I've reached 29k...30k around the corner.

Nothing more to report - its business as usual. I'll let you have the service costs when I complete it, but there's been nothing major or minor to talk of in between.

However, 20k was a fairly major service with Transmission Oil, Differential Oil some other stuff being changed in addition to Engine oil - cost me 2k.

Had an engine flush done in between.

Steer,

An engine flush in such a short run time <30K.. Was it recommended or just like that. Any major improvements after the same ?

Just like that, during my recent visit.

Vehicle does seem smoother, but I also had to do an unscheduled oil change with it.

Overall NVH levels have improved quite a bit after running in so many kms.

Most of the service costs are somewhere on this thread - only additional item was footrails which I changed + Engine flush (+ oil change by default) at 27k (voluntary) Rs.2,340

cost of normal service is about 1.2 to 1.5 k

When I did my voluntary oil change at 1k , my safari was feeded with HP Milcy engine oil.

They give you 3-4 options, none of which are synthetic. Since I dunno the diff between any of them, I ask them what the price is and ask them to pour in the costlier one of the lot with the fervent hope that it would actually be better. Not much of a price diff, anyway - about 120 to 150 bucks between the cheapest and the costliest.

Hey Rahul and Steeroid,

well i always see that you two along with Suman give a lot of posts on Safari DICOR.

I thought of paging w.r.t the reverse guide system. It is very much available in India as different costs ranging between 7K to 20K.

I got thsi done for my DICOR with 7 inch display(in IRVM) and a camera and costed me 7K. From a company : "Auzo" it is available for 9.5 K with camera, 7inch display and 4 parking sensors with one year gurantee.

there are many more available as well, just try hitting some shopkeeps and i am sure you will find one.
