I dont think it voids the warranty as i had mine installed after about 10k kms which i clocked in bout 5 months.

Although i never faced any problem with the engine to claim the warranty but my assumtion is that it wont get void.

Also there are no problems in getting accidental claims ( i've taken multiple claims )

Make sure that you go through the correct person before installing the FFE cos it needs to be installed with great precision.

I had to wait at the installers garage for about 3-4 hours just to make sure that they do it properly , I also made the guy who was getting it done wait with me to make sure that everything was done as it should be done.

I would also suggest you to go for a conical K&N which would improve your vehicles performance and also the mileage by about 2 kmpl.

I could have guided you if you were in Delhi

please ask your MASS. tell them that you have fitted a FFE and ask them whether the warranty still stands for the engine and its parts like valves, O2 sensors etc.
any nonstandard fitment voids the warranty. this holds true to each and every manufacturer.

Accident claims are irrespective of warranty.

arpandiv,have look @ the ebay,you may find them if you are lucky.that is the easiest way to buy & will be there within days @ your door step.

FFE & CAI:Major preference should be given for Installation these products.get in touch with right person who are expertise in doing them.

Default Acessories needed for my Alto LXI

Hi there,

I need some advice on some accessories for my 2008 Alto LXI. When I bought my car in May 2008, I installed one small accessory, which I felt was extremely useful. I had the mechanics install the switch that activates the cabin light when the rear doors are open. The front two doors are installed with this switch, but for some unknown reason, the switches are not fitted on the rear doors.

This is strange, especially since the provision is kept on the Alto LXI’s rear doors for this fitment. And more mysterious is the fact that though the switches cost only Rs 30 apiece, Maruti did not feel it necessary to put them on a Rs 3 lakh LXI. These rear door switches are really useful when children are in the back seat or simply to warn the driver that one of the four doors has not been closed properly. Incidentally, even the Ritz LDI does not come fitted with back door switches, though the provision has been made. Strange. I would recommend this small but useful accessory to all Alto and Ritz owners.

Having said that, I am in need of the following accessories for my Alto LXI and I would be grateful for advice in ways to procure these.

1. Day/night mirror – My earlier Matiz had this day-night mirror. It is very useful specially at night when drivers behind you use their headlights.

2. Split rear seat – Very useful to add more space to the cabin and still allow a third person to sit in the car.

3. Hatch door light – It helps to have a light on the hatch door, to view the things stored behind.

4. Hatch door switch – Just as I installed a rear door switch, which would activate the cabin if the rear doors are not closed properly, I would be interested if there is a provision to install a switch that would activate the cabin light if the hatch door is not closed properly.


Many thanks,
Melvyn

My Alto LXi of 2005 has the cabin light switch on all five doors! Don't understand what Maruti is saving off these ~INR50 switches!!!

i too dint know this. in my 2004 alto LX the cabin light comes on even if the bonnet/hatch door/rear doors/front doors are left open.

this is a very important security feature. Hell with maruti to omit these on new altos. cutting down on the boot trims and all was okay but these switches is not at all acceptable.

How do I get the Maruti service personnel to install the switches on my LXI bonnet and hatch? When I enquired, the Maruti serive advisors told me that there was no provision to fit a switch on the hatch door of my LXI.

Forget about a Rs 3L Alto, I was shocked to notice the Rs 30 switch missing on the rear doors of my brother-in-law's brand new Rs 5.1L Ritz LDI.

That's cost-cutting at its best. Now you know how companies bring down their car prices. Just multiply Rs.30 with the number of Altos being sold in the market and then you can understand its implications in a larger perspective.

Incidentally, I was made to pay Rs 100 as labour charges by the MASS for fitting the switches on the two rear doors, barely a week after after I purchased the LXI.

Who knows, maybe Maruti may start selling the next altos with a single wiper or even a single reverse (white) light, as I have seen in some cars like Logan.

But I hope to get some advice on my queries sent in my earlier post, namely the day-night mirror, possibility of putting/installing a rear split seat (like Vista or Ritz) and a light for the hatch section (similar to a cabin light in front).

Thanks,
Melvyn
