Welcome to the Scorpion(s) family, if that name suits us all. I am getting addicted to the Scorpio and all other sedans and hatches look like children's toys, when I am behind the wheel.Its a wonderful machine. The drawbacks as you listed are the gearshift, the power window controls and added are the poor plasticky interiors, which do not befit its image.
Wish you all the smiles and Happy Driving!

Congratulations Riju. The Scorpio in white looks stunning.

And it is also the choice of most politicians So you will get the benefit of doubt before a policeman decides to pull you over. Buy at least 7-8 rings with large stones and wear them when you drive around. Will go well with that image.

You'll need to control those cornering speeds - 60 is about the upper limit for even a decent turn/curve.

The B-pillars - blacken them, and see the transformation.
Guess the trip starts now ..
Parwath like I mentioned earlier, it sure will take time for the transition. Am already hooked to the torque and there is a real surge which can be felt above the 2k rpm range. Tripping has already started .

Thanks mate , I know these sell like hot cakes in the used car market.

Nikhil I thought the Duelers were better off than the Elanzo's and hence made it very clear to the sales rep that I need the Duelers. However am low on Vitamin M and need to wait.ICE is my priority for now and guess the tyre and alloy change can wait for another 2/3 months.

Well I love that extra attention. Am not exaggerating but this is really true, no autowallah's dare mess around, no bikers coming anywhere close to you, cabbies thinking twice before they honk like mad. I am loving it actually.

Congrats Rj. The Scorpio has priced the hell out of the opposition and is a very decent package for this price point. No wonder it is raining Scorpios on the forum. The white looks great.

Happy motoring..

I think i confused between the pre refresh claddings and the refresh claddings. IMO the old claddings looked much better.

Indeed, that was the reason I booked mine too! Delivery next month.

Now you really need to change your Avatar and Profile pics.

Surprised ! never in my dreams thought it would be a Scorpio!

Congrats! my fav color for the Scorpio. Alloys and wider tyres are the only things thats missing.

How much did the crash guard cost?
