WOW! SS, congrats!

You got the vehicle that many are eyeing for!

Love the tail! This is a deterrent to all those tail-sniffers by itself!

Would you please treat to few more pics and details?

Congratulations SS Traveller on your new buy.Very Happy Driving! But the review is too SMS type.I sincerely hope that you will give us a review thats double the normal, lesser Scorp's, as you have two more driving wheels to tell about.

You got it right! It's a 4x4 mHawk Scorpio VLX Refresh, and yes, it's officially mine. Ex-showroom Rs.10,05,000 at Delhi.

Thanks HW. I really love that tail too! Saves the trouble and expense of fixing an extra metal rod, and looks tough in the bargain too.

Thanks hondadude. Pics and details coming up soon.

Yes, it was all of 10 weeks. Well, it began on 2nd August. Based on some information I received, I walked into the Koncept showroom at Safdarjang Enclave, and asked for the price and other details of the Scorpio mHawk VLX 4WD.

Thud! The sales executive's jaw hits the floor. No 4WD available with mHawk engine Saar. You can take the 2.6 engine in 4WD. But why don't you take the 2WD VLX? That's as good as 4WD... Aapko 4WD leke kya karna hai?

This guy was really putting me off. Or maybe he thought I was one of those guys who walk into showrooms to gawk at cars, not buy them. Well, I wasn't kind of dressed to impress either... Crumpled T-shirt, baggy trousers 2 sizes too large, rubber chappals - guys who looked like me don't buy cars, said the sales exec's little red book.

I put on my sternest look, and told him that the information about mHawk 4WD comes from most trustworthy but confidential sources. Arre, kya baat hai, aap toh Anand Mahindra saab ko bhi jaante honge! goes the guy. Aisa hi kuchh samjho... Would you mind calling up Mahindra's Delhi office and confirming about this?

The sales exec called M&M's marketing office in Delhi and spoke to someone. Flat denial. No mHawk 4WD. I ask to speak to the guy on the other end of the phone. Putting on my most polished accent (thank God he didn't see my attire!), I asked him to confirm with either Mumbai or Nashik first, before telling me there IS no 4WD mHawk. I leave my mobile number with him.

My wife is livid as we walk out of the showroom. You go there and make a fool of yourself. You're acting like a kid. Like the kid who wants the moon in his hands and is upset because he can't have it. Why can't you buy a normal car like a normal person? The smirk written all over the sales guy's face as we left, and his parting comment Aapko hum ek 2WD VLX hi bechenge... had got her especially upset. I go into mute mode.

20 minutes of listening to the radio, and my mobile rings. It's the Mahindra gentleman, calling to confirm that the mHawk 4WD assembly line went onstream only 2 days ago, and how he is so sorry that he did not have the information, and how I could have all the options I wanted (the wishlist included VLX, MicroHybrid, 7-seater with middle row captain's seats and forward-facing third row, extended warranty, and BS-IV engine specs), except that the colour choice is black or white, and engine spec is only BS-III. Delivery expected in 4 - 6 weeks.

My wife has a different look in her eyes. I'll never argue with you again about cars.

On 5th August, on the auspicious day of Rakhi, we made a 50,000-rupee down payment to book the car. Expected date of delivery 19th September, or latest by Dusshera.

How I wanted BS-IV and finally settled for BS-III is another story coming up.

Aha! Now this sounds like a juicy, masala story. Bring it on.
By the way, I did not get this tell-tail. I mean, from that pic I felt it is a small knobby kind of thingy peeping out from the bottom of the rear bumper but not entirely sure. Could you please elaborate what this exactly is in terms of functionality?
