OT: Are the bulls supplied to the Armed forces any different to the ones sold to civilians?

I have personally seen some of the ex-Army 500 D's, real bad stuff perhaps even worst than Mayapuri bling bling Jeep's. On requesting test ride of one of the restored ones, person who owns the outlet told us, not to waste our money on the D's and instead advised us to stick to Petrol 350's.. Quote unquote "Yeh tum logo ke liye naheen hain.. chamiya party ka liye hain.. 350 dekho" ..

Even otherwise the DIESELs are not good for city riding.Or should i say for driving itself.Its actually an auto rikshaw (pardon the spelling) and you would get body pain even if you drive 5 kms in it

nopes they are same, minus the bling stuff. some years back Army tried their hand on D 500's, if you see one run away from it as fast as possible.

I wouldnt mind picking up one of these army mpfi Gypsys. But the process of registering with the mst or whatever is painful i am told. So if anyone does buy more than what he wants, please offer one to me.
