A good looking machine. Nice seats (Recaro is one of the best I know of) and body work, congratulations. Can we have some underhood pictures please? What is the Engine powering your Gypsy.

Nice looking Gypsy, Indra. And what better place to own one than Goa!

1. Are you going for a green CAI? If so, that's a bad choice for the Gypsy (if you are going to be 4-wheeling).

2. Your Gypsy's crying for a nice set of wheels. Get some high-quality alloys. With all that high profile rubber, they won't crack. Don't worry.

3. I hope the Recaro seats don't have a firm compound. Thats the last thing you want with the Gypsy's ride quality.

Good luck with sprucing her up!

GTO, I have changed my mind about the CAI as i have been advised by many people. Importing Off road steel wheels from America since there is very limited options in India.

Hi Indra, nice mods you have planned there ... why dont you try and get better lights for the roof top instead of the 4 rectangular Hella's? You can get better shaped rentangular lights (LED's for that matter). The Hella's would look very boxy IMO.

I have done the same to my Bolero.

The bumper fits the bill perfectly. Are you in two minds about the design ? I personally find it in sync with the winch & the off roading persona of the Gypsy.

Do keep putting in pics, makes it easier for most of us to "connect" to the thread.




Cheers

It definitely looks good and I agree with what Ricky has to say. Plus it does not look like the regular gypsy bumper , the best part is you have not tried to mofidy the stock bumper to fit the winch. You will probably lov it once you have colored it ....what color are you planning for it?

Great job going in there mate.
