Something that I always wanted to ask... How does one ensure that they actually put the oil you gave them and not the default servo/castrol one?

Guys today i went to this "HYUNDAI PLAZA" on mathura road ahead of apollo hospital. This is a Company owned outlet. I spoke to the service manager, i told him bout my car having 25K on the odo and i was looking for the fourth service. He said The car has to be service either at 20K or 30K so if i opt to do the 20K service it would cost me Rs 2000. and if i opt for 30K service it would be around Rs 3500. He also told me that at 30K service various part like filters, plugs etc are changed thats why the extra cost. Decarbonisation was quoted at Rs1200. Now i have an extended warranty thingie and till today i thought it was like having "free services" lol and now i get this quote. I had got my third service done at around 18K on the odo. SO what u guys think ? is the service quote ok? and should i wait till my car runs bout 28K or so on the odo? for the 30K service?

1. Service are at 10k intervals
2. Do it in time; remember oil lasts 10k
3. My 3rd service cost me 0 Rs.
4. But I had to pay Rs.840 (with tax) for Decarbonising
5. Get magnatex, its good.
6. I think you have a bad *** guy

3500Rs for a Santro service; you must be joking!

hey used ABRO engine flush today on my car.Put it in where u put the oil.Idled for like 5 min and then removed all the oil.The mechanic said it would be good if we could remove the oil sump and clean the strainer too.Asked him to go ahead with it.Tried everything to remove the sump but it did not come out.Ultimately told him to fix everything and that A** bent my gearshifter linkage as he loosed the engine mountings and stuff.Now the gear shifter is daam hard.He asked me to come tomorrow and he will remove the shifter forks and fix it.He better..otherwise a punch is awaiting his face.
Anway getting back to topic brough the engine flush for 140 bucks.Castrol magnatec 3 liters for 640 bucks and oil filter for 70 bucks and all done and i must say after the engine flush thing done the engine is Like BRAND NEW
