Just reached 55k on my Vxi. This time i used Shell Helix ultra synthetic, there was no Mobil 1 available.
Belts needed tightening as there was a slight noise on cold start.
Apart from oil and oil filter, Chowgules convinced me to to a throttle body cleaning and fuel induction system cleaning. Cost of each was Rs 1300-odd! Was I gypped?

They also sweet-talked me to a nitrogen filling for Rs 150, all five tyres. In the process they underinflated to 26 psi instead of 30 psi which I like to us. Had to top up at home when I discovered this next morning.

The car feels buttery smooth though.

Yesterday I had a slight creaking noise from the clutch pedal. Took it back, and a shot of WD-40 solved it.

Is there any clutch-related problem I need to look out for at around 60,000 km?

Not really. A well-driven car will easily see 70 - 100k on the stock clutch. Unless your clutch slips - when the rpm needle rises disproportionately higher than the speedometer - you don't need to worry about a new clutch.

True GTO, Mine i changed it at 90k. FNG guy was saying it can run for another 10 to 15k but i had to change for my delhi - kerala drive.
