Probably the distance. MSM is near Guindy and so it might be a lil difficult for the back and forth, and also I prefer to be around to drop and pick up my car. Also that I hear a lot about Ignite kind of getting high about it. Thats all

Of course, it is your choice. Quite likely I will continue to use Maruti until after the warranty is over, then I might change to an independent, and I too have it in mind to try Ignite (I live a km or three even closer than you!)

Off topic, There is a Maruti services in Neelankarai, as you probably know. That's even closer to you.


Yeah as quoted its only about the distance. Have you tried the one at Neelankarai?.. How old is your car. Where do you give it for service currently?

you could try CARS India @ LB Road for run of the mill service within the warranty period.They have a night shift as well, which is cool.

I would highly recommend Ignite, if you need any upgrades or mods or facing any problems with your car.

Any A.S.S is like a mass manufacturing plant - every car gets a limited amount of attention, that's all they can do. I have personally seen Raghav and team work on cars - mine as well as others'- and I can vouch that the attention is definitely notches higher than my A.S.S (have seen them work too!).

For anyone who wants that extra attention and care, ignite is the answer - am not saying that A.S.S job is not good, but Raghav & team are better.

Before anyone pulls my leg, no- am not Raghav's PRO, business partner, or derive any benefit from ignite except for the kind of attention & care I expect my car to be given.

Thumbs up A small note of thanks to Raghav (ignite)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...-problems.html (Help! - Engine fumes getting into the car & causing health problems)

A small update here with respect to the above thread:
This started off with a problem in my car (baleno), every time I drove with AC on (or) revv the car to higher rpms, I used to get stinging eyes, headache, and my concentration levels used to come down because of the fumes.

The only respite from this problem was to lower my windows at periodic intervals to take in fresh air when driving from home to office & vice versa. Other option was to set the AC mode to take fresh air from outside, but I had a damage to pay as all the leaves got sucked in clogging the AC system.

Initial thoughts spilled over to something allergic to me in the car and microbes stuck in AC system.
[Action_1] Got the AC checked, all car freshers removed.The problem was not solved.

Not confident of MASS, took it to Raghav, initial he suspected the clogged cat-con since we could smell rotten egg from the exhaust.
[Action_2]Got both the primary & secondary catcon removed, interior cleaning done to get rid of the bad smell. The problem came down 75%, i was sure we were dealing with compounded problems on the car.

This was the time when I got the audio installed in my car at Blore, eager to listen to those heavy metal & electronic music all times but rarely able to drive continuously because of the problem. I had my narrow misses on the road due to reduced concentration and loss of consciousness plus my health was degrading due to this problem.Frustrated I stopped using this vehicle & used to commute to office by the MTC and train. If not solved, I was planning to sell of this vehicle.

Tanked up the car full, dropped the vehicle again at Ignite, told Raghav to take his own time. The vehicle was on observation for close to 2 weeks at ignite..After months of difficulty, he narrowed it down to the ICE on the car as the root cause, Raghav is yet to ascertain what component in the ICE is causing the problem.

[Action_3] - Complete ICE removed, speakers, amp's, woofer, headunit and wiring. Drove the car for a week in peak traffic and there has been a ocean of difference. Our fellow team-bhpian petrol_head also felt the difference

I would be driving this car for another 1 week to check if there is any more problem. I feel my confidence in Raghav (Ignite) to solve this compounded problem has beared fruits..

================================================== =====
Labor charges - I don't want to get into the technicalities, rates are at par with M.A.S.S but with a lot more quality and focused attention.

Labor incurred over the last two visits will be paid only after the issue is solved.
================================================== =====

Does Ignite do performance mods like FFE and fitting a cold air intake. I need to do them for my fiesta.

I don't think they make them "there". However Raghav (Ignite) can get it done for you. Drop in there and talk to him. He is really helpful.

The other place people have been getting it done is at electra.
However the last one seen here on the forum is Mi10's swift.

The O2 sensor on his headers are fixed incorrectly as per other folks.
Ideally O2 should measure the outputs from all the cylinders. It was placed only on one cylinder, which apparently makes the car run "rich".

see the thread -> http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...-complete.html (My Subtle yet Suave Swift - Stage 1 Performance Mods Complete)

EDIT : BTW petrol_head's car sounds Awesome...!!!
