Sir if i had the captain seats in the back you would not have had a bed you could roll over in or turn side ways easily. The bed space would have been limited with the captain seats.

shortly sir, i am still doing research on the most suitable options. I want a little more stiffer suspension setup, the stock suspension is a bit soft for my liking and driving style. any suggestion gurus ?

Are there any direct bolt on dampers and coil springs for the xylo ? if not i want the one which requires the least amount of modifications possible.

Hi valapad, how much did the ski racks cost you? Are they bolted on or are they just stuck on the roof ones ?

The ski racks and the rear spoiler dont jel too well together in IMHO.

Cheers and enjoy the ride.

@ Valapad,

May i know the Hella Fog price?
Seems to simple and nicely fitted in your vehicle. How about the power of the same?

Camon

Guys,

It has been couple of months since my Xylo dezire started. My Accent is still with me due to the lack of time for engaging in some serious sale deals. Last week I came across an year old (hardly) E8 (Non ABS) with 14K on odo for 8L. Checked the vehcile and found it to be maintained like a gem. Need your suggestions since I am paranoid in making a decision. New price is ~10L as updated by Sireesh auto.

Results .

All of us are really staisfied on the first trip on Xylo. wifey and me driven the vehicle and all of us tried all the three rows of seats. I am 5'9" tall and found the third row can accomodate me well, amble legroom and only roof is slightly close to head.

I have driven and travelled in Innova before. I found Xylo's driving positition to be extremely commanding (while parked in traffic, i was tall as the Volvo driver). Better throttle response. Engine sound is not high inside cabin as I expected. Interiors are better in the Innova, but E8's interiors are not bod (except the internal door handle which really feels fragile).

I have a limited budget of 5L(+/- 10%) plus my Accent CRDi(KL Reg) which makes me eligible only for a D2. Need to check the resale price of Accent in Kerala to see if I can get an E4 in the budget).

Need all your ongoing support when my decision progresses.

engine oil change interval 15k, 6.5lts. 3 free services. around 2000-2500/ without oil changes. With oil change it will bring it upto around 3500-4000/-
