Your post took me back to your Thar ownership thread. It was an enjoyable read, you do have a good flair for writing

There was a pic of your dog comfortable and resting in your Thar.
Your dog must be wondering "hmm, where do i relax on this one?"
Thank you - Really appreciate your comments.

On AT vs MT - there was no confusion. I wanted an AT. I have driven enough of MT and Bangalore's traffic doesn't make it any kinder on your left knee. . In addition AT allows my wife to drive the car as well. The Innova was also an AT.

The Fortuner with AT with paddle shifts is quite fun to drive. I haven't driven the MT at all so I wouldn't comment on that. There are some purists who love MT and I think they would buy it but for others and in this price range - I would think AT is the way to go.

The dog in the Thar's thread, unfortunately isn't there in this world (old age).

But we have another one and he's 5 years old too..If any body is wondering then this is a Chippiparai breed (native hound from Periyar region).

Congratulations carrot_eater! Wishing you hundreds of thousands of happy km on the Fortuner. I'd have had one in my garage today, if not for the ride quality and atrocious pricing by Toyota. That brute of an engine is a delight to experience... have fun and keep posting your ownership experience.

Thanks a ton - well the Ride quality is quite good, I have few 100km on the car and my family thinks it is as comfortable as the Innova. To me in the driver seat so far, the ride quality is really good.

Any pointers for same in Hyderabad will be helpful.

Thank You
Hi, you can ask your friend to opt for a Hella 470 Highway beam, which has a good throw and will satiate the need. I purchased mine from Indian De'Cars, Banjara Hills store. I also purchased the additional amber lens cover, as that way my ask for a yellow light during rains and foggy driving conditions. A picture for your clarity is below.

Thank You. have let him know of this. if you can also share pricing for this, it will be helpful.

My friend did mention that he has been following yours and PrideRed's posts and find those always helpful - it did help influence his buying decision as well.

he graduated from Storme to Fortuner and finds that ride quality in fortuner is better at higher speeds and the front row seats are more comfortable in Toyota.

At slow speeds, Storme's middle row is more comfortable.

Checked my Fortuner and there is small play. Antenna seem to be stuck using double tape. Incidentally same is the behaviour in my Crysta too. 3 years and haven't seen any problem with Crysta, So I don't think this should be an issue.

1) He is experiencing "tak" sound from the rear tyres when he engages reverse or switches back to drive mode(audible only when you are outside of the car)

Is this normal or something that should be checked with service advisor? the sound is audible only from the outside and can't be heard from inside the cabin.
Fortuner and Innova lurches forward/backward a bit if you don't fully depress brake. I don't know technical but based on my observation this comes when you don't press brake fully and slot to D/R or P, the noise comes. If you switch to Neutral first, car moves few cm and once stationary if you slot to gear there is no noise. To avoid completely you should fully depress brake before slotting to gear or P.

Hello Bhpians
I have clocked 5000 km in my “Legender”
Everytime I took this beast out for a drive it grabs eyeballs �� like no other
I am fully satisfied with my car and find myself lucky enough that I canceled Ford Endeavour sport.

Hi all,

I have purchased the wheel lock nuts from Farad India and I must say that their products are of top quality. I also appreciate their customer service and support. Well done to Kalpesh and team of Farad India!

After investing into BFG KO2 tyres, I felt that I have to secure them, as they are now falling under appreciating assets category. I was looking for wheel lock nuts and were difficult to get by. Farad India came to my rescue. The 4 lock nut kit has its own key and the finish is of good quality. Installation is simple and straightforward with replacing one each of the stock wheel nuts with the lock wheel nuts.

Some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Hi, got first scratch. On my way to Chandigarh from Delhi, looks like road stones made their mark.
Any suggestion to handle or ignore this? Is com paint spray super white Toyota any good to minimize the impact?

Hi abhi1881, please use anything that can seal the chip off area, of the paint. That will help in the long run.

For this reason only, I have got Supergaurd pro PPF done on the bonnet earlier.

Sorry to be taking this little off topic.

Which shop is this? How has been your over all experience?

There are lot of detailing spots now popping up at Hyderabad. Some insights without the commercial value might help few prospective owners who wants to get this done.

BTW great additions on your wheels. This thread has got me hooked for long. Though I will not ever end up owning one as my commute is 75% in city and the size would mean it is not going to be helpful navigate narrow lanes easily and better half always would need chauffeur

This is Indian De'Cars, Gachibowli branch. It is just beside the Cyberabad Commissioners Office. I am happy with them for the work.

Comp Paint will mess it up in my view. At least that's what it did for my car. It left a huge patch that looked really bad and I had to paint the entire door.

Can anyone here explain how the speakers are placed in 4x4 top end Fortuner. I see Toyota claiming a 11 speaker setup but in none of the post I can spot 11 different components.
