Apologies for the late reply guys , i will revert with more pics shortly (Mukesh Statham, Vipul Sir and Raja bhai especially as they asked for it!)
In the meanwhile the XUV has crossed 13k mark!
- serving me extremely well - this weekend did the expressway both directions 2 times - i was in sport mode so the XUV was really doing well especially on the climbs its a breeze to drive it!! Btw
finally had the chance to get the brake discs and pads replaced - i was waiting for the dealer to have stock and also busy at my end so couldnt get it done earlier.
SO 3 things done this morning :-
1) Front Brake pads and Brake discs replaced to the latest design - the disc looks bronze now than silver and is grooved.
Early to say conclusively the difference but the brakes felt more taut than normal, i will update more once i spent enough time with the new brakes.
2) Wiper motor replaced - My wiper motor was perfectly fine , but mahindra had decided to replace the motors with laminated ones, apparently out of fear of water getting in to it. I am extremely impressed with mahindra for doing something like this before the onset of monsoon. It shows they have a clear will to correct any short-comings.
3) The maps software is updated. There is now a provisioning within the navigation screen to mute the voice. This wasnt there before. The software version 4.0.0 has no updates, looks like things have stabilized finally with the software. There are not much software related issues at the centre.
Some pics attached of the process.
