Re: Booked Scorpio VLX BS4 4WD AirBag 8 seater

Congratulations Mitul , looks like you are getting some good offers from the dealer. We had Apollo Hawkz in our Safari , loved everything about the tyre except the wet grip , anything above 80kmph in rains can be really scary , you can feel the tyres losing traction when going over a puddle of water. If you running is going to be mostly in the highways then avoid Apollo Hawkz.

Thanks Dhaya.

I have contact some seniors to get Bridgestone as stock tyres.

Re: Booked Scorpio VLX BS4 4WD AirBag 8 seater

Which brand HU and speakers M&M stock. How is the performance ?
Well mine are the old HU's, performance is OK.
One word they are not so good but manageable.
I upgraded to the components but the difference can only be felt once i change the HU.
The OE ones you get is from Nippon which are 2 DIN's, comes with Bluetooth.

Want to keep Nippon 2 DIN's, don't want to loose Bluetooth & Volume controls. If i change all the 4 speakers with JBL+woofer & amplifier.

How would be the output ?

I think there won't be much difference, so better remain with stock one's.

For the same reason i haven't changed the HU.

For long drives i would rather prefer mild music rather than boom boom.

I too don't prefer music with High BASS. But sound should be crystal clear. It should not be distracted.

Please suggest Bullbars for White VLX. If anyone having links or snaps kindly share.

My scorpio came with 5 alloys as standard. that was in 2008. have they done cost cutting now?
Yes Raj even mine came with 5 alloys STD.

@ Mitul: I saw the new design when i had dropped my vehicle for service, the new alloys looks like plastic.

You are correct Mukesh. Alloy wheels looks very cheap.

Got a call from dealer saying that VLX 4WD only 7 seater as standard.

Anyone confirm this from your internal sources.
