      Thumbs up Red Bull ::: My XYLO E4

      Prelude :::::

      So here goes my story of buying the RED BULL.

      Pre- 2005, whenever I used to see a safari and scorpio I was like “when will I get to buy this…”. In 2007 that time my friend bough a safari vx and when I sat inside that I thought what is this man. We have a big hall inside the beast. Remember until then I was used to see and drive small cars only. So in 2009 the urge to buy a safari/scorpio was unbearable.

      After going through many forums it was evident that there were lots if niggles in the Safari( this is all from the owners feedback on the forums) and the service given by Tata. Even thought there are owners who say this, the same owners say it is wonderful beast. But I didn’t want that initial niggles. So my lean towards Scorpio increased more.

      On 25th Dec(that is the time we get almost 10 days leave as it is yearend) me, my wife and my kid were going to my native Shimoga/Sagar in our dad’s car MATIZ and met with an accident( click here http://gearheads.in/showthread.php?9...-in-the-sunset to see the pics and details of the same) and somehow survived it without any major injuries.

      Dilemma ::::

      Post Jan2010, the whole family decided that if we have to have a car then it should be a big car and not a small one. Everyone were against santro or alto initially. Now the car hunt started. So the new one that was decided was a Scorpio. But due to the shortage of vitamin M, we decided that we will go for a 2nd hand Scorpio. But as you all know that 2nd hand ones were pre 2004 era and had run almost 80-90K kms and were asking 4-4.5L min. I was like what????????. I was mainly worried about the chain drives, alternator etc as would have to give from my pocket(4 years warranty would have been finished). That is when I came across frankestien with his scorpio which had run only 30K and even he was asking 4.7L. If he had given that for 4L, then I would have bought that in the month of Feb 2010 itself. I searched for 2 months and I couldn’t get anything in my taste.

      Then the thought of “fate had decided that I should buy a small car itself” started creeping in. So couldn’t come out of it and then I started with used santro’s/altos/icons/Baleno whichever that would come in the range of 2-2.25L max. Many fell into the list but vehicles were in shabby condition. That is when I came across our NIKHILB with his santro. I TD’ed that car and it was awesome and I liked it. I had almost finalized it and even had brought the transfer papers and the next day I had to give him the money, a twist in the tale had to take place.
