I am on my way to buy the Tank next month. But before buying I have some queries would like suggestions from all the expert members. Will buy TUV300 T8 mHawk100 Manual Version from Pune city.
I've heard the sound quality of the speakers which is very poor, I want suggestion for Amplifier and best JBL speaker
I want to buy it in Army Green color, is it available in Pune (any extra price?)
Also, I would want to fit the Endurance Kit, is it available in Pune
How much does the endurance kit costs, also what is the cost for that TUV logo light on door
I want to know, how to enhance the headlight power, I currently use WagonR and added the headlight cut-outs which make it powerful, need a similar suggestion for TUV. (I mostly drive on nights on Single Highways)
Also, which Tyres comes with the car (Ceat I guess), are those better or any other suggestions for superior grip and off-roading
Can we put in the oversize tires like 16" or a bit extra ground presence
Can we add an extra fan (AC vent) for rear seat? There are some options available on Amazon, but I'm not sure about fitting and performance
Also, I want the best possible and comfortable seat covers, please suggest
And any other suggestions and questions before buying the Tank
I would really be thankful for your expert insights on the above.
Hi I am also from Pune and bought Bronze Green Tank. No extra cost for this but depends on availability. You can ask the dealer to order this. In Pune it will be easily available as the manufacturing plant is in Chakan. Dealers will try to sale the other colours as they are lying in their stock yard and want to clear those. Advantage of Bronze green color - independence day edition, manufactured after Aug 2016 so most of the minor issues are fixed in this version. It comes only in 100HP T8 so good pickup. I got the deal at 10L from Sanhyadri Motors Baner.
Tyers are Ceat. You can calculate/make out the manufacturing date of car from Chasi number and for tyres from tyre manufacturing date. Refer Team BHP detail review and pre booking and pre delivery inspection guidelines.
Endurance kit costs around 60K not sure it is available in Pune or not. But the youtube video seems shot in Chakan on MH14 vehicle red tank.
Don't install additional things like middle row AC or headlight modification or big tyres in tank. It will be problematic for warranty and insurance. Don't make any changes that will need interference with wiring of body structure.
Pickup and performance for TUV is great. I have completed around 1800km in my Hulk! so far no problem except bouncy ride and while spinning issue at 3-4 occasions. That's not major issue!
AC is powerful so don't think middle row AC will require. Only the front row person will shiver on AC mode 3! Better allow person who have no complaints with AC! hahahaha or can have shawl !
Headlamps are sufficient strong and static bending headlights are amazing. Depending on your experience/requirements do changes in it. But as tank is heighted vehicle light goes straight into the eyes of other vehicle drivers moving ahead of you/coming towards you. So most of the time people don't mess with Tank!
Seat covers you can opt from any other shop at dealer they are much costly! But for dark green tank light colour interior looks good. So I prefer Beige seat covers for my tank.
Pickup and performance is great.
Just make sure while doing deal with dealer, get in writing what you are getting - extended warranty, RSA, 0% depriciation/bumper to bumper insurance in deal. Get this in writing or confirm with Sales Manager before booking. Sales person promise anything to sale the car but later deny!
Also don't drive in eco mode! it sucks! keep speed limit of 70kmph for first 1000 km.
Also instruct delivery person to handle the vehicle carefully they are too stupid! The delivery guy was driving my tank at 110kmph while getting the vehicle from stock yard to showroom and then to my home! it was crazy! they don't bother.
