deepug there is no change in ECU.

Yesterday i was reading the car manual, and found that it has description of climate control AC, i am wondering how this is possible, when i bought the car there was no climate control ac on offer.

Default 10000 Km Update.

Got the 10K service done.

Odo reading - 96XX
Cost - Rs. 450.

Issues : Some sound coming from left rear door - Solved now.

Just wanted to check with the other owners whether the 10K service costs JUST 450 bucks...??

I recently noticed while firing up my car there was a lag initially (unnoticeable) and then the engine fires up. Is it the same with all cars ??

On the other hand petrols seem to fire up instantly.

You mean you crank and nothing happens? Get the battery checked I guess.

naah. When i crank the engine obviously fires up. No probs with that. I was just trying to compare cranking of a petrol engine is just so instantaneous while I feel that comparatively there is some lag (millisecs may be) when i fire up my diesel.

Duno wheher I am ryt.. seems fever is really getting to my head.. huh

@ Sibu - If you want comfort go with the Mich Energy. For performance, get the Yoko S Drives. And, if can stretch for the PP2s, nothing like it!

Guys I was planning to change the bulbs of my car. Could you all suggest some specific products. I was interested in getting the phillips H4 (white light). Any other better options.

Please suggest...

EDIT:

Update: Crosslink Parking sensors installed

Wind tone horn installed

yar whenever i drive my petrol the craving for a windtone increases, so i thought of getting rid of the crappy horn and get a GOOD sounding one. And yeah im feeling the difference..

sensors from crosslink coz of warranty and stuff and they have a pretty decent system as well which depicts the position (R, M, M, L) quite accurately alongwith each one's distance. Even the rear view mirror looks chic (sundar lighting u know )
