A bhpian recently got front struts on his Cruze replaced for roughly 16,000/- a pair. The same parts on Amazon are for 11,000/- a pair and delivered to your doorstep. Good to see that the parts will be sold directly by Chevrolet.

This seems like a great start for DIYers who prefer to buy their own parts but have to drive down to an auto spares market in their respective cities.

This is definitely a welcome break. Just got my cruze today for ASS . After 4.5 years and 70k km, they have recommended me to change all four Shockers. They have quoted me following for the front shocker (Right Side)

1. Front right shocker - 5800
2. Link Rod - 1500
3. Upper Mount - 2000
4. Labor - 700 (approx)

Checked the price at Amazon and there is hardly any difference. Also if one has taken an extended warrranty then I am not sure if it would be valid if one uses spares from vendors other than Chevrolet ASS.

Whats your view on this ? Do you recommend getting all fours shockers from ASS of Chevrolet ?

Regards

Seems to have partly started. First time I am seeing Cruze consumables being sold like this.

Way to go, Amazon!

Maybe not the correct thread for this particular discussion but just wanted to highlight that Chevy ASC had replaced my front shockers/struts at around 40k km due to my insistence on checking niggling noises. My Cruze is at 57k km now and all is well.

In case you do have an extended warranty, I would suggest that you stick to Chevy ASC for the sake of mental peace and because the price difference is marginal. From what I can see Amazon is selling the shocks at the MRP itself.

I myself am contemplating rear brake pads (Amazon: Rs. 7,044, ASC: Ra. 7,800) but will stick to ASC for warranty purposes.

If your car is under warranty (even extended warranty) then all jobs pertaining to the car be linked with Chevrolet ASC. If not then buy parts from Amazon and get it fit at an FNG. Here you should be having good contacts with the FNG for a clean and good work.

ArmorAll Car wash Shampoo:

Had ordered Sonax Shampoo actually but half an hour later I got an email from Amazon stating it is out of stock. So ordered the ArmorAll shampoo.

Was waiting for these so that I could do wash my car after ages.

The sponge is a good product IMO along with two MF cloth for cleaning and drying purpose.

With the Bug cleaner, life is better now.

Itís an entry level product just like Formula 1ís tar remover. If you are really serious, get the Car Pro Tar X. Expensive for a 500 mL bottle but works very effectively.

Yes. It does work. Go ahead and get one. I have just bought the same as the time and road of travel I do, has a million bugs that bug me to death when it is time to clean the front end.

Used the cleaner yesterday and it did clean out 90% of the bugs on the cars body. Wanted to use it on the front windshield but the 'Instructions' say NOT to be used on Automotive Glass! Not sure why!

I have raised a question on this already but yet to receive a reply for the same.

Some of their prices would take time to settle down, it seems.

I was shocked to see Shell Helix Ultra 5W40 4 liters listed at INR 4999, while the humble 99rpm sells it at INR 3,185!

Links for reference:

http://www.amazon.in/Shell-Helix-550...5019989&sr=1-1

http://www.99rpm.com/fiat/oils-fluid...-5w-40-4l.html

But overall, amazon entering this segment is something I have been waiting for ever since they entered India.

Edit: OMG! They have Iron X!! http://www.amazon.in/CarPro-ix500-Ir...eywords=iron+x

Hi,

Anyone knows where to buy the 3M AC Coil and louvre spray, cannot find it online, any distributor in Bangalore?

Had got it sprayed in my previous car, at around 750 Rs at HSR layout 3M, but they refused to sell the can :(

Regards
Shailesh

Got the Slime 40001 Power Sport Tire Inflator from Amazon today. I had ordered it on Monday with a delivery date March 10 and was surprised that they delivered it so quick. The cost incurred was Rs. 2,750.00 (zero shipping charges). The best part is this fits snugly into the tank bag.

Not yet Jaggu! Will do so over the weekend and will post a review once I do. But as much as I've heard it does a good job except that the tire guage not being very accurate, so I think I may have to inflate 1 or 2 PSI more than the recommended pressure.

Why not get a separate gauge to monitor the pressure rather than depending upon the gauge provided on the inflator?!
