Good to hear you have found a decent workshop who know what they are doing.

Any chance you could ask them how much they would charge for AC fitment.

Also can they get proper body mount bush instead of the el cheapo one day wonders found elsewhere?

Harjeev,

Your detailing on the workmanship of Mayapuri guys vs good workshop is a big eye-opener for guys like us who are infants in the world of jeeps. I am looking for options other than Mayapuri and M&M's workshop managed by Sudhir Kashyap is a big boon to newcomers.

Harjeev,

You know what,some times one must keep all the options open! We generally dont go to M&M authorised workshop or use MSL parts fearing they might be really expensive! We hear the second hand part rates and come to a conclusion that new parts might be doubly expensive but most of the times we are charged almost 75-80% of the new part cost for the old one.

Also mayapuri guys pose as if they are jeep gods and say M&M guys dont know anything as they have almost stopped working on jeeps. M&M workshop is expensive no doubt.But this is the best place to go if you have budget and you are new to jeeps. Atleast you will not be cheated!

Iam happy you found the right place for your vehicle.

Oh boy, you just hit the mother lode. Having Sudhir Kashyap's workshop for your Jeep is like having Vishwanathan Anand as your chess tutor. Last month when Sudhirji was visiting Manipal he gave a very thorough 3 hour inspection of both my CJ340 and Sachin's MM550 and gave many invaluable tips. The veteran workshop owner/mechanic who rebuilt Sachin's MM550 was also present and he was practically hanging on every word coming out of Sudhirji's mouth once he realised how much knowledge Sudhirji had about Jeeps. He got answers to some really puzzling problems he had for long.

You can see SK on the right side of the blue turban guy.

@Samurai
Yep thats him and the guy is great!!! I am actually thinking of taking my CJ3B to the workshop not for the engine or gearbox as they are working great and i wouldn't want to touch them at any cost!!! What I do want is to get the suspension, brakes, differentials etc checked up!!!
Infact yesterday I realised that the axle cover of my 3B's front left axle fell of somewhere and I have been doing all the OTR without it!!!

So I would like to ask How different is a CJ3B from a CL340? Leaving the Engine F-134 and Pugeot 2112 cc seperate!!!
What are the differences between the two???

Spot on Harjeev. You are lucky to have people like SK

Same reason why I went straight to Ferdi at Milestone yesterday. They have all the necessary tools, the expertise to do it the right way and you know you will get genuine parts

Dear Harjeev / Sharath - today morning you made my day. I know Sudhir since a very long time. He is a wonderful person and he knows his job. He knows Jeeps inside out. I am fortunate and proud that I know him. I have learnt many things from him. I know that I am becoming sentimental because as I am typing this, I have tears in my eyes. He used to work in M&M as a service engineer and is now finally (after a great deal of turbulence), Dy.GM at age around 55. I hope you will understand what I am trying to say. He has been through a lot and he has seen a lot. Finally, you as customers gave him his due. My God, that's life. I think he has achieved CUSTOMER CENTRICITY of the highest level. May God bless you all for what you have just done.

Three cheers for TeamBHP. Three cheers for Sudhir Kashyap. Three cheers for all you wonderful people out there. HAI HO!

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Thanks Bheram sir
After reading you post I have decided that i will take my 3B to Sudhir Kashyap's workshop tomorrow and leave it there!!! The vehicle mechanically is doing great, no issues whatsoever, and I even got the gearbox overhauled a couple of months back.

But I havent got the suspension work done, the brakes need to calibrated and other many small small issues which need to be taken care off which me as a newbie dont know what need's to be done and what's ok in the jeep!!!
Will be heading there tomorrow!!!
