TATA Safari 4X4 [evil]

Ya i am loving its performance right now .


actually M800 was also our first car long ago . sorry i don't have pic of my old M800 but you have loved it way we had done lot of small modification

actually first i didn't knew about alignment problem because bad road infront of showroom so later i saw its pulling too much toward right so i got alignment checked but now its pulling little bit toward left but but not tat much
They gave me new tire atleast seeing them they can easily go till 50k KM
i think i might have to get weight stuff to see if it fix its wobbling issue

@Mod Please add these picture in first post also add this information
I forgot to tell you guys got new Tire all 5set and New battery from maruti [evil]
Hi Mastersquall,

Amazing indeed, The conversation you had with the Tru Value Rep has yielded you a good one with good bargain. They indeed cheat a lot by quoting a lot more than its worth. But the 800 looks really good.

I bought an Estilo last year at True Value Bangalore which we bargained and was ok with the price we paid for it but now felt I should have known you earlier to get some tips on striking a deal.

Well, I am restoring my old Omni too, would appreciate if you could share your inputs on it. It's now a type 3 Omni, The link is below,
