They charged me 7k for the same thing about 8-10 months ago. But the replacement was for the combination switch

PS: The whining sound is still present but the guy at Mitsu told me when i had visited him 2 months ago that its not a big deal and will be taken care off when the car comes in for service.

Thanks and Regards,

I don't think car should have any problems at 27.5k. Nothing to watch out for. There are only 2 problems I have faced in 72k+ kms of driving. Horn switch went bad for which they replaced airbag assembly. Was within 7 days of 2 yr warranty. Then recent blinker problem. No issues with car apart from mishandling by A.S.S.

CR1616 - watch guys should have it right ?
All standard watch showrooms have the cell battery. Should cost a couple of hundred bucks at the max. The watch repairman in the showroom will also replace it for you.

Have done this twice, once for the main keyfob and once for the duplicate keyfob.

Try the Time Factory outlets etc.

Mine never did either but got the same replaced nevertheless.
Getting in and out of the car takes more time than getting the PCB replaced By the time I could tell the technician to show me what was being replaced, he was done.

I'm getting Roulunds brake pads front set for RS 1900. Anyone ever used those? It looks like some European brand.

Hello all, need tyre replacement advice for the Bridgestone RE88s on my Cedia. I've had no problem with those tyres, so happy to get the latest Bridgestone Potenza model. But for someone who drives in typical Delhi traffic plus runs on the Noida and Gurgaon highways, is there something else worth considering (Yokohama, Michelin etc.).

Driving style is not very adventurous

Talking about tyres, I need to retire my two BS Potenzas since they have started showing slight cracks after 4 years.
The other two tires are Michelin PLC. Now, it seems PLC is no longer sold.
So, is it OK to go with P3ST now?

Yes, the P3ST are what the Cedia needs to shine on curves and tracks. On my recent trip to Poona I was driven to the VW plant and back to Marzorine in a friend's Punto riding on the P3STs . It was a silent (road noise wise) and very comfortable ride. This Fiat has 53000 odd kms. on the odo of which 42 K odd were on Primacy LCs and 11K ++ on the P3STs. This car is driven on all sort of back roads (is currently in Aurangabad) and has never seen a puncture or bulge on either set.

RE88s were good tyres. Awesome grip on curves. They are little noising when old. I got only 2 punctures in 40000 kms on stock RE88.

I replaced them with MRF ZlO which more soft and silent. But soft tyres don't provide good grip on curves. I will suggest to buy tyres based on your driving style and roads that you mostly commute. Given the chance again I would choose RE88 over ZlO for my driving style.

I can't comment about other tyres as I have not experienced them.

P3ST is around 5900 INR a piece. Will shop around and get some more quotes.
I had paid 5400 for PLC three years ago.

Exploring tyre options, someone on TBHP provided a link to an online site which allows you to order tyres.

Never heard of some of the brands, but just in case someone is interested, this is for Cedia. http://www.changemytyre.com/Tyres/Ca...=34&CityID=177

Meanwhile, after hunting around for the 3ST, I realized all the dealers pretty much charge the same amount for the full package (tyre + fitting + valve + balancing + weights). Since I am buying only two tyres, I need to pay extra for the alignment (between 350-600 depending on the dealer).

The Michelin dealer on Nagar road was the cheapest at Rs. 5660/ piece (including fitting + valve + labour for balancing). Weights would be extra charge.
Alignment at Rs. 600 is a rip-off when the A.S.S. itself is charging Rs. 350+ tax.

Was scouting around for owners manual for our Cedia but didn't manage to find one yet. However, I have recently found the Factory Service Manuals for our car... that's the Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally in the US.

I am not sure for how long I'd keep in in my google drive but for now please help yourselves:
https://drive.google.com/folderview?...TQ&usp=sharing

Please check the 2006 model FSM's - that's the exact model for our Cedia's sold in India.

Meanwhile, I got a 15.8 KMPL when I drove to Bangalore from Hyderabad during November. When I drove to Shirdi I got below 14.
When at Bangalore, I got my LPG kit fixed. The pressure sensor was gone. This is placed after the injection rail.
The garage had a kit taken off from another Cedia that was being converted for track purpose and that sensor worked right away. Got the diaphragm and filters changed and costed me a total of Rs 8K.

I might've got abt 13 KMPL on LPG during my return journey. In city I'm getting abt 9 or a little higher with LPG while with Petrol it definitely is 10.xx. Of course, if I drive constantly in heavy traffic areas, it is not even 9 on Petrol.

With Petrol at 66 and LPG at 40, it sure is helping me be economical.

On an earlier trip to Srisailam, the suspension took a beating when the car hit several speed breakers that couldn't be noticed due to heavy rain. A metal contact sound comes from possibly the front right side. The lower arm ball joints need replacement. Working on getting the strut upper mounts with their bearings, the stabilizer sway bar links, strut seat sprint insulators and lower arm ball joints + bushes from the US. A friend is coming in 2 weeks. He allowed me 2 KG's. Stretching that to 2.5

Have to see what exactly is gone only when we open the suspension. But according to two trusted garages, these could be the ones that introduce the sound I am getting.

So, finally this afternoon got the two ageing BS tires replaced with 3ST.
I had to pay 11850 for two tires including balancing of all four wheels and alignment.

Now, I noticed that the power steering hose is leaking quite bad.

See photo.

However, the reservoir level is almost the same as it was when I had marked it two years ago.

So, now I am not sure if this is indeed PS fluid or something else.

This is a standard known niggle - I had mine replaced 2 years ago. This is potentially dangerous and a fire hazard.
