How good it is with those soft top and back? Is the sheet/tarpaulin at back removable? Or fixed?

Congratulations, Manik.

Do post your purchase and ownership experience? If you don't mind, do post the cost of procuring the beast as well.

Have a wonderful time driving on and off road.

Cheers,

the A/C works just fine its a Contessa unit and the rear sheet has zippers so it can be rolled up

Congrats for the buy, but honestly i feel 55K is way to high mileage for a 2008 Oct model gypsy.

Looks clean and good man.

But the tyres look too fat. dont you think you onroad ride quality will be affected by those huge fat tyres. Alloys are a killer. Looks cool.
