It's a simple matter of removing the jump-seats and putting in a 3rd row front-facing bench.
That may be possible but since the vehicle will be registered as a 7 seater in RC, one may face a problem in resale.

agree with what SST is saying, 8 seater is available in 4 wd. and presto - you will get an additional option - HE or non-HE - i.e. with air bags and without airbags respectively.

If Mahindra were into Software, they will get CMMi Level-5 i.e. Optimizing level easily

No, I'm sure 4x4 means getting an 8-seater from the factory and registering it as such, i.e. Form 20 clearly mentions that it's an 8-seater.

ACM, we are both pukka desis at heart. Learnt the ropes on Padmini and amby respectively - so love the feel of gear shift. Apart from that my wife's green nature means she will always choose the fuel efficient option. Believe we will be a bit more FE with manual than auto (dont know if it is true - would like to think so).

Thanks Doc , as you see I will have to do some dental surgery on the grille - plan to remove it over the weekend to get that Garish gaudy chrome out. I hope screw driver and WD-40 will do the trick - any other instruments I need?? Have been following your thread - OVRM demise sadly noted. I noted that traffic in Hyd is not as aggressive as NCR so chances on my kit's survival are higher (fingers crossed).

Somehow these chaps believe that more gaudy and in-ur-face it is - the better. Since I didnt pay a dime for this, I will be happy to pass it on to anyone interested. Will try and rip it off when I get some time. will also send you the checklist.

I am not alone then - you can take it off from the back lights and last seat window quite easily. The ones on door handles - stuck for life I guess. Unintended benefit - you are less likely to get scratches from keys / big rings and fingernails and people tend to pull gingerly. The chrome on the OVRMs - pain - they jar when I close the door shut. Front grill - I am removing one way or the other. It may not be that bad on black - but it is a disaster on white.

As I'm a firm believer of "There's nothing called a Free Lunch", I'm sure the chrome kit would definitely have been paid for in the purchase as it is not a standard kit supplied by M&M. Please do check.

Cheers

Unless the customer get the configuration changed at the last moment at the dealership. I have seen all the Scorpios have mounting points for all the seat, so changing the configuration at the last moment wont be hassle. Only major differences with the ones with front facing last row is the lack of door opener from inside and the rear foot rest.

actually my suggestion was to swap the whole grill rather than removing the chrome. i fear your grills natural luster will get affected in the process of chrome removal and that would probably look worse.
edit: i will make sure i give them strict instructions to ensure that they don't do the chrome work on mine.

you are lucky the 3rd gear in your car does not vibrate. if it does not vibrate now, it wont vibrate later too. i heard M&M is fitting some "kits" in mHawks suffering from this problem, your car must have come factory fitted with that.

an error of 0.5 psi isnt much, is it?



and by the way, i like the chrome grille.

Er... no 3rd gear vibration that I've experienced either. But then, there isn't any 3rd gear vibes on my BIL's 2.6 CRDe 2WD either.

Yours is auto right traveller? If that rattles, by god you ought to pound that box into a grave.

The rattle is alright as long as you dont rest your palm on the head of the lever. Coz once you do, you end up doubting your genetic makeup. X or y or both!

Nope, mine is a manual tranny. So is my BIL's. His is a well-maintained job with over 71k km on the clock. No rattles from his car in 3rd gear either.

Here's a pic of his car being serviced.
