Yeah, he had steel rims before and it use to shimmer when he goes over 110. Guess he really got fedup and decided to spend the money

There's a parts place in El Socorro that has the filters. I will find out exactly where and post it later'
Other major parts i buy online from www.mahindraparts.bpautosparesindia.com as i find Lifestyle never has any parts. Also even with shipping via Fed-ex the costs are considerably less than buying from the firm. eg
Brake Pad front Firm approx (not too sure bout this price) $1999 India $40 us
Crankshaft seal was leaking $400 + 3mth wait by Lifestyle
All gauge on dash not working (not too sure bout this price)$1500 + 3mth wait
India $25 us for the module to repair
India $70 us for complete packing kit

All the above was bought together shipping via FedEx cost $145us
vat and Duty cost $700 tt
btw bought two of everything just in case and all were original parts

Parts marketing?

No , just a comparison. These are parts that need changing in my vehicle and what it cost me as compared to the firm, who would have had the vehicle down for three months waiting on a seal when i got it in a week. and if i was parts marketing it wouldn't be making sense doing it with the Mahindra .
just goes to show the mark up the dealers put on their parts after all it is supposed to be an affordable vehicle

Engine wise it is rock solid , little things like dashboard controls and a/c switches might give trouble after a while. Drivetrain, tranny are all good
Its a very good workhorse vehicle/fleet vechile and can take real licks

SO If that is what you're looking for. The mehindra is pretty decent

Yep, that's right. Was there in Sept, and they said they not bringing anymore and going to stop support when current parts inventory is exhausted.
