit - any suggestions on the best shops in Delhi for adding some accessories to my Scorpio? Where in Lajpat Nagar did you get the Chinese LCD? What about recommendations for a bullbar and upholstery? Which are the best places?
