Hey Dude,

Regarding the painting the car is good perception but dont change the colour of the car b'coz in the RC the car colour is mentioned as white colour, when u change the colour of the car it will become problem when u sell it of. Better not to change the car colour....

Expert`s comment:

Considering the year of make,probable usage adn procedure involved like registerig in RC book for change of olour and also the cost of whole body painting,it wont be good idea in going for repainting with new colour.You can go for either white colour painting or get regular body polish done to keep it in fair condition.

The Engine is in Excellent Condition

Should i convert it to LPG ?

Answer by Tushar 04 April 2010

LPG conversion for Maruti vans is a proven modification that has served a lot of people well. You should have no problems with that. Kindly ensure you get the conversion done by a thorough professional. Cheers on the good service of your vehicle.

u can go in for the same colour painting,(cause RC book shows white colour) instead of a new paint,as for lpg conversion if u wanna go ahead wit it get it done frm maruti genuine accessories they provide better service n warranty, but it would be fine even if u keep existing petrol engine as there are'nt ny prblm, as an lpg kit wont make a vry vry big difference

As other friends says changing of color may cause RC problem while selling. But if you can bare the expenses for changing to a metalic color the appearance of your vehicle become better. In the case of LPG conversion I will prefer Lovato gas kit for better performance. Mileage not less than 17km/l. But available of LPG filling stations in your area must be confirmed. Also for long journey we should aware about the filling stations along the way.

See i am owning the van I am recommending you to convert to lpg only if your engine is mpfi..or else DO NOT CONVERT IT i am telling on my persnoal experience........ i am frustrated you can change the colour to silky silver as it is not visible for scratch and dust and go and just chage in RC Book by paying nominal charges..
