And the Zxi top trim wipes out almost all the cribs regarding the others - safety, build, creature comforts, except the space on the rear bench and boot

Bought some essentials for the goose. Things like these ensure that the machine remains in top notch condition. Torque wrenches, thread locker and the OEM grease will now be an integral part of all my DIY maintenance jobs.

OEM grease. Almost everyone questioned about its necessity, and I was like: Why would you not?? We spend so much on OEM spares, why go 99% of the way and ruin the machine by using a local grease??

I guess 5 or 6 types of grease are used in a Maruti car. For example, Grease E is used in steering system, Grease H is used in driveshafts and so on. The one I bought is Grease A, because it is used in 80% of the applications like lubricating window winder to applying on wheel bearings, oil seals etc. I'll be following the service manual strictly to know about the type of grease for a specific application.

Signing off with a recent click of the Golden goose, sharing parking space with its more contemporary counterparts.

Thanks to Dr. Naren and others for recommending, I purchased the 3M wipers, and I must say I am mighty impressed. No shuddering, absolutely silent streak-free wipes.

Stock size was 17/17. I went for 18/16, as 3M wasn't available in stock size. MRP was Rs.650, and I paid Rs. 590 after a 10% discount.

Have used Minda, Bosch and OEM(Syndicate) in the past, but these 3M ones are much superior.
