Here is my Gypsy. I bought it new six months ago from Trivandrum. Soon after the registration I took her for long trip to Dwaraka , Gujarat covering about 10,000 km in a month.

super gypsy Gonewithwild! 10,000 in a month is great considering you were driving a Peetrol vehicle and such long trips in a gypsy..how did it feel? I mean did you guys have to apply moov on your back?

Your stock Gypsy looks great. Did you install a/c? I have always liked hardtop Gypsy's:-)

Vinod - Gypsy's are for Tough Guys - We dont need Moov on our backs:

We only need petrol!!

Vinod, Driving Gypsy for a long trip was a good experience.Gypsy did very well with high way and small roads . Gypsy given me a good mileage about 13 at high way or more. I am not planning to install A/c or PS in my gypsy.I love hard top too as it is practical, keep away from dust and easy to clean with water.
Only problem is that you need to wear a cap if you got long hair while driving a Gypsy.

Great stuff!!!! wow 10k kms in a month is real fast man. could manage only 6k in 14 days and that was because i went Leh from Mumbai or else it sounds impossible.

Lot's of new Gypsy owners... Glad to see the clan growing. Lucky guys to have found the King models. I spent nearly 6 months searching, but could not find even a single King 2 yrs back. Seems there are many available now.

Mine is the only Gypsy registered in the history of KL16 RTO. When I went for registration all these officials wanted to test drive my Gypsy as it was like something very rare.

How was your Leh trip KSM? Can we expect a long travelogue from you?How did your Gypsy performed all the way?
I looking forward to travel to Leh and also north east by Gypsy next year.

Well the trip was great and i will post a detailed log soon. The gypsy performed very well, will post details soon.

i also plan to do north east next year but am not sure if i will do it in a gypsy(will be too slow i guess, but a 1.6 in a gypsy may be the solution)

Thank you Amresh,
Well I have installed a JVC music system in it. I bought Russet brown colour to paint the hard top and a pair of falcon fog lamp for bumper but I am not sure about to change the stock form now.

Headers was right. moov for passangers sitting in the back. Vinod Nookla, you are invited to ride in our gypsy at the back. bring a carton of moov or volini.
