They won't fit right,on the arms that is.
They are too long. Especially driver's side.
Where to search for them,when OEM is easily available and working to my satisfaction. Iam not a fan of online shopping of such items where I have to test the product first.
Why should I even worry about them when all of the above points are there.

I have given you the photos. I think manufacturing maybe done by some 3rd party but on the package it's written manufactured by M&M only.
Obviously, it's some other manufacturer. Driver side cheaper than passenger one, wonder why. Usually smaller ones are cheaper. Seen similar blades in few Innovas, was searching for the brand, liked them, the looks.

Completed a recent weekend trip to Delhi .Despite of very aggressive driving + lots of idling in Delhi traffic + lots of cold start stops, My XUV returned more than 1100 kms in one tank full.I have been observing it since start of the ownership, that if driven in a relaxed manner XUV returns about 1200 to 1250 kms in a single tank full.That is very high compared to its competition cars.This gives me immense satisfaction.
So I returned home without needing to fuel again in the whole trip. Kanpur to Delhi is about 500 kms one way.




after completion of trip trip meter shows 1034 kms.Fuel is still left as 2 bars.

MID shows car can still go 72 kms before empty.So 1034 + 72=1106 kms is the distance it can cover theoretically.Actually it is a bit more than that.

1100km is really commendable. With the kind of performance Xuv has, it's actually magical.
I have once had 16kmpl verified in my xuv last year ,including some Bombay traffic (MID was at 17.2).

I think Xuv the perfect overlanding vehicle for transcending entire continents, ghats, deserts everything. The large fuel range along with explosive performance & Low noise is perfect formula.

Now I get about 900km on my safari if driven carefully. Which translates to about 14kmpl.

In Oct, I was on mission and drove around 7500 KMs across MP. The trip was not entirely highway but mix of good and bad roads, village, city and highway drive.
The route taken was Pune -> Lonar Crater -> Amravati City (No bypass) -> Nagpur City -> Chhindwara City -> Naringhpur (Fill up at GQ) -> and further -> more further
The total distance had covered in a single run was 1023 KMs which roughly translates to 14.76 KM as per my "Fuelio" App. The stretch between Amaravati and Nagpur was done with heavy right foot. Hadn't I done that, I believe I would have got real 16 KMPL.

Some recent pics of my Red Highway king I will like to share here.
XUV is running fine except an irritating service reminder on the infotainment screen,popping up at every start.

I do not know how to delete it.

You'll have to visit Mahindra and get it done on their laptop.
BTW if you ignore it for 1000kms, it goes away.

Thanks for the compliments@kinshuk.arya
Thanks for the inputs regarding my queries @bhvm and @ Kinshuk.arya
I read in Shri JRavi 's thread that he could do that (deleting the reminder by pressing few buttons)in his Nexon. So I thought it might be the same in our XUVs. I was wrong.
