From what I have read, bulbs that boast of 80% or 90% more light tend to have a lesser lifespan.. that was why I am a little inclined towards silverstar 50%

Osram Nightbreakers which are +90% are around 1200 a pair.
Silverstar is around 500 (not sure though).

When/where are you planning to get your bulbs changed?

Gill-I have run a similar distance, but feel that the engine noise has come down. there is a clatter outside the car, but inside is rather pleasant. did it show any improvement after the 20K service? engine gets noisy and rough if the air filter is clogged. quality of engine oil used also matters.

The car is running great,no problems what so ever.I supervised the 20 k service my self and the engine oil used was as recommended by maruti,i am not able to recollect the name though,Air filter was changed,so was diesel filter and oil filter.But the nose is for sure on higher side in cabin,thinking of getting it checked in MASSC,but i doubt they will look in to matter seriously,keen to look for pointers so that they can told what as to look into.

- Try System D with regular fuel for about 2 tankfulls and see if it makes a difference.

- Also notice the clutter with and without the AC. If there is a significant difference, the AC might need attention.
