Attachment 2400275

Attachment 2400277

Attachment 2400276

These were clicked at there showroom late at night after the installation was finished. Pics dont do justice to the actual color at all btw.
Looks awesome.
My seal cover dealer (Galaxy seat cover, Royapettah, Chennai) informed me that there's no provision to put leather cover on dashboard, windows and handrest glove box. But I see yours is neatly done.
1. Can you let me know if it required opening up the dashboard significantly?
2. What was your expense? ( I was quoted 15k for seat covers with top quality material available but excluded for dashboard, windows and handrest glovebox)
Your inputs will be really helpful

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Dear Forum Members,

I booked a AX7L P AT in Aug'22. The delivery date in Mahindra Customer portal at the time of booking was indicated as Jan-Feb'24. The date in Customer portal has remain unchanged since then. However, today I got a email from my dealer that customer promise date is 23rd Oct'23. Both the pics are attached. Which of these dates is more reliable. I need to plan a domestic trip in Dec'23. Will decide the mode of transport accordingly.

Based on my own booking and from what I have seen for friends and others in the forum, you should be normally have your car ready for delivery in next 2-3 months. To be honest, it does not make sense to rely much on delivery date/promise dates, good news in you'll get yours much ahead of time.

Every month, the SA will get an updated timeline and they are the most reliable. The timelines on the portal are not as dynamic as the updates SA will have. So, please check with SA after 7th of every month. There will be significant movement in delivery timelines after you complete 6M of waiting.

As fellow forum member indicated, the delivery should happen much earlier than the portal timelines.

Agree with others, neither of the dates are reliable and chances are higher that you will get the car sooner. Pro tip: continue talking nicely to the showroom people

7OO overturns and driver claims car steered outside itself.

I strongly feel car is not at fault here but the driver who might've mistaken the use of ADAS to be independent rather than being just an assist!

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Finally I will be taking delivery of my midnight blue AX7L D AT this Sunday. Will be writing my experience shortly. Meanwhile, I wanted some advice regarding which accessories to get and if getting a ceramic coating is worth it. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Personally I found the below Mahindra accessories good in quality and worth the price:

1.Mudflaps
2.Side footsteps
3.Illuminated scuff plates
4.Screen guard
5.3D mats

How about the rain visors and chrome liners?

From what I read on this thread, mats are getting a mixed review.

I am very happy with the 3D mats - quality and fit, it doesn't show up the footmarks from shoes easily as well. I personally avoided any accessory that requires sticking on body with 3m tapes or glue so would not be able to comment on rain visors and chrome liners.

I have installed the 3D mats from M&M. While the rest of the cabin mats seem to be of fairly good quality, I feel that the mat for the boot in 7-seater mat sets (whether 3D / 7D, they all have the same type of rubber boot mat unfortunately) is of very poor quality. The rubber is very delicate and seems prone to thermal and mechanical wear and tear. Mine has already got cut marks from suitcase wheels. So flimsy is the boot mat that, I suspect, it may even melt in the famed Delhi heat! I tried to get the boot mat replaced from the dealer. Initially, they refused to admit that the boot mat is of poor quality. Then they gave the excuse that the mat comes as a set so they are unable to replace just one mat from the entire set. So, now I plan to look for a sturdy aftermarket replacement mat for just the boot space. In case someone has found a good alternative, please drop a note here.

Rain visors are grossly overpriced at M&M. Rs.5400 if I remember correctly. Got 3D mats from Pharaoh and the Rain Visors with a chrome strip installed at Hot Tracks, Victoria Road for Rs.11,000 or so. The mats are great quality and are super easy to clean as well.

Thanks, dashboard/door trim leather wrapping can be done easily by a good installer. YouTube has hundreds of videos documenting it.
Yes the dashboard needs to be opened up but with experienced staff its not a big hassle.
I was quoted around 26k for the whole package (5 seats + Front Armrest + Steering Wheel + Dashboard and Door Trim) but i got a little discount as my friend who was with me knew the owner. Got a warranty card/bill for peace of mind.

I got the following -

Screen Guard : Will not recommend it as its matte finish so the screen looks very dull plus the touch response was not good. I replaced it with a glossy protector from Armour Guards and the results are much better.

Mud Flaps : Recommended

Scuff Plates : Got the non illuminated ones (Design A ) as i already had plans to install ambient lights. Recommended.

This was quite scary.

Has anyone experienced this issue? Is this kind of a braking experience common in this vehicle?
For people moving from older cars to XUV 700-it has several systems like Electronic Brake Prefill, Hydraulic Brake Assist, ESP etc. Further, which system gets triggered depends on the context at braking time so braking is a bit less predictable. In my Alto the default way of braking was to start with some pressure and increase it based on how quickly I wanted to stop. In XUV 700 I tend to start braking harder and then ease off if I feel I'm braking too hard.

I don't think XUV700 has break assist. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, will be great if someone can share potential rationale behind not providing break assist in XUV700 when lot of much smaller cars support it.
