Ultimately the choice is yours.

Apparently, the suspension warranty on the Swift would be lost EVEN when the same tire / wheel spefications are kept when you pick up the alloy wheels and tires from the outside market. This was quoted by a dealer in B'lore. Is this relevant?

I don't think the warranty is lost if you chose the same spec tires and alloys well not many would do that anyways, they would always look for an upsize.

Default Updated: 20,000 km on my Swift ""Hi Mod's, Please update the thread heading......""

Well its been 14 months since I got my Black Swift and yesterday I got the first paid service done. Here is the report

1. Servicing (Rs. 650)
2. Check Left Rear door (unable to open)
3. Right front door rattling
4. Wheel rotations
5. Spark plug's changed (Rs. 54)
6. Coolant (Rs. 261)
7. Engine Oil (Rs. 142)
8. Break fluid (Rs. 60)
9. Gear Oil (Rs. 477)
10. Brake bleeding
11. Read break drum R&R
12. Pollution check
13. Engine Decarb (Rs. 1,150)

Extra's
1. Upholstery clean (Rs. 650)
2. 3M polish (Rs. 1200)

Total cost of first paid service Rs. 6010.

Replaced the air filter with K&N stock filter (Rs. 3500) for the Swift (This was done a day before the service).

After service report.

All the minor scratches on my black Swift barely visible now. Some touch up paint was done to the bumpers where I had a couple a bikers tryin to sniff my rear. The polish has given the car a gleaming look (I Like it n snaps, coming soon!!!).

With the K&N filter combined by the engine decarb, I no longer need to go to the first gear as often as I used to earlier. The low end torque has definitely improved a lot. The car is smoother and it does get to 105 kmph faster than before in the 2nd gear as the rev limiter checks in.

The front door rattling is no longer there, the rear door had jammed due to some problem in the actuator (as mentioned by the Maruti engineer). He said if the problem persisted he would replace the actuator.

Mileage check well need another week's time to get it.

Overall I am extremely satisfied with the car and also the servicing and care provided by Mandovi motors, Wilson Garden service center, Bangalore.

Hey,

Why the hell do you need a decarb at 10k. Has Maruti lost it. Bloody idiots trying to make money out of people who dont know. You should finish their happiness. Carbon clean is only for cars which have ideally done 20k +.

@viper: The Swift HAS done 20K...check out the title of the post.

@anarchist: You could've changed the entire set of plugs instead of one. It's always better to change the entire set at once. And did you say 105 in 2nd..? Man, you're hitting 6.8K+ DOT..? Not that good...always better to upshift before 6.4K. You'll get better acceleration, as you'll drop right into the powerband, just after the torque peak.

Well,

I dont go to 6.8k on the rpm all the time, did try it a couple a times before I got the stock K&N filter for my car and did it once after the K&N to see if there is an improvement in the performance. . I will remember to shift earlier if I am racing someone someday, until then .....

Hey Anarchist,

Jusr causally how many kilometres your swift has covered and how is
car overall performance?

Just checking casually because I have sold my Swift.
