Thank you for the appreciation. I will update my ownership thread in some time. It is long overdue. Will put in as many details as possible for everyone's benefit.

My Tata Safari Storme Ex is 7 years old now. 60000 kms of fun, friendships, adventure and more.
Tyres are still original and I think it will last around 5000 kms more. All parts are still original except rear bumper guard which was kissed by s friends car.
For the first time, this month, age has caught up. Following things went wrong:-
1. Front tie rods had to be replaced as the knob got worn out by mud when the rubber seal was damaged.
2. Bonnet lock cable broke when I yanked too hard on the lever. Opening the bonnet was a huge effort as due to lockdown, all garages were closed and I had limited tools. The front fender had to be carefully removed. After that, the bonnet lock was unscrewed and the entire lock was removed to open the bonnet. As I did not have a long spanner of required size, I couldn't do the easy way of unscrewing the two nuts holding the U lock from the top of bonnet through the grill. Internet was of no help. Nor was the solution found here.
3. Battery discharged for the first time after seven years because of less driving during lockdown.

The minor troubles it gave were as follows:-
1. Front right power windows malfunctioned due to worn out rubber beading of windows.
2. In hills, the diesel torque curve results in delay of a fraction of a second in acceleration unlike a petrol car which is really responsive, which at times almost landed me in a soup as I almost lost control of the vehicle as it slowed down on slopes.
3. The headlights are not as bright as other SUVs and the side headlight feature of Mahindra XUV is surely required.

Otherwise, the storme has stormed through all tough hill roads of north east india, highways of UP, rajasthan, gujrat
Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab haryana NCR agra lucknow pRayaGraJ...
It's a pleasure to drive, a pride to own and as comfortable as mothers laps...
Salute to my Safari Storme.

Safari storme 2013
VX 4x2

When cycling though the different modes in the MID,
Instead of showing me any temperature reading it shows “OC” on the display.
Does this mean 0 C?
Since my car is a pre facelift, I’m assuming I had a sensor fitted from the factory.
Can someone help me with how to get an actual temperature readout, if possible.

The temperature sensor got removed somewhere around 2014. And since then the MID kept showing 0c because the software for it was not flashed. Did your car previously show a temperature here? If yes - that means the ambient temperature sensor died. If it has never shown anything other than 0c - the car never had the sensor.

You can pick one from the ASC or boodmo.com & install it. This post might be helpful for you -
