First Aid kits are provided with M800 also.

My 2003 model non a/c 4 gear mpfi M800 was provided with a F.A. Kit.

p.s. just mentioning the full model details of the car so that others dont assume that only a particular model of M800 comes with FA kit....

It is standard practise today to provide FA kits with all cars and Fr and Rr seat belts too.

Also add door-scratch protectors made of rubber to protect the door from scratches especially when parking in tight-spots.

Another very useful accessory is neck-rest that can be attached to head restraints.

In the case of First-Aid-Kits always make sure that the medicines are within the expiry date.

How about a thin & long ruler, taped perhaps to the inside of the bumper? For those times, when you are in the middle of nowhere and have locked your keys inside the car. Or maybe someone has a better idea.

Is it that easy to open a modern day car with a ruler? Seems scary.

Have used it on all my Maruti 800s and Santros successfully. Takes less than 5 minutes. Normal entry was with key not keyless, though. Very scary.

Parking sensors warn you of an obstacle while parking. Cost depends on the brands and I think they cost between 5K-7K for a pair of sensors on the rear bumpers.

Yes these are compulsorily given because of Government regulations.

Hi,

Does anyone have any information on the Car Tracking solutions being offered in India, I heard of a company in New Delhi-which had managed to Trace a stolen Scorpio from Munirka,New Delhi to some parking lot..! Don't have the name for the company mentioned but the cost was around 9000 or so..! Any Idea on this ?

ps:dilipkumar can we some pics of your car. looks like you have a few mods to it. which model is it?
