    Anyone have the Frontrunner roof rack fitted? If so is there a a lot of additional wind noise or is it tolerable? I've had them fitted to other vehicles and didn't find it too bad but each vehicle is unique

    When we did our Tankwa, Cederberg, West Coast trip a few weeks ago A Scorpio N 4x4 Xplor joined our group.

    What a pleasant surprise. First it averaged around 15km/l.

    I had thoughts about its offroad ability. We travelled about 2000km of dirt and deep sand roads.
    Most of the road in the Tankwa were washed away or were damaged by recent floods leaving some hectic sections.
    The Scorpio N took all this with a smile.

    Down at the West Coast we did the route in the park to Boulder Bay. Lowered pressure at the entrance gate. I went down to 0.6 in case a recovery were needed.
    Thought that the Scorpio might suffer in the thick sand. I were wrong it sail through there with no sweat. Even on the real challenging part down a twee spoor with dunes in the mix it did extremely well. Sea side road from Boulder Bay to Spoegrivier.

    Good value for money vehicle if it can build a name connected to good reliability over time I cannot why it could not become a best seller.

    Yip it appears sorted. Been about 5 weeks maybe 6 and 1900 odd km since the "update" was done and hasn't auto reset.

    That's the standard MRF OEM tyres. They have a very soft sidewall and I was literally loosing blocks off the main tread after a moderate off road track with a bit wheel spin. Changed them to Falken Wildpeak A/T.

    I had Dynapro's fiited off the showroom floor. H/T tyres are not made for offroading.

    Mine had a problem like that. It was the switch when you put it in park. Just wiggle it to start. The dealer can adjust it.

    Yes the tyres were a concern to the owner and the rest of the group however they did what a tyre should do. Tankwa is know for its heavy toll on tyres. I lost a BF on the Cruiser due to a sidewall cut.

    Thank you. This is exactly why I asked, as I still have the standard tyres. Planning on changing them soon, but impressed that they did the trip without issue. I have done mild off road with mine, the anxiety is through the roof as that is the weak point, but they survived without a scratch on sections I though was going to turn into a long long day

    Anyone installed a dual battery system in the Scorpio n? It seems to have the smart type alternator fitted and I am not sure if an intelligent solenoid like National Luna will work. If not it seems that a Dc to Dc charger is the route to go but quite expensive?

    So it turns out Mahindra in SA do sell “OEM” steel skid plates manufactured by Prad4x4 in India. I ordered and received the kit yesterday. Off to Germany for a week so will fit on my return. 2mm thick mild steel with all the hardware. Looks pretty well put together. Will report again when fitted

    Most new vehicles will have smart alternator thus you'll have to use a dc to dc charger. The solinoid type is no good.

    This is great news. What did the kit cost?

    People who drive 80-100 km/h shouldn't be used as a reference for range... The Indian Scorpio FB groups are full of this. Rather use a real world average of say 120/140 km/h which most people will do on a freeway as a "real" benchmark.

    I have just done 1800km towing my Imagine Comfortvan doing 100 - 110km/h
    Fuel consumption were between 9 and 9.4km/L
    I am very happy with this.
