Thumbs up Re: Experience in Purchasing a Used Safari

AS promised,

i have purchased a 6 bedroom tent when i was in Europe, did a trail today on the terrace of my house, and god it was wonderful.

because i can't put the pins in the ground the tent was in the air may be (1/2 inch above the ground). planning to go to beach again and do the full installation.

Saffari with New Look with Curtains

Please note that the curtains were installed in this summer as we had a long holiday and my Son was in the trip, to avoid excess heat we have installed them, currently its used once in a week in my home town they are still there but will be removing them once i come to India.

Hi Amit,

its a normal Hiker Bull bar which we get in market. and where as the Auxiliary mounts, this is a custom made bar which would fit in between the Gaps of Bull Bar.

and it was my idea which would ensure that the Auxiliary lamps don't vibrate much.

Finally the Beast has been sold today. These were the latest pictures which i had with the beast where i had worked on the Projector setup.

Reason for Sale: Was not in INDIA for almost 2 years and now my assignment has been extended for another 2 years.

Hello

THAT was a very ubrupt end my friend. You actually sold a car since you will not be using it for the next two years? Gracious, is that all the love you had for her?
I would not have done that.
BTW, did you install the racing chip? what was the outcome?

Regards

There were 2 reasons for selling the Beast.

1. Being me onsite for almost 2 yrs and for another 2 yrs extension, family is finding it difficult to drive in city(got a small car for family) and again don't have 2 parking lots so sent beast to my home town,that i would use it when i am back. but unfortunately no service center there, it has to be driven 80kms one way to get it serviced at the A.Service.Centre

2. I have been using this vehicle for almost 3 yrs and no complaints, because of its Age and no requirement of 2nd vehicle when i am not there i wanted to sell it.

i just removed the add to send the beast back to my place, all of a sudden a buyer through a dealer reference and he liked the beast and bingo it was sold in couple of hours(i know that there were some people who don't know about safari came for negotiations and a strict no was told).

when it comes to the race chip i have used it for around 1000 kms when i was in INDIA in July- August and i would say that for a 3L it should be must since the pickup, mileage and the power was improved to 14 to 15%. but when i was travelling back i removed it as there are couple of drivers who will be using it and didn't wanted the beast to get abused.

Just went through your full thread and enjoyed it thoroughly. I think you made a wise choise buying the beast used and selling it after your requirements were met. This would have appealed to the heart and the head.

I noticed you have a nice roof rail fitted to carry luggage. Can you post more pictures and some details of this unit like cost etc. I am planning to fit something similar for my Storme also.

Thanks !
