Lovely review buddy!!

Maruti 800 would be always special to me. I learnt driving in this car and happy to say that the car is still running well. We have a 1989 model and has run 4 lakh KM in 27 years. Engine was overhauled twice and running strong now. I hardly drive the car now. Dad runs the car daily for a 10 KM trip .

Mine came with brake booster, and heater.
Its always pleasure to know there are many more hidden experienced 5 speed users. Felt mine was sufficient though, i think it was serviced just before it was sold to me.

It's a no non-sense choice for us, but somehow it always confounds others.

The lightweight and the direct steering, the plaint ride, the compact size, all were its USPs in its era. It will always be an icon, the Beetle of India, the car that put India on wheels.
Thank you, it means lots to me.
It will be an icon, the legendary car that moved India.
And to drive a car with such history is a totally different feeling.

Thank you so much.

It's those stories which made me buy the 800.
And everybody have one because at some point in their life 800 has been the mode of transportation to be in. Aspirational yet affordable.
Yours look lovely in white.

Excellent video Johann! I already saw this video before on YT before stumbling on your thread here. Honestly, when I first saw the title of the video, I wasn't very convinced. 16 year old car as a daily driver??? Noways man. But I have to admit you have made some excellent logical points. I am sold!

Thank you so much.
Hopefully. But classics are hard to come by but I'll try.
An Abarth is in order next, test drove it to udaipur.
My jaws dropped and also loved clicking it.
