Hi chaps! I right now use a Zen, it's my dad's car. I had an RX135 which i sold off this week. I want to get my own ride now so I am buying an used M800 and gonna do it up step by step. Putting a turbo in the 800 is one thing i really want to try

Hi Sankar,

Welcome aboard.

Do you mean the order in which you see the posts?
If you want the newest post in a thread to be displayed first, you can change that (as well as a ton of other features) if you go to "User CP" /your control panel and change your settings.

Welcome to TBHP and wish you all the very best with your Turbo Maruti experiment. I own a tiny turbo (660 cc) motor myself and have always liked the Maruti 800.

Thanks Rehaan. Now i can see the posts the way i want to.

Steeroid, which car do you own? I'm really interested to know about your 660cc turbo.

Today i've bought a red 85 December model Suzuki 800. The car is in near mint condition. The things preventing it from being mint are the scratches on the bumper and one small ding on the left front fender. The body is dent free (except one small ding) and rust free. The dash is intact, the never had any stereo fitted and that 'Suzuki' panelin the dash for the stereo is still there. The door pads and the seats are not damaged. It is a very very well kept car! Guess what till now the car has done only 43000km on the odo!! (the odo has not been clocked ) The engine is still peppy and ultra responsive. Man i love this car!

And the best thing is i got the original Owners manual, service and warranty book and the brochure along with the car. Preserved since 1985!

Guys but i have a few worries. I need to know if the parts can still be procured for this car through the dealerships? Which is the hardest to find part for this car? And which dealership/car workshop/ car care centre would be the best to look after my car in bangalore?

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. Cheers!

welcome to da gang !!
85 M800 -- she's a beauty if well kept dud. i have 86 model and she still runs pretty smooth. gettin parts wont be much of a problem in bangalore - city has lot of people caring for the old cars...other wise the best option is to get the parts from mumbai ( a bit costlier though )
enjoy your stay and new car as well
