      Goddy's Tata Safari Storme EX. Pics on Page 25

      well... decisions decisions.. this finally came to an end after a TD this saturday evening.


      I had called for the Storme for a TD on saturday morning, due to some meetings at BoltOn, I was not available till late afternoon.
      a quick call to the SA and shifted the time from 10 AM to 5 PM.


      Dealership - Aadya Motors (ORR near Manyata) special thanks to kvk as he had once mentioned this place to me.
      Vehicle - Tata Safari Storme
      Variant Driven - VX


      The details are as follows.


      SA - at sharp 4:45 - sir, I am near your house
      Me - ok.. I will inform security to let you through. come straight to villa ***
      SA - ok sir.


      10 minutes and 2 security checks later the vehicle was in front of my house.


      Daughter sees the Storme and goes.. Nice.. lets buy it.
      Me - lets see.. mom needs to drive it and see
      D - give the endeavour to her.. we will keep this one.
      Me -


      Wife comes out and walks around. she likes the front look.. she is impressed.
      the SA was well informed about the Storme and goes about explaining the vehicle to her.
      W - keys
      Me - yay.. test drive
      SA - sure mam


      sat in the passenger seat and buckled up..
      W - starts the vehicle and the 2.2 varicor rumbles to life.


      so the drive was on!!
      now once you clear the first security gate, you have to take a left, go up a incline and then turn right at a T junction, while going up I see my wife accelerating the Storme.. I thought she is testing the pickup.. storme still accelerating and T coming up fast.. small beads of sweat come on.. still accelerating.. Storme up at 55 kmph.. beads of sweat now flowing down my face.. and kirrr kirrr kirrr kirrr she turns right at the speed..
      Me - baby.. slow down
      W - why? I am testing it.
      Me - its an SUV
      SA - probably fainted in the back seat by now.
      W - so.. it has to handle
      Me - to SA - so Mr Reddy.. which is the rear A/C switch.
      SA - ba ba ba ba .. sar.. button below the main A/C switch.
      Me - hmm.. nice.. switch on the rear A/C.. comfortable now?
      SA - yes sir.. nice driving madam.


      so after a long drive through some good roads and some non existent ones we come back home..


      SA - so madam. did you like it.
      W - yes. which version is this.
      SA - Madam the VX 2wd.
      W - I prefer the EX. what is the difference between the two?
      SA - EX will not have the Airbags, No Alloys (comes with steel rims), No electric foldable RVM, no leather seats.
      W - rest remains the same?
      SA - yes mam. all vehicles come with 4 wheel Disc brakes, ABS, EBD.
      W - that is good. turns to me and goes.. EX in White for me.
      Me - Done.
      SA - sir, shall we seal the deal.
      Me - Yes. how long for an EX delivery in white.
      SA - sir. 20 days.
      Me - ok. book it.

      So all the guys who had recommended the Safari Storme to me.. Pat yourself on the back.

      Will update more on the Finance and booking details as all this happens today.

      Cheers!!

      Godmother will be very happy now. Luckily it is not a 4x4 or else she would have been on 4x4 track on sat/sun

      Phew - This part is good as the front looks of STORME is always biased (some like but some do not).

      What color was the TD vehicle? Any auspicious reasons for white. I think the BROWN is a killer.
      Again its Godmother's choice I guess
      I think White is quite a common color like politicians and there is no drooling factor !!!
