Hi rejeen, I am quite late on this post of yours, but i really need your suggestion on the following:

- I have been contemplating on changing the entire brake setup (Pads and Disc rotor) for my GT TDI. I am considering Brembo, which is a bit on the higher side. How has the Bosch parts been since you changed them?
The OEM brake pads and rotors of VW are crap. How has the Bosch parts faired so far?

- I noticed that you have also changed the Link rod. I was informed on my previous service that I got to change mine for front right suspension. Any particular reason why you changed the one on your Vento?

Thank you for your time in answering my queries.

A follow up on my experience with Carista around 2 months ago.

After around a month, I started noticing a very slight oil leak under my car (around a drop every day). I took it to Magnum Honda, my regular service destination. I was told the leakage is due to incorrect fitting of the oil filter, which has caused the filter to get damaged. Also, apparently close to a liter of oil was drained and had to be topped up. I was suggested to change the oil completely instead of topping up, along with the oil filter. Was told it is not a good idea to mix old and new oil. Felt I was being bluffed to, but just wanted to get my car back to shape, so agreed.

I was told even the air filter put in by Carista was not of good quality. I was shown the new one they used vs the one on my car, there was a very visible difference in the quality.

So, I basically had to get the car serviced again in just over 2 months. Car drives much smoother now, and costed was similar to that of Carista's (6K including a 1.9K interior cleaning).

Just re-iterated my earlier decision to NEVER go to Carista again. I would rather delay the service, but never call them due to lack of time.

I am supposed to replace the oil pressure switch on my 6 year old Rapid 1.6TDi (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post4435621 (Skoda Rapid : Test Drive & Review)). The oil pressure warning lights up after a few kms of driving and I am quite apprehensive about driving it in that state all the way to the service center which is 13kms from my home.
So do people here recommend calling up carista for this replacement? Do they know their way around a VW engine, and would they be able to get a genuine replacement?

nma83, please take your vehicle to an ASC. I will not recommend them to experiment on a Skoda Rapid.

Looks like Cartisan has some competition now. Do they only service or offer detailing service also? Would be interesting if they do.

I was half hoping for a vote of confidence so that I can avoid driving the car to the service center with the warning light staring at me . But looks like I have no other option.
