Felt a slight kick in the back side as the turbo kicks in, never felt it was noisy.
Been a while since I've driven it as the puppy is back home

Painting cost depends on the damage, I've no idea about the price of light.

if its just an inspection+tightening and cleaning, the total bill for the whole service should be below 4000

Sorry for the delay, was off the net for a while. The sound is always there I shall confirm with the position of steering. I think it is when I turn the wheel a hint. Will check that out today.

Okay, so the bill will be the same like my 20K service

Default Black smoke

I was trying to overtake a car and had to rev up a bit hard, and saw black smoke out of my exhaust clearly through my RVM.
My odo currently is 8700 and due for service at 10K.

Is it fine? or do I need to do some checks?

Are you using regular diesel? If not switch to regular diesel, also check if your air filter if its clean.

I am using regular, but started adding SystemD for last two fills. I will stop that, and check air filter. thanks.

Dont think System D will give smoke issues and that too at that level. If your car usually is run at lower rpms esp in city conditions, there is a high probability that soot would have accumulated, which is thrown out at hard acceleration (assuming this was done after down shifting) OR flooring at a higher gear also can contribute to this.

Air filter is a good thing to check.

that is the exact scenario in which smoke came out.
Most driving is in Bangalore between HAL and Dairy circle in peak conditions.
And today, I just accelerated at gear2 to overtake one guy suddenly, and smoke came out.
That explanation helps.
But definitely air filter is something I will get checked with 10K service.
I saw in a comment saying air filter cleaning is not part of recommended schedule.
Can I do it myself?

Or do you think shifting to K&N is a good idea?

My car every service its done if replacement is not done without any special requests. Stock filter in stock car is good enough, since if you move to K&N you will still need to do cleaning.

Yes you can do it, if you have access to tools and and pressurized air/vacuum cleaner

If anyone could help me on this, probably i can tell the service engineer what to check for.

Thanks,
Anshu
i had same problem the sound was from steering box .initially thought it as from damper and replaced it but sound remained .put complaint to maruti,entire steering unit replaced now sound dissapeared.

I had the same problem. My 3 months old Vdi used to leave smoke. I had a word with Jaggu and he said that it does smoke but not at as low as 2500 rpms. I stopped filling at that pump. Now there is no smoke even at 3500 rpms.
