I might be wrong if remaps are not possible on this car.
I had earlier done Wolf switachble remap for my Abarth Punto, which made an obvious difference.

I contacted wolf for the remap of Jimny. As per them, there will be an overall improvment of 5 to 7% from stock. Plus I'm not sure if Maruti will honour the warranty after remap.

Thanks for this Rakesh.
Since I'll be travelling in a day, I'll go with a cycle type chain lock for the time being.
I've also written to Faradshop to confirm if these will fit the Jimny with steel wheels. Once i have their confirmation, I'll order them.

I'm going to be travelling and the Jimny may be parked at places that are not secure. Was thinking of a simple chain lock - like the ones used on bicycles - that can go around the spare wheel mount and into the wheel.


Would appreciate if anyone has a better idea.

Thanks
Iíve installed Farad Locknut ( Star Lock)

The sales guy : Sir, you can Google about Team-Bhp. They are quite big, and popular. If a Team-Bhp member certifies a car, you can buy that car eyes closed.
Ha ha haa. Did you reveal your identity and briefed him What is Team-Bhp?

Also your shared bit was quite informative.

Thanks.

What did it cost?
And I'm assuming it comes with it's own key.

Suggest you order the five nut version as you will require fifth one for the stepney. I had ordered the same from farad for my Jimny.

The correct one to order in case 5 are required is as under:

The Description is : Car Wheel Locks Galaxylock HA4/M 5 locks + 1 key

Have got these 5 fitted to all wheels.

In case you need help in ordering or otherwise please contact Kalpesh from Farad : 93260 89919‬. He is most helpful.

The sales guy : I can only give you a couple of kilometers test drive.

Me : But I am not an expert like the Team-Bhp members. So I need a longer TD to understand the car. Can I get a longer TD?

The sales guy- Okay Sir, let me take an approval then.

Me : Thank you.
Haha this is epic ! Wonder who the other 4 Team Bhpians were You could have told its time to recertify by a distinguised Bhpian

Nice first impressions. Maybe I will hit Nexa for a TD as well.
