I think his signature is pointing at something bad which might have happened. may be they stole everything in his car including jack and left

And worse, not do something about it. The same thing happened to a friend's wagon R too. ( he didnt lose the jack tho)

@ jkdas :
No point being alive if so :P

The reflector is available from shops?
And if MASS quoted 750Rs for all these, then its an ok price I guess.

As i said, i have no clue, but i do suspect that when my parents had taken my car out on a day (this happened a couple of months ago), they had a tyre puncture which they got fixed from a roadside "Rikshawala". I guess they may have been a little careless and he fleeced with kit.
Or
It can be that the MASS i had serviced my car in(Perfect Motors Faridabad) might have stolen it. No point approaching them now, its been 1 year. But I will enquire with them anyway.

I burst into laughter reading that!
No actually the signature is related to a political event. The last general elections. Think about it, and you will understand. Hint- concentrate on the bold word

Since you have lost this kit, why not buy yourself a good aftermarket one which is a more comprehensive in terms of the tools?
smart man. as for gurgaon, there's enough places within sec15 and thereabouts to build a decent one.

If MASS, go to alva spares

better to buy the cross type as its hold on to the nut prevents slipping when used by the general public than the small angle one which comes as standard.
No! IIRC the toolbag only has the jack handle and spanner. I got that for around 250 or so. Original jack is still in the car, didn't need that... so didn't inquire about the price.

Got it now, the bold thing
instead of taking the MASS original flimsy design one its better to buy the small three point one which holds the car stable even with the passengers sitting inside. i cant remember its price 250 or 400( what you loose is it will not sit neatly like the original design). the screw driver is 100. wheel spanner 175.
reflective trangle; in India when car itself with flashing light is not noticed what is this going to do anyways.

DCEite, drive too CP, park there & take the Metro to Chawri Bazaar. Buy all that you need at extremely reasonable prices (even if you add on Petrol & Metro costs) & come back.

And then close this thread mate
