Thanks Harjeev let me know what you find out when you go there.
What mods are you planning by the way . Keep us updated

As far as the water pump goes it dint have to be changed ther pully that fits on it had to be replaced along with the lock in it. costed me around 300 bucks

Same tyres as we have on our 550. When I was after these I looked up dealers on the Michellin web site as they own BFGoodrich and phoned around. The discount between dealers can vary greatly so best to shop around.

I would vouge with and agree with Allan 100%. Case to mention is the clean up Mumbai force which painted its vehicles in green. The army raised objections to it. They had to give a demarcation to its vehicles in its doors and other panels as it was not possible to repaint the entire vehicle fleet. Olive Green is specifically meant for Army vehicles.

The restriction is only for olive green so just paint it henna green. The Mahindra Legend was available in henna green.

No problem, remember to use Harjeev, Rickys and Randeeps threads as there is a lot of useful information there, especially with regards to issues such as the compounds to use to seal the underside of the bodytub etc etc.

Also consider what you will be using your 550 for. We use ours mainly on the road and dry sandy tracks around the village and for this the BFG are quite good. The offroad tyres thread is also excellent as all the positives and negatives of using various tyres has been discussed in depth.
