Is there any advantage in importing the accessories from Thailand?Most of the accessories you listed are available in the showroom itself.
Thanks HARI GANGADHARAN, Its easy to drive around for sure, once you get used to it.
About the accessories, I now feel its better to get the whole bunch from the dealer inspite of it being slightly expensive. Reason,
- Window wiper ended up broken while shipping.(returning on eBay is more expensive )
- Kevlar Gear knob (both ) are for 2012-2014 model interiors. I ve to find a buyer
Hence a waste of $
On top of this, you can't fix these in a dealer garage. so need to find a specialist to fix all these without damaging stuff.
After driving around on Primo for few days I got myself tuned to the way it is supposed to be driven. Considering this is my first SUV and a diesel one at that!
Added few photos with fitted accessories.
Cargo net at the rear is not helpful to till date!
Rear parking sensor is an inevitable fitment.
Rear bumper step guard
Exhaust pipe chrome finish.(looks only)
Fender mirror is a must have. Very useful add-on.
Bonnet scoop- chrome (looks only)
Head light chrome finish (looks only)
Fabric floor mat (freebie) is very comfortable for long drives. Passengers too love the feeling on their bare feet!
After I got the vehicle back from the 1000Km free service/checkup, I was not very comfortable driving it for even 30 mins. My left leg started to pain. Thats when I tried to position myself better by fiddling around with the power seats. Yes that was the reason for my uncomfortable posture. (The service technicians must ve adjusted for their height) This makes a lot of difference on fortuner even if its a tiny bit, especially if its a MT.(use of clutch in city traffic)
There is a huge amount of power waiting to be unleashed, and there is no limitation to the torque at any given speed. The vehicle turns quiet like a petrol motor once past 80Km/hr. You can hardly notice when the turbo kicks-in. Thats how good the engine is without a noticeable turbo lag.
I would say to any potential buyers, don't even think of the 2.5 litre engine, you don't want to miss out on the top end power of the 3.0.
