Not at Vizag.

Here are a couple more from Calcutta, taken on the Maidan. The first shows the Victoria Memorial in the background.

just post you SUV's pics, ICE Setup, and your likes and dislikes about your car...

i hope Mr. pavan doesnt mind cheers:
One more to join you soon.
Let me know you Scorpion's openion about the following.
Any Scorpio owner who has transplanted the spare weel onto the rear hatch door.
Want to know few details regarding
1.Any stability & handling issues.
2.Any rattling issues from hatch door after the transplantation.
3.Any RTO violation by doing so.
4. How the modification is done regarding strengthening the hatch door.
5. Positioning of the Number plate after modification.
6. Any problem with hatch door lock with additional overhanging weight of spare wheel
6. Any long term issues.
I have seen a couple of Scorpios zooming past me in Kerala, but could not meet any owner.
Any body having a Scorpio with this modification , please post few photos.
Ray

I've also noticed one Scorpio with the spare wheel mounted on the rear hatch, in KA recently. Stability / handling / RTO should not be of concern (rear hatch mounted spare wheels have also been seen on Wagon-Rs!), though the extra weight on the door will likely lead to rattles and issues with the hinges and lock, esp. when negotiating rough roads. Plus, why reduce the rear view?

My take on this: Not worth doing.

Its fiber and pipe, Rs.6500, I do not thinks its worth for it - It looks good, But the metal used behind the fiber is poor, getting rusty.

You may check Car Accessories, Car Bumper Guard, Car Bull Guard, Car Grill Guard, Car Luggage Carrier, Car top Luggage Carrier, Silencer Pipes, Manufacturers & Suppliers, you may call and ask him to send.

I liked it, because, it doesn't hide the Logo/Walrus tooth. :-)

Hondadue, good picture. I like the green background. You should post more pictures of your ride.

finally after so many months of ownership we get to see the ride of Hondadude.

Share more pictures and let the review come in. Have been waiting for months for that.
