Matte black will look more like a plastic grille. Instead try a DIY of glossy black and see the results. Though it wont be very prominent, it will have a better look. Else try carbon fiber textured vinyl too.

I have ONLY used fully synthetic oil in my SX4 Diesel (same DDiS 200 engine) - Mobil1 0W40. Even after 85,000 km and 5 years, it sounds like a petrol engine!

The reason for not opting 16"alloys
is the area in which the car is to be driven, it has to be driven on a patch of highway and rest on intercity road (not a proper highway) which is also not well maintenaned. Also keeping the coming monsoon season in mind i felt that 16 would have been better in my case.

Totally agree with your point. I had 185/65 in my mind but my brother talked me to get 195/60. He was insisting too much for 195/60 so I got these then.

Isn't your cars engine filled with synthetic oil since Day 1?

Maruti currently uses MGDO (Maruti Genuine Diesel Oil) which is Mobil Super 5W40 (Fully Synthetic) that costs somewhere ₹580/litre.

Check your 3rd service bill for oil details.

After so much of confusion between s-cross, ecosport and ciaz, finally decided to go with ciaz. Looking at diesel (ZDI+) since I need to commute daily from Hosur to bangalore as my work place in domlur. Any one has idea of current offers/discounts on ciaz in bangalore?

OT: Is it wise to buy in Bangalore considering my home is in Hosur? Thinking about RTO issues :(

May be your brother has a point, going in with 195ers. It will obviously help increasing the traction and control,(specially on those mountainous roads in slippery conditions) though you will have to sacrifice a bit on comfort.
Try increasing tire pressure by 1-2 psi and you shouldn't feel any difference in comfort and marginal increase in GC.
Do update your results here. I'll be travelling to doon in august in middle of monsoon.

If your home is in Hosur, wouldn't it be easier to get it registered in TN? You will save some amount on taxes as well right? Any specific reason why you want to register in KA? Your daily toll receipts will prove that you are a resident of Hosur anyway.

I was also in the same situation with respect to the car choice and went with the S-Cross . Congrats on your decision!!

I heard even after showing toll receipts, RTO was catching TN-70(hosur) vehicles as well. So did not want to risk it. :(

Is this Mobil MGDO oil available outside for purchase? I have checked Mobil's website it doesn't list it, though its available on amazon.Has mobile discontinued the oil? My service center doesn't stock mobil ,only castrol and sometimes shell.

The oils listed on mobil website are:
1. Mobil 1 0w40: 1350/liter MRP
2. Mobil 1 5w50: 1175/liter MRP
3. Mobil 1 5w30 ESP: 1375/Liter MRP

All the above are more than 1k rs per liter while the Maruti MGDO cost 639/l, seems a bit less for full synthetic.

For our hot climate is 5w50 Ok for the ciaz diesel or stick to the recommended 5w30 or 0w40 can also be used?'

Regards.

I got the MGDO Mobil Super 5W40 from my local MGP stockist. They have it on sale with 10% discount. Paid 2K for the 3.5L pack.

Recommended grades for my Swift Diesel are:
1) 15W40 (Mineral),
2) 5W30 and
3) 5W40.

I am happy with 5W40 and moreover ASC's here fill 5W40 over 5W30.

Since the engine is same in the Swift and Ciaz albeit different turbo, the engine oil recommendation would be same I guess.

I bought Ciaz ZXi+ AT 3 weeks ago. I have done 1200+ kms so far - mix of city / highway / ghats and Ciaz AT handled them all very well. City drives included two 45mins and 1hr long traffic jams. Average FE in these mixed driving conditions is 13.3kmpl as per MID (was 8.8kmpl at the delivery time) which I think is great for a car of this size and it's continuing to improve. AT is definitely a boon in city traffic and suits my sedate driving style. But trust me, it's an eager performer. Power delivery is linear and you may feel a lag of 1-1.5 secs in gear shifts when you floor the pedal. But I like it because linear power delivery makes the drive very predictable and it is not jumpy in the bumper-to-bumper city traffic. Cruising NVH levels are awesomely low even with stock Apollo tyres. I am loving my drives....just that I am driving a lot more than I normally would have done in a stick-shift
