@shyammg- Red colour Gypsy looks beautiful mate, if you had posted this photo two month back I would have selected red colour but anyway I bought white colour.
More info needed about your Koni shocks and leaf springs.

@siddartha - I need to try the OTR's to really see how it feels. Have not done it so far ... As regards the Raid - the endurance is called the Adventure Trial which is actually quite easy in a Gypsy - Nothing really goes wrong with it. Its a beautiful experience but the speeds are quite low. We did only about 4 - 5 stages over 7 days of driving where it was somewhat difficult to maintain the average given. Anyway will post more details in a new thread with pics of the raid. Please PM me for any info you want - I think that I have a very good idea on how to do well at the Raid if I do it again. We started 30th, went down to 37th after Day 1 due to many early check in's and climbed back to 16th in SUV category after excercising restraint with the gas pedal! Will post a review of the Raid with pics in a new thread soon. The 00 car does not need a roll cage, only helmets are mandatory (The 00 is not expected to be really fast thro the stage - that's the 0's job).
@gotzuk - Dont forget easily man! The best (and most polite!) TC Marshals in the Raid!
@headers - The koni shocks are available through methods (Methods Car Parts and Car Accessories Online Shop and Distributors in Bangalore India, K&N Performance Filters, Sparco Motorsport Accessories) and the link to the koni site is Koni: Heavy Track . They are about 20K for 2 - expensive but worth it in terms of feel. Dont know how well they last since 1 shock packed during the Raid (But this was because my front leaf spring, which was stock because of raid regulations failed)
@sha - Thanks. Actually I would have chosen white if I got it new like you, I bought this Gypsy used in May this year and it was red, so it is!!

thanks GTO , i just love the pic, in a certain sense the pic actually captures the essence of what the gypsy symbolises/signifies.

Finally! Those tyres look good enough to eat. A very purposeful looking Gypsy overall, Khan Sultan.
