Congrats!! starter. Maruti should start selling the Gypsy commercially again. The only thing thats there in showrooms is Vitara which IMHO is not an off-raoder. In that segment there are many others which are better. I really think Maruti should launch Gypsy again and the esteem also may be with the Swift DDis engine. Looking forward to your detailed dealer review on how you got a Gypsy from Maruti.

Congradulations Deepak,
On the purchase of a New Gypsy king, very few people can actually do what they dream off ( Owning a brand new Gypsy king).
Do you plan any mods in the near future?

Hey rr_zen,
The wait was about a month and a half and the on-road price was about 6.3 lakhs. Thanks for your wishes.

Thanks a lot for your message.

Dear Arishi,
Thanks for your message. I wish too, Maruti starts selling Gypsy again and Mahindra starts selling 550/340 again. But i do not know if they would ever pay heed. Anyway, atleast Maruti is still delivering Gypsies.

-Sathya
Dear Sathya,
No major mods actually. Have a simple ICE setup. Have changed the OEM tyres with BFGs. I've to do something about the suspension. If you are moving from a car to a Gypsy, it is like CFLs or some sand ballast, not sure as of now. Will mostly go with CFLs. Other than that, nothing else Sathya. Thanks for your message.


I shall definitely post some pictures tonight. I am sorry for making you all wait.
Cheers Everybody,
Deepak

Seen many people having GYPSY as an second vehicle, one needs to have a BRAVE HEART to own a NEW Gypsy as a primary thing. You are one among them.
I can understand the pain in convincing your family for selling a hatch & purchasing new one.Thats the spirit.
This shows Team-bhp is dominating even in the house.

CFL is the best & economic way to go for.
How abt AC & PW steering?
First comes AC. Else your family will curse you for making them boil, better not to remind them of FUSION.

Dear Ramsagar,
Thanks, you atleast called me a Brave Heart. My mom thinks am INSANE
AC is definitely on the cards, but am scared about warranty and over heating issues. As of now, am able to live without AC. Am sure, i would need it in summer.
Buddy, don't remind me of this comparison to Fusion. One small undulation i misjudge on the road, and i have an earful. I really mean a small undulation. If you misjudge a road-hump or a pothole, for sure you would have some slipped disc patients in your car!
I am getting used to the steering now. I can manage without power steering. Do not want to add anything which would affect its reliability unless its a must need Ram.

Rudra Sir, Yes, you are right. The colours that you can see in the website are White, Red, Blue and Silver. Through the dealer, i got to know that they also have Harvest Green as another colour.
What i meant with no choice of colours is, i booked a Green. Dealer used to call me every second day and this used to be the conversation.

Dealer: Sir, sorry.. Green is not available. Do you have any other colour in mind (he means, among those mentioned in the website)
Me: Ok, if not Green, maybe you could get me a Red.
Dealer: Ok Sir. I will tell you when the car is in the showroom.
Me: Thanks

(After a couple of days)
Dealer: Sir, sorry.. Red is not available. It is only for Rally vehicles.
Me: No, the site says its available.
Dealer: No Sir, It is no longer available. Maruti has stopped it (I really had no answer for this statement, and he was using this everytime i ask him a question for which he has no answer).
Me: Then what should i do?
Dealer: Sir, Green? Green is ok with you? I'll try to get you green.
Me: Ok, whatever..

You know, i need to change my whole imagination from Green to Red and Red to Green. Since there are not many pictures, i used to look at Red Swifts & Green M800s, and used to morph a Gypsy structure on these cars and used to imagine that this is how it would look like

After another couple of days..
Dealer: Sir, Green is also not available.
Me: What do you want me to do.
Dealer: Sir, are you particular about the vehicle or the colour. Vehicle right. Just leave it to me. I'll get you a Gypsy in white colour.
Me: Fine, do whatever and please don't call me to ask which colour i want..

Finally, i got a Red colour, after some hazaar phone calls to Maruti Delhi, Maruti Bangalore, My dealer. That's the story Rudra Sir.

Cheers Everybody.
Deepak

Congrats Starter on your new purchase. I always wanted a Gypsy.But the space and the ride are always not giving me enough courage to go for it. Could you post some pictures for us to enjoy please?

Congratz! Looking forward to a detailed review and buying experience.

Just yesterday we were discussing and checking out MUL website for Gypsy. I somehow liked the silver.

Dear Rudra Sir,
I could show it to you whenever you would have time.
I will PM you my home and office location and my phone number.
This rain has made it a little dirty. Will wash it before you drive her

Dear Jaggu,
Thanks a lot for your wishes. I will definitely update this thread with all the details.
I liked Silver too. But, Fusion & Gypsy, both in Silver. My mom would've never stopped abusing me for selling away Fusion
Also, if the dealer hears Silver, i guess, he would give back your money.
No, but seriously, you are right Jaggu, Silver does look good. I've seen one car on google with some NZ registration which is sort of a darker silver. It looks brilliant with white hard top.

Absolutely true with this Green colour Shakir. I guess, Rossi's Gypsy is the Harvest Green colour.
Regarding Fusion's picture: I was on the way to some Adventure Camp. I lost my running board by the time i reached the camp

Cheers Everybody,
Deepak

Dear Babu,
Yes, it was me and i did see you and your Jeep. Infact, we did wave at each other. I did not attend the OTR since i had not run in completely. But, enjoyed it very much looking at your pictures and reading your posts.
By the way, you could call me Deepak. Thanks a lot for your wishes Babu.
