Re: Booked Scorpio VLX BS4 4WD AirBag 8 seater

Congrats on the booking Mitul.
When is the promised delivery date.

I think the alloys cost 5.5k, thats what i had seen in the dealership.
The new alloys were not according to my taste, wish they had gone for any other design.

The extended warranty costs 9,999 with the new car, when i had purchased.

If you want noiseless drive, its Bridgestone, excellent grip.
With B'stone you should be careful on bad roads, as tyres have soft sidewall
Followed by Appollo Hawkz, which has hard sidewall and decent road comfort then Goodyear.

I have never driven hawk with Goodyear.

One with Wanderer the drive was noisy.

The comfort level of Hawkz is good but i didn't like the design of sidewall.
I think your lot comes with Bridgestone, go with it.

D689 is the one i got H/T, they are the Highway tyres.
They are the best cruzers on highways.
But one should be wary of the tyre on bad roads.
As well as grip in wet conditions.

H/L is not recommended as they are all season tyres, which perform well in snowy conditons and not for normal roads.
