I think it was a ECU remap. The technician told me it was a new update provided to the older vehicles to reduce the sound originating from the EGR valve and he also told me that it would improve mileage. Basically after the update my feeling is that the vehicle has become a lot smoother in terms of NVH but i feel the pickup has dropped considerably.Before i think the turbo used to kick in at around 1200-1300rpm but now it starts kicking in after 1500-1600rpm.I am thinking of getting the old setting installed again. I was much happier with the old setting.

It was done at the A.S.S. I have already told the service advisor while taking delivery that it was feeling underpowered but he told me to drive it for some more time so i get used to this setting but frankly speaking it feels a bit lazy now in the beginning then it starts picking up speed slowly.I have asked him to change it back to the old setting when it goes for service next time around.I haven't driven the xylo a lot since the ecu setting was changed so not noticed mileage yet. will update once i check it.

No such rattling noises to speak off inside or outside.But i did have a squeaking noise from the front left suspension which was fixed during my second service by lubricating a joint(but that was caused due to my rough driving on broken roads) . which model are you planning for?

Hey Thanks for the quick reply,
I am planning on E8 ABS Airbags. if get the delivery less than 2 weeks otherwise will go for E8 ABS.. honestly speaking your thread has been very helpful in making my decision ... and finally my dad is also convinced!!!
It is mainly because of the 40 km long trip which we had yesterday in an E4 model and he really liked the performance and the interiors of the vehicle...
Will keep you updated... Hey is the mist silver colour available on e8??

Regards,
Sahil

Hey no problem doncarmaster. congrats on convincing your dad to buy the xylo. I would suggest go in for the airbag xylo even if it takes a couple of weeks extra it is always good to have these safety features and will also help in resale value later on.
sorry mate the e8 does not come in mist silver. I was also looking for the silver xylo, i even went to the extent of talking to the sales manager about me paying extra for it to be custom made and would wait as long as it takes after making full payment but no such luck.so had to settle for white. but i feel white is also good now.what colour are you planning by the way?

Rocky,
How much did you pay for the sub enclosure? Did you buy all the parts from him? Also how satisfied are you with the installation and how much did it set you back by (only install)

I am on the same boat Sahil. I booked Xylo E8(Fiery Black) yesterday with ABS & Airbags. The dealer informed us that there was no delivery of Xylo with Airbags in the last 3 months even one of their order was not dlivered/cancelled by M&M. The delivery time will be less than 2 weeks in case of no airbags but will be delayed if we opt for Airbags. On road cost was INR900000 for wihtout airbags and +23K for with Airbags. The only offer I got was free insurance from M&M if I opt for either Reliance or National but no other freebies apart from extended warranty. Let me know the on road cost + freebies offered by your dealer.

@tried everything i don't remember how much i paid for the sub enclosure alone. all in all the entire installation put me back by about 40,000. i think he charged about 1000rs or so for labour.

Edit:just called up that accesory guy and spoke to him the box cost somewhere between 750-800.
