      Found yesterday that navigator side lock (tab)wasnt working from remote or central locking. Sprayed liberal WD40 around the the lock and innards (What was possible without opening door pads). Works well now.

      Thunderbolt made a short Trip to Gujrat. After driving other cars for about 2 months, Man XUV is such a revelation!

      1. True to its SUV name, XUV carried a full size bicycle INSIDE the car. Lots of Empty bags and cotton sheets were used to prop up the cycle from critical locations so as to offer safety and to prevent damage on Interior or bicycle.










      2. No more niggles noticed.

      3. Seems the aggressive performance is returning. I had a some nice runs after the bells rang. Even if for a few short bursts, The way XUV pulls and puts the widest smile on your face, is commendable.

      4. Caught fancy ODO shot in nick of time.






      5. After driving various cars upgraded to 6000k CREE LED headlights (Including my Blue boy and others), The good old 35w 4300k HID kit and combo of XUV projectors seem like an upgrade. The punch and Penetration of 4300k HID along with projectors cannot be matched with any LED Retrofit. I was able to drive in low beams most of the times. Even on the highway. And thankfully, due to extremely well designed glare limiters on Projector, Other motorists found it better to dip their beams as well. Most truckers dipped without asking

      6. I tend to use HID fog lamps on highway as sort of DRL after the sun is up. These are quite bright and offer decent safety factor. Esp since Dhule-Surat highway is in a terrible state with Bazillion diversions and speedbreakers

      7. The Navapur-Surat Expressway unfortunately now has some killer and sudden potholes. Deep ones at that. You WILL wreck out if you hit these at highway speeds. Better be Very cautions. Thankfully XUV has beautiful Brakes and along with Falken AT tyres they grip well.

      86868 would have been splendid. But this is also awesome. 86K kms is too good
      Try walking into YOUR car rather than crawling. For me walking is always best ---GURU SHISHIR

      Brought another cover. This time orange.[clap]
      The orange turned out to be a very cute Peach-Flamingo variety rather than usual bright orange. Very pleasant. price this time was 310.

      did'nt find such covers for my other cars.








      Got another ODO shot-
