You can get aftermarket power windows fitted in place of OE. These will be around 3-5K depending on the brand.

Couple of years back, my friend's baleno had a problem. The pipe leading to the radiator from the coolant tank was broken right at the tip of the radiator cap. So a replacement pipe would not have worked. We took it to MASS and asked them to have a look at it. At first the service advisor said just replace the radiator. My friend put his foot down and asked for an alternative solution as he was not willing to replace a good radiator just because a piece of plastic broke. A mechanic who was witnessing the entire episode suggested we could try using M-seal to hold the broken part and set to work. He did not guarantee it would work as the heat might not allow it to set properly. He attached the broken pipe to the radiator housing and applied m-seal around it. It worked like a charm. We paid 100Rs to the service centre and 100Rs to the mechanic. Saved atleast 4K. My friend is still driving around with this jugaad for more than 2 years now.
Goes to show how little ingenuity could save serious bucks. But do not attempt these things for crucial components.

I checked with Bimal Auto, Bangalore and they quoted Rs. 9000 including labor. I remember reading a much lower value elsewhere on this forum. Could it be that I confused the clutch plates/pressure plates with the assembly? What else is part of the clutch assembly?

@ rjstyles69 , Unknownsatan, Reality: Thanks. I will check with other service centers like Mandovi. I don't know why Bimal quoted so high. Maybe the service representative I spoke to didn't know the cost.

Where did you see these? Can anyone shed light on the quality of such options?

Default "Lucky Auto Parts" in Hyderabad

Hey Guys. I drive a 2004 baleno and absolutely love the car. Recently i've been replacing a few parts and try my best to use genuine SGP parts. Now, there are a few times that i haven't got the required parts at the Maruti dealer. After enquiring around, a lot of people suggested "Lucky auto parts" based on Minister Road, Secunderabad.

Quite surprisingly, he stocks a lot of parts. I've got Engine mounts, Front suspensions, etc. BUT they're not SGP. These are some indian make but they do serve the purpose. Prices are unbeatable!!

Now, how many of you have bought parts from here and what has your experience been so far? I want to know how reliable these parts are. I'm OK buying parts from Lucky since the Maruti dealers also have directed me to him.

Any advice / feedback is highly appreciated.

I would never use non-Sgp-Mgp parts for critical parts

Absolutely not worth buying it even if it is MGP if this person is not authorized by maruti to sell them. I wouldnt mind getting parts like breaklight assembly, headlight assembly, monogram, door pads, plastics, orvms etc but as filcord said, nothing important would go in like engine mounts, suspensions etc.

Hi FJhustler. Do they sell parts for only maruthi vehicles or they sell for other vehicles also? Do they sell accessories also?

He is authorised to sell by Maruti and like i mentioned earlier, the Maruti workshop people themselves have recommended him. (which is quite strange).To quote an example here, i visited RM Motors which is a few shops away from Lucky. Turns out that they also asked me to buy parts from him. When i checked on reliability of the products with them, they gave a thumbs up!! Strange.

Hey..They sell spares for all vehiicles. While i was there, he also was giving parts for a Daewoo Matiz!!

They have 3 floors only of spare parts of cars. But again, my concern here is the reliability of these parts. That's why i wanted to check with people who have had any good or bad experiences with them.

Call Maruti and check with them -1800 1800 180. I dont have first hand experience with these people but if they give a genuine bill with VAT paid and offer a warranty, you could be reasonably sure they are ok. However, I still wouldnt put critical parts unless maruti (corporate) themself told me they were authorized to deal with them.

It is very easy to get the boxes and packaging to put the spurious parts in. Also, these could be genuinely manufactured by the OEM for these parts but not come via maruti. Which could mean they were Quality rejects as well. not worth risking for critical parts.

I had to replace the back side of the right outer rear view mirror. (it's black in colour) for my Swift.

Someone suggested this Shop and told me that I should get it for 100 rs. When I went there the owners showed me few not so good pieces and asked for 200 or 300 Rs and I did not like the way they treated the customers.

The shop does very well I think and so the carefree attitude towards small time customers. Luckily for me they did not have normal VXI ORVM caps as it comes in Black and they had all coloured ones.

Finally got one for Rs 70 in Varun motors during regular servicing.
So the shop might have all sorts of parts but they are far from customer friendly.
