Default Tata Safari VX 4X4 - 2010 variant

Wow !!! It feels really good to write this thread
I am here in Concorde Motors (Bangalore) about to take my BULL/BEAST delivery.

Dealer experience - Just one statement - I am now writing this sitting in Sales Manager's office room (my laptop though).
Had some initial delays as I was supposed to get this 10 days back. But, it was clearly a mess done at Plant by some wrong billing !
Then, I was asked to speak to UV segment Product Manager of Tata Motors since then, all started rolling smooth. I got almost daily updates on my vehicle, its transit and the phase that I liked really the most was, getting a call from the sales coordinator (Shrinivas Gowda) with whom I started this transaction.
The Product Manager of Tata Motors showed extreme professionalism while handling my case that was shown the best when he made Shrinivas call me on the vehicle readiness/delivery instead of he talking to me on the final success.
Of course, I did call him to "Thank".

Finally, all came good and I only glanced the vehicle so far and currently its undergoing "Sun film" process. Will upload photos as soon as I get a chance.

By the way, I have this checklist from "On buying the car" section and going to take my sweet time to go through them !

Prem.

My first post on team BHP.

I am a Honda City user graduating to a TATA Safari within the next 10 days. 2010 GX 4X4.
This site has been a tremendous source of information and confidence towards the TATA SAFARI decision.
Went through the usual debate of scorpio vs safari. Decided to follow my heart and home minister’s choice.

Need a few tips from recent owners <I am based in Bangalore>
- Link for the PDI
- Good place to exchange tires <where they will give some money back for the stock>
