Neat in white!

The headlight, they seems to be too white, is it? How was your experience using them in the rain?

They look fine, its not too white. Felt quite comfortable in the rain. Have never driven on Hi beam as they point way too high. It might be difficult to see on Hi beam in teh rain, will check it next time and let you know.

I have a pic of the headlamp adjustor, but I think it will be very difficult to do the adjustment myself.

But why you have to do it yourself unless untill you want to do it just for heck of it.

Take the safari to TASS and let them do it(its takes 5 mins and free)

And during that observe how they do it and say OK only when you are completely satisfied.

True! Best is to take it to TASS and let them do the adjustment. While they are doing it, observe, so that the next one, if required, can be a DIY!

YES. I'll do that this Saturday. Seems to be the best option.

Its a piece of cake once you know the details and have enough level surface available. I am not sure how many T.A.S.S know the correct method of measured leveling (most work with assumption/ judgement). My SA knows it now, after I made them do it for my safari and has a documented method, which he uses for all E4 headlamps now.

If you plan to goto T.A.S.S, I can share that for your reference. let me know.

Dear Dadu, you would be a life saver to share the document with me. I have already spoken to TASS and have fixed up a time for getting my lights adjusted on Saturday.

Dadu you can be life saver for a lot of people! I have asked the TASS a lot of times to focus it right but in the end they do something or the other and I get into trouble. The TASS is coming home tonight for a trial run and I can show it to him.

It's done, i have posted the refined version of it here (TechSpec® : TATA SAFARI DICOR 2.2l HEADLAMP Level Adjustment), taking out the unnecessary details. Sorry for the delay as was quite busy with work yesterday.

Default Sorry for the delay...



Sorry, was out of office and the internet for a couple of days.
The high beam indeed is too high and will have the oncoming traffic fuming at you. It can certainly be adjusted using the headlight adjuster that you have mentioned in the pics.

It is pretty easy and following Dadu's document should also help to make it easier. Try that and you should be ok. If the issue still persists, please put a photo of the headlamp from the front with the HID switched off during the day and I will have a look at it.

Thanks Dev. I am going to TASS tomorrow to get the beams adjusted, and will let you know how it goes.

Default lights & tyres

Today I finally managed to go to TASS to get my lights adjusted. Its best to get the adjustment done in the dark but its a good thing i went in the day as they took three hours to get this done and I had to wait for an additional hour for their lunch break.....

After adjusting and all i realised the Left Head Lsmp would not move up or down when I use the internal adjustment knob. On pointing this to teh service guy, he said its moving a little bit. So i had to demonstate to him by blocking one head lamp after the other. Now he realised and then the whole left head lamp unit was removed and he did some thing with the motor and finally both worked fine.

Anyway i havn't been able to check the lights at night, but will do so tomorrow.

After coming back from TASS, I let my artistic streak show for a change and painted the letters on the wall of my stepnie. they look really cool from a distance, but have to give proper finishing touches. I'm planning to put two coats of paint only. I did the stepnie as a trial and I'll be doing the rest tomorrow. it took me about 30 minutes to do the stepnie.

Sid,

The tire looks great! I am sure once the 4 on-road tires are done, it will be looking wonderful. Will give the tire's an "always" clean look!

Mmmm... Half the day done, hope you got those 30 minutes to do... meaning - where are the pics!!!

Thanks Suman and Dev,

Yes I finally painted all five tyres and also went on a short drive to a place 40 kms away from the city. The ride was terrific and the headlights are now perectly adjusted.

Regarding the pics---- big problem. My 8 month old son threw my digi cam off the bed yesterday . Now the lens dont move and i guess will have to buy a new one soon as no one repairs these Sony digicams here in Bhubaneswar. Will try and take some from my cell phone and post, but these pics don't do justice to the vehicle......
