Well, AC I did install in April. It comprises of a Maruti Esteem Compressor, Maruti Ecco Condenser, Maruti Ecco Cooling Coil, Stock Blower & a Custom Built Radiator.

Vitamin M deficiency has led me to putting most of my future mods on hold & Suspension mod is one of them, as it is not on my utmost priority list.

Right now am in 2 minds weather to go in for :

Winch Type Bumper with Fog Lamps

Talking Re: Got Gypsy段ed - 5000 Kms Done

Firstly, Wishing Everyone a Very Happy New Year !!!

Got Gypsy段ed - My brand new Maruti Gypsy 4x4-26195324_10159761408490524_9073425740616619803_n.jpg

Finally after close to 10 Months the Gypsy crosses the 5,000 Km mark.

Got Gypsy段ed - My brand new Maruti Gypsy 4x4-4.jpg

By far this is the maximum time any of my vehicles have taken to cross the 5K reading on the reading, this is despite the fact that I drive close to 3000 Kms in a month of which the Gypsy is barely used for 300 Kms in a month as it is meant for Office commute only. The only outstation trip I have done so far except for the Piucha Waterfall Jawahar Palace trip mentioned earlier is when I went for the Trail Survivor Course at the Mahindra Off Road Academy in Igatpuri.

Browsing through my old phone I found pictures of when I first saw my Gypsy sans the Rims Tyres along with Odometer reading at the time of the delivery.

The Gypsy was delivered with 59 Kms on the Odometer and below mentioned are the Fuel Economy Figures along with the Odometer Error due to larger tyres. Over the Months I have captured every single Fuel entry for the Gypsy along with Date, Time, Litres Filled and Odometer Reading.

Overall the Gypsy has returned 12 Kmpl in mostly City usage and am quite satisfied with that, given the number of Kms the Vehicle clocks per Month.

Today also happens to ironically be the Booking Anniversary of my Gypsy. In the past 5000 Kms the Gypsy has never had a single hiccup. Yes, the Suspension is really bad, but the Ownership till now has been quite uneventful.

Was reading through another Gypsy Ownership Thread on this forum & completely agree with Dr.Anto, that we are lucky to have bought the Gypsy quite early in our Life.

I simply can稚 imagine using a Gypsy in Late 50痴/Early 60痴 when many of us due to the Lifestyle we lead would be suffering from Spondylitis/Arthritis & jumping a Speed Breaker/Driving over a Pothole would send shivers down our spine.

In the coming weeks am planning to do a Tyre Rotation + Wheel Alignment check. Also need to desperately get the Fibre Coating done before Monsoon sets in.

Exiting times to you

Hi Swapnil,

The Gypsy look great!
I am getting one in a month (fingers crossed). I want to know, if I were to swap the tires for Geolandars at the showroom itself, would I get a price for the brand new stock tires?

Cheers,
Ash

Congratulations on your purchase! I doubt if the dealer will swap the tyres for you - have you checked with them? In fact, the OE tyres on the Gypsy are tube-radials and you will hardly find any takers. Consider yourself lucky if you get 3K per tyre.

As Cool Dube mentioned earlier it is highly unlikely you will find takers for the Stock Cross Ply Tyres. I feel you should check with your Dealership if they are ready to exchange them for New Geolanders or you may try at local Tyre Shops, but I doubt you would get Rs.3000/- per piece for just the Tyre. You could try selling them on Olx or Team-Bhp Classifieds later but you may land up getting stuck with them if you don't find any takers.

This is a car to drool over. Even though it's more than three decades old, it looks fresh as ever. I just can't stop myself from looking back when I overtake a Gypsy and keep on staring at it in my IRVM & ORVM till it is lost. I also saw a few brand new (2017 registered) Army and Air Force Gypsy recently on my way to office and they just looked gorgeous.

Congratulations to all for having this prized possession. I don't own one due to practical reasons of the vehicle not having power steering and AC, but I am a diehard fan of this vehicle.

Where did you install the AC from? And where did you buy the radiator from?

Talking Re: Got Gypsy段ed - My brand new Maruti Gypsy 4x4

Apologies for the long silence, work commitments have kept me fairly busy. In the near past I joined a Facebook Group called Classic Maruti Enthusiasts - India (800, Omni, 1000, Zen, Esteem, Gypsy).

Was finally able to attend today's meet. The Meeting point was Horniman Circle, Fort (9 AM) & the Drive thereafter to Bandra Worli Sea Link. The Meet was attended by quite a few nicely maintained SS80's & SB308's along with Esteem's, Zen's, a Zen Carbon & a Gypsy King other than mine.

Below are the pics that i managed to click, will share more Pics & Videos as & when received.
