I don't think so will check and confirm.Are you facing any problems with your xuv?
I hate the mahindra rise clip ,i have to wait atleast 5 seconds everytime before i start my car, as everything is connected to infotainment system,One more thing which i dislike is the alloys they get dirty real fast,they have to be cleaned everyday.
This is after 2 hrs of driving in normal road conditions.

I got 2 special invitee auto expo passes from mahindra for 5th and 6th January, benefits of purple club membership.
I am posting the subwoofer pictures,lot of effort has been put to get this subwoofer and its box made,but at the end i'l say its worth it.[:D]

Hmm so did you visit the Expo then?

Sanjoy Gupta is the Senior M&M Customer care Manager at Mumbai.
He was quite helpful at times when i needed the help in solving the issues with my car.

The sub looks cool, so how is the sound quality now?
The thump & base?

Slowly the ICE bug has started biting me, will be having an ICE upgrade soon on my Hawk too.

http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...-dark-knight-buying-ownership-experience.html

Well u dont have to wait for the rise clip, let it load up anyways and u can start the car in parallel - its not tht bad - yeah it might be irritating to a few i do however have the latest update.

If my car is parked and i have to reverse then i'l have to wait for the clip to finish because reverse assist screen appears only when rise clip finishes. A.c mode,speed,temperature etc also don't show up if the system is off.
