My new Safari 2.2 Dicor Vtt GX 4x4

OTR was 12.66 lacs
Freebies offered were basic accessories, sun film (Llumar) and offer to paint the cladding and bumper black if I desire.

Now some pics

Will write about dealership experience, waiting period, colour selection etc etc. in a while.

But this thread would be incomplete without extending my sincere thanks to
Ndevath, Happywheels, Hrag and all the other Safari owners on this forum who with their experiences, good and bad, made me go in for this vehicle.

Default welcome to the club.

Looks awsome in Black. My preference would be to get the cladding and bumper also painted black. Looks really cool.

Here's wishing many happy miles of driving!

cheers!

Drool! I have a feeling it might be even more drool-worthy if you had taken up their offer of painting the cladding and bumpers black. Imagine an all black beast.

Congrats Hari. Somehow, it looks like a Black beauty rather than Black beast or king.

Oops, is Gowda around?

Congrats LSW. Safari is a great choice. Looks very cool.

Already off-roading with "Registered" sticker still on???

I would personally prefer a complete black treatment to the beast.

Drive safe and wish you many many miles of trouble free driving.

Congratulations. Hope to see some off roading pics soon. I think you should get the claddings painted Black. They'll look killer.
