@autosphere , my gypsy is 13 years old. Fitting an a c and h t or spending too much on it is nt a good idea. Better to go for a new one. The jimny is a good option but there are no details available regarding its launch and size , specifications etc. If Maruti stops selling the gypsy next year and I don't like the jimny I ll be stuck in no mans land. So I ll place my order by November
Thanks and now I understand. And also about the Jimny, there is a thread about a 2018 launch - so that's too far.

Once a Gypsy user always a Gypsy lover

Been a gypsy lover since my college day! Here are a few pics of my beauty. I doubt the jimny can come to the road presence a gypsy commands !

Hey cool_dube , i am planning on booking a gypsy asap - waiting for the dealer in bangalore to confirm the exact price in written (i intend to get this on company lease). I contacted the one in whitefield (Bimal) and they confirmed that while they can take the booking, there are some T&Cs -
1. Color options limited to white and military green
2. Hefty booking amount, non-refundable of course
Waiting period is expected to be 3 months. Have you heard anything better from any other dealer?

Have put up my old gypsy for sale. Not yet decided about buying a new gyspy or thar. The family wants it to be an suv/muv which can be chauffer driven and has good comfort levels. And the budget is quite tight too as its our third vehicle. So i am still researching.

It is not military green but "Harvest Green", as seen here (My brand new Gypsy King 1.3L MPFI)

Standard is 50K. Ask him to take a walk, if he is asking for more.

Even MUL cannot commit on a waiting period for Gypsy, let alone the dealer It is unpredictable, to say the least. If your planets are in alignment and a "bulk" order is placed just around the time you booked your Gypsy, you can get it within a month. If not, keep waiting like a drought-hit farmer looking at the sky.

This rules out both Thar and Gypsy right away. Go for an Ertiga/Innova depending on the budget.

Shankar, there is not much that the dealers can do when it comes to the Gypsy. They are as, probably more, helpless than the customer since they get beaten up by the customer for no fault of theirs! MSIL has no interest whatsoever in selling the Gypsy and do not give a damn if you do not book or cancel the booking. The only assured variant / color is the soft top in White. For anything else, you need to wait till they get 'bulk' orders in that color / variant.

Cheers...
