Congrats Riju, this should serve your needs well and hopefully give you everything that made you sell your beloved Baleno.

Riju congrats man !! She's a beauty...I actually heard about your scorpio from Mallik last week. White is a good colour for the MHawk and believe me, its the beginning of a new love story My scorp is 5 yrs old this month, and I love her more and more everyday !! Also, its time for you to get into this thread:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...their-suv.html

Your front nudge bar with the hellas looks awesome !! I have a similar bar (mine is carryboy) and need those lights badly...how much did u get them for ? Please post interior pics as well.

About alloys, I was at Hot Tracks last Friday, and Anil had these one-month old alloys (HR) set that someone had swapped for another design. He was offering a set of 5 for 15k !! Believe me, they were spanking new ! There were also stock alloys removed from new scorpios lying around. If you don't want to blow money on new rims, you can consider this option.

Nidhi we need to talk regarding the alloys. 15k is way too tempting coz the price quotes for new ones were over 26k. Am gonna consider this 2nd hand thingy and hope my luck doesnt run out by the weekend. Am visiting hot-tracks and thanks for the pointer pal.

Mine's hurricane and was a freebie from the dealership. Hella's were sourced by blueraven316( satya) for me. Its the hella rally eye 3003 and I paid 6k for the lamps alone. Clamps need to be fabricated and then the lamps fitted.

Well done Riju

Please be assured that theMag has the potent power to ensure regular rains to keep those farms fertile. If you face a drought, it will be his pleasure to oblige.

ajmat thanks man. Well I guess I would have to use his services next summer if we don't have sufficient water being released from the Kabini dam.

Aahh K1000, I was shooting JPEG, dust, sun, people, fatigue and what not. I was really tried after a 3 kms long walk one way into the track.
Check the last set of pics from the picasa album, might be of some interest to you.

Congratulations Riju. What a mighty change from the low slung rev friendly baleno to this torquey behemoth. Certainly a good choice vis a vis Safari. Here's wishing you miles of happiness on this one too **holds tea cup in hand**.

Make your own road but don't try to take the curves at will like in a Baleno
