I was under the impression that Zap mode is where most of the people would want to stay at. Is that not the case?

Can you share tips about which mode you engage in under what kind of conditions? Thanks.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Just received my Z6 D AT today from Harbir, Chandigarh.

The going is good!

However....

1. Does the top model have better tail lights with a vertical DRL of sorts in it?
2. There is no android auto on the stereo! My heart sank! It's there in the brochure, but when I connect a USB cable, it says device not supported.
3. Most of the accessories were out of stock.
4. The tail bumper comes with chrome! Not that black plastic. The door handles are also from the Z8, in silver. The plastic dash looks awkward though.
5. Karol Bagh, here I come. Any recommendations? I only know thar modifiers.
6. Fog lights - do they need stalk replacement?
7. Auto AC - any retrofitting possible?
8. Additional speakers (from 6->12) possible?
9. Going with an MLD once Dhanush confirms!
10. Crappy Bridgestone ecopia tyres. Swapping tomorrow. Any recommendations in Chandigarh?
11. Looks like I can go with aftermarket ventilated seats now. Glad I didn't Z8.

Thanks in advance!

Parting shot..

Congratulations for your beast wooka 👍 For modifications and accessories in Karol Bagh, just type venom and scorpio-N in YouTube and you will get several hits of Jai Auto, who has modified several Z4s to higher versions and seems to have a good knack and understanding of the N. Address and numbers as follows - CHAMUNDA BHAI - 9899131069, SONU BHAI-8130815325, JAI AUTO RAMA ROAD, 53B/20 Industrial Area , Rama Road , New Delhi-110015. Disclaimer: I don't own an N nor have I been to Jai myself for any of my cars ever nor do I know him. Sharing with you purely on the basis of my research on the N and ranom modification videos via YT. All the best 👍

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

This is perfect. Thanks so much for your inputs brother!

I just swapped my (horrible) Bridgestone oem 245/65R17 tyres for 255/65R17 Yoko AT tyres WITH Mahindra original alloys at Batra Tyres in chandigarh for a mind boggling price. GST billed! I can highly recommend them.

Congratulations. I am also awaiting my Z6 delivery from Harbir.

- Can you send pic of plastic Dash?
- How much did it cost to sell your tyres? I am looking to upgrade to 18 inch wheels with Mahindra Alloys. Do I need to book in advance?

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Anyone has any work around for the pathetic Dealer experience, they are not warm and welcoming especially to Introductory price options. Dealer in question - Raj Mahindra , Mohali

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Today, I had completed my PDI for my Z8 AT 4WD.

I found a peculiar issue with the rear AC vent. Of the two rear vents, the cool air is coming only from one of them at a time. There is always normal/ambient air from one vent and the cool from the other. They alternate as per the toggle switch.

The sales person said that his is normal behaviour.

Can someone confirm that this is indeed the case?

TIA

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Good write up mate, I just wanted to know a few things about the car,
1. Is the sluggishness of the infotainment system too much on a daily use?
2. How is the space in the third row of seats?

Thanks in advance, Happy and safe motoring!

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

The Scorpio N is a handsome vehicle. No doubt about it.
But the luggage space, storage management and other design aspects could most certainly have been better.

1. The system is very sluggish and often requires multiple taps to respond. Can get quite irritating. It is supposedly fixed in the latest infotainment Software update, along with the camera lag.

2. 3rd row Space is good for kids and short adults only. I have 2 reasonably tall boys (both under 13) who sit there without complaint. Can see them outgrowing it by the time they are 15.

Update:
Had the vehicle looked over by M&M staff from their Chakan plant. They took detailed logs from the OBD and USB ports and noted down feedback with an open mind.
Infotainment software should get updated within the next 2 weeks. Will keep the forum posted.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Does retrofitting fog lamps from service centre or from aftermarket also enable the cornering lamps in Z6 variant as the Z6 also got the steering angle position in the MID?

Very weird. The Z8L I used was very impressive in terms of system responsiveness in both the infotainment and the MID navigation. It almost felt like using an iPad which is a far cry from the infotainments used in Toyotas, my aging i20, pre facelift tatas etc.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Well in my Z6 D AT delivered two days back, there is no android auto. I'm on 10.22.xx some version. The guys at Harbir Chandigarh couldn't fix it.

It's literally not available anywhere. Plugging in a USB cable brings up a device not supported sort of prompt.

On the plus side, it's snappy. Coming from the Thar 2022, it's much better.

Question - can we retrofit TPMS and / or stock cameras from the Z8? The COTEK said that there is no software based capability locking as was the case in previous Nippon systems.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

I am still in the evaluation stage and quite far away from making an actual decision, however Scorpio N is amongst the top contenders. I will most probably go for the Z8 version as the L option is significantly stretching my budget. Few things I needed some expert advice on.

1. Book it online or offline?
2. The two showrooms closest to me in the order of distance are India Garage (whitefield) and Anant cars (Marathalli) with IC being the closer of the two. which of these two are better?
3. Of all the features that I think I would miss the most is the front camera and sensors. are these available as an accessory with Mahindra? I do not like to fiddle with the original look and feel of the car much.
4. We actually need a spacious 5 seater and very rare usage of the 7 seater car. With the last row tumbled down, would the luggage noise creep into the cabin? This is my biggest issue with the car and hence hesitant to pick it up. Anyone has any suggestions to cover the boot space without compromising the look and structure of the car?

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

I got a call from showroom today saying car is billed. They want me to make a down payment. How much should I be paying if at all at this point?
