A common problem faced by us Liva owners is $$ For the interest of Liva owners is the lack of weather seal on Liva doors causes lot of dust to settle on the door frame. In my case on two occasions a lizard was hiding in the gap and when I opened the door, it jumped inside the car. It took a hell lot of effort to get it out.
A month ago was browsing through Ali Express and came across this:-

The item is available at below link:-
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4M-Z...608.0.0.Zd4vbJ

Ordered it and was delivered within one month. No additional duties paid.

Installed it yesterday and the results are very good.
Thanks a lot for sharing. Can you please share more detailed snaps?

Major update:

An update after what seems to be an eternity. The car went through the 50k service recently and all 4 tyres were changed due to excessive wear & tear.
The tyres have been upgraded to 185 sections and the car feels as good as new after these upgrades and service.

Changed the stock 175/65 R14 to 185/65 R14 Goodyear Assurance triplemax ones.

The 50k service though had certain issues. They had given me free 3M interior and exterior cleaning for renewing the smiles package. They rectified the exhaust pipe noise issue that I had pointed out, however they hadn't rectified the security system issue. So when I was checking the car prior to the delivery, I was shocked to see they hadn't filled the coolant up. It was well below low level & when I asked the SA about it, he said it was 'normal'. Normal my foot! I told he should stop with all this BS and asked if this was what the service was all about, he apologized and immediately brought a bottle of coolant and filled it up to the rim. They then got the people from accessories and 'fixed' the security system issue by removing the switch from the bonnet and gave another bad reason saying it won't be a problem. And despite all this, the SA had the audacity to ask me for a 5 star rating.

Totally dissatisfied, I drove back home to find that they had not changed the brake pads either -_-

What has Harsha Toyota's service come to? They're definitely damaging the reputation of Toyota by doing a shoddy job. I'm planning to write to TKM regarding this, if nothing goes my way with Harsha, I'll have to switch to Lanson.

Quick update:

The car had crossed the 56k & 57k mark last week when I had taken it for a short vacation to Kodaikanal

Your post made me check my coolant level and shocking enough, found them at the low level marking. Wrote to TKM and they promptly called. Will get it done.

Also bro, you should've opted for the Michelins and upgraded to R15s. Missed opportunity!
