Folks, has anyone used the diesel injector cleaners like STP on XUV500. Assuming it should do no harm if used once every 10K km or so?

Why is this additive required? I have driven the car for a lakh and didn't find loss of power. I had used cleaner once by mixing with fuel and it resulted in black smoke after a month and I had to get it fixed at service centre. Mahindra doesn't recommend additives.

Won't cause any issue at all. Use it at 1ml/litre, should be okay.

I use System-D once every 2 full tanks.

Check with Sireesh Auto, Hosur Road. They give good deals on the vehicles. You can go to their website and put an enquiry.

Hey buddy, so what did you finally ended up using for the net in the boot? I am having a similar issue where I have the net but no hooks in the boot to tie them to.

I purchased a net from Amazon India that came with round "hooks" and screws. Since I am not willing to drill , i am using a 2 way tape. It is a challenge to maintain grip however, as the plastic interiors have some texture, so an overenthusiastic security guard in office ends up pulling down one or two of those hooks if he reaches too far into the boot during the mandatory checking while accessing the parking lot.

Hello everyone

I recently completed 1 lakh kms on my XUV 500 W10 AT. It ran on stock bridgestone tyres for these lakh kms without any problems.

Now, its time to change them so i need suggestions.

1) Should i stick to same brand or is it better to change to some other? Suggest if so.

2) Any need to change the dimensions in case it can lead to better ride?

Thanks in anticipation.

regarding your first point, I have seen good feedback about Michelin from other members on the group. They have lesser tire noise vs. Bridgestones

For better ride comfort, the side wall height is already pretty big on stock. Newer softer ones from MIchelin will surely help.

Thanks for the reply. Any idea about Apollo tyres? How are they in comparison?

Apollos are surely better than rest of Indian brands but based on my experience they harden more with time than Michelins. So Michelins remain softer and will give more supple ride through its life vs Apollos which will get hard after few years of usage.

XUV stock tyres in lower variants used to be Apollo Apterras. Not sure what is the current situation. Pretty below average tyres and were comparable to the JK Elanzos.

Bridgestone Duellers are nice. Last long and no serious complaints.
Michelin Latitude would give better and silent ride, but would not last long.
I am currently using Goodyear Wrangler and they are holding up decently well after 20k Kms.

The Retrofit Sunroof

So, I know this post is a late one. More than 6 Months actually.
But wanted to ensure the quality of product before I can confidently recommend/ put it up here.
Nowadays, the sunroof has become one of the most sought after features in all car segments.
In 2016, when I bought my AWD XUV, chose the W8 AWD over the W10 FWD sunroof version and have been wanting one since.
In Jan this year on our Maharashtra XUV drive (at Saputara), that look from the balcony and seeing only my cheetah without the sunroof finally pushed me to get it done.
After lots of calls with the Webasto team , a fair bit of Rn D, decided to go for it.
The fitment was totally customised and that made it even better than the original.The job has been really well done and there have been no leaks even in the 2nd month of Mumbai monsoons currently.
Also, this one slides out so no need of the drainpipe and the chocking drain problems and leakage.

Sunroof details :
Make: Webasto
Model No: NSG 300 Automatic.

Let the pictures do the talking.

The look that got the installation in motion : Note, mine is the Silver XUV.

The view from inside.

The final look. Note, the sunroof has been pushed more to the rear so as to not be a distraction to the driver.

A friend of mine owns a 2015 w4 xuv. The current infotainment system in the car is quite pathetic to look at. Also, he used an additional screen clipped to the rear view mirror and due to the weight, the clips of the mirror broke. We discussed that it would be better to fit a touchscreen unit so that it would uplift the ambiance and act as a display fir the reverse camera.

After looking at the current system, I could sense that it would not be that easy as the entire frame and the unit seems seamless and it's not attached with locks, clips and screws. I may be wrong here. Please throw some light on how this unit can be removed and a touchscreen system would fit in the space.

We are not looking at android system but branded products such as pioneer and sony.

I still have this issue... The high beam throw is towards high mounted sign boards and trees.... Despite several adjustments, it never gave me satisfaction. The guide board is not really helpful.

Apparently my high beam automatically start focusing upwards after few months usage.

Do you have any resolution for this now?
